Have a Petition in your Pocket

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding in all they way acknowledge him and he shall direct they path.                                                        Proverbs 3: 5-5

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.                                                              Psalms 4: 8

I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore.                         Genesis 11: 17

May the Lord protect and defend you.
May he always shield you from shame.
May you come to be
in Israel, a shining name.

May you be like Ruth and like Esther.
May you be deserving of praise.
Strengthen them, Oh Lord,
and keep them from the stranger's ways.


May God bless you and grant you long lives.
(May the Lord fulfill our Sabbath prayer for you.)
May God make you good mothers and wives.
(May He send you husbands who will care for you.)

May the Lord protect and defend you.
May the Lord preserve you from pain.
Favor them, Oh Lord, with happiness and peace.
Oh, hear our Sabbath prayer.          Amen
SABBATH PRAYER
PSALM OF LIFE
Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time:

Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us, then be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate:
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.
                           Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
