Tefilat HaDerekh

By Rabbi David Seidenberg

May the holy desire come from You,
YHVH, our Source and our ancestors' Source,
that You will lead us toward peace
and make our every step be a step toward peace
and our path be a path of peace.
May You help us reach the true target of our desire:
life, joy, and peace.
Rescue us from all enmity and ambush and theft and predation,
from all impulses to harm that confront us on this path,
and from any dangerous complications that may arise
from the passions that come into the world.
Bless our actions and handiwork
and grant us grace, love, and compassion
in Your eyes and in the eyes of all who behold us,
for You are the one who is listening to hear the prayer
of every mouth of every creature.
Blessed be You who listens for prayer.
