Prayer before the New Moon

June 20, 2011

May it be Thy will, O Lord our God
and the God of our fathers,
to renew unto us this coming month
for good and for blessing.
O grand us long life, a life of blessing,
of sustenance, of bodily vigour,
a life marked by the fear of Heaven
and the dread of sin, a life free from shame and reproach;
a life in which the desires of our heart
shall be fulfilled for good.

– from A Book of Jewish Thoughts selected and arranged by the Chief Rabbi, Dr. J. H. Hertz, 1921
