Continuing the new series of translated prayers, this time from the booklet of prayers by Rabbi Berland to have Children Who Are Tzaddikim.
#30: Master of the world who can do anything, from whom nothing is withheld, grant me the merit to raise my sons and daughters with holy and pure thoughts.
Only for the sake of Your great and awesome name which is called for me.
And may I sanctify Your name at every moment and minute with pure and holy thoughts, and at each and every moment may I place before my eyes Your great and awesome name, yud kei vav kei, and all of my actions and thoughts and words will be only according to Your great and awesome name.
And may I always be attached to You, with song and dance, with pleasantness and melody.
And may I fulfil the verse, “and my melodies I will play for the house of G-d all the days of my life” and may I only sing and chant to You, me and my sons and my daughters and all my descendants.
And may I raise them to Torah and good deeds, through song and melody, and may they know no lacking ever.
And may all my actions, speech and thoughts be only be truly for the sake of heaven, and may I be attached to You without pausing for a moment at all, and without pausing for a second at all, until I will merit to see You face to face, like the children of Israel at Mount Sinai.
And the name of Havaya will not leave from before my eyes even for a small moment.
Please, Merciful and Gracious One, grant me the merit of true humility and lowliness, and may I know true lowliness.
And from now and forever may I serve you only with truth and simplicity, and may all my intention be only to truly serve You, me and my wife (husband), my sons and my daughters.
And may I merit the verse, “I am Your servant the son of Your maidservant”.
And may I merit to be the attendant to Your glory and honor, like Miriam the prophetess who went out with drums and dancing, and like Devorah the prophetess who sang on Mount Tabor and redeemed the nation of Israel from all its suffering, and like Yael who merited to kill Sisera.
So too grant me the merit to bring the Redemption closer and the building of Jerusalem through my good deeds.
And may I begin to bring myself closer to You in truth and simplicity, and at every moment and second. And fulfill in me the scripture which is written about our Matriarch Sarah, “Hashem knows the days of simplicity and their inheritance, they will be forever”.
So too, grant me the merit to be the most simple and genuine in the generation, and to cling to You in truth and simplicity at every moment and second.
And may all my actions be sourced in the simplicity of truth, and may I yearn and long for only the truth of truth at every moment and second, until You will be revealed to me, face to face, like You revealed Yourself to Moshe the faithful shepherd
And in the merit of this may we all merit the building of the Beit HaMikdash speedily and in our days, Amen.
- Master of the world who can do anything, grant me the merit to be, “a hind sent off who delivers beautiful sayings”.
And may I merit to be truly righteous, like our holy and awesome teacher (Rabbenu) and all the days of our lives, may me and my husband (wife) merit to be always like a bride and groom.
Like it’s written, “who made (203) joy (656) and happiness (359) groom (458) and bride (61) = 1237”.
And may I merit that my husband (I) and my children will learn Torah day and night and pray day and night because prayer and Torah (622) are equal (441) against (77) all (50) the Mitzvot (547) = 1237.
32. Master of the world who can do anything and from whom nothing is withheld.
Grant me the merit to pour out my heart like water before You, and grant me the merit that all my sons and daughters will go in the path of Hashem, and will merit to be the most righteous in the generation.
And the soul of our holy teacher (Rabbenu HaKadosh) will be imbued in all of them.
Please Merciful and Gracious One who can do anything, please hear my voice, my supplications, “I love Him, because Hashem hears my voice, my supplications”.
And fulfill in me the verse, “show me (276) (401) your appearance (271) let me hear (495) (401) your voice (156)” and may I merit in every thought, speech and action to unify the Holy (415) Name (415) Blessed (232) is He (12).
And through this may I merit the revelation of Eliyahu (52) the Prophet (68) who is remembered (233) for good (47) = 3400, who will be imbued in my sons and daughters, about whom it is said, “and he will return the heart of the fathers to the sons and the heart of the sons to their fathers lest I come and smite the land desolate”.
And perform for me great things and hidden things that never before occurred.
Like it’s written, “and He said, behold, I make a covenant in front of all your nation I will perform wonders which were never created before in all the land and in all the nations, and all the nation from whom you are among will see the acts of G-d which are awesome that I will perform for you”.
And the verse, “you have heard it now see it all happen. Now you, will you not tell of it? Now (515) I will inform you (845) of new events (716), hidden things (758) that you did not (37) know about (524) +3 = 3400. They were created just now, not long ago and not before today and you have never heard of them. Lest you say, ‘Behold I already know of them’. You have neither heard nor have you known, nor was your ear opened to them from before… For the sake of My name, I shall restrain My wrath and for My praise I shall withhold my anger from you.”
And through this, may all my children return in complete teshuva in the blink (305) of an eye (130) = 435, in the merit of the Tzadik (209) the foundation (80) of the world (146) = 435.
And may they merit that the soul of our holy and awesome teacher (Rabbenu HaKadosh) be imbued in all of them.
And may they all merit to bring the complete redemption to the nation of Israel, and to perform miracles and wonders for the nation of Israel, which have never been before.
33. Master of the world who can do anything and from whom nothing is withheld.
Grant me and my wife (husband) the merit to have male sons who are righteous and holy, on the level of Moshiach the son of Yosef, Moshiach the son of David.

And through this, “there will rise before You our memory and our trust and the memory (283) of Moshiach (358) the son of (52) David (14) Your servant (96) and the memory (289) of Jerusalem (496) Your holy (424) city (280).
And may we merit to see the revelation of Eliyahu (52) the prophet (68) = 2412 who is remembered for good, who will bring tidings of Moshiach and the building of the Beit HaMikdash, speedily in our days, in the blink of an eye.

And through this may I merit to feel the taste of Gan (53) Eden (124) = 177 at every moment and every second, all the days of my life.

“Mighty One (215) our Mighty One (271) Hashem (26) our Master (117) how (45) mighty (215) is Your name (360) in all (52) the land (296), and it will be (26) that Hashem (26) will be King (120) over (100) all (50) the land (296) on that (17) day (58) Hashem (26) will be (30) One (13) and His name (346) will be One (13) = 2724”. “Hashem (26) will bless you (252) and guard you (556), Hashem (26) will shine (211) His face (146) towards you (61) and be gracious to you (100), Hashem (26) will lift up (311) His face (146) towards you (61) and grant (346) you (50) peace (376) = 2724”.
Please Hashem who is One, imbue in our children the spirit of Moshiach the son of David.
“And rest upon him the spirit of G-d the spirit of wisdom and understanding the spirit of advice and strength the spirit of knowledge and awe of G-d”.
And may all of our children be the greatest Torah scholars in the generation, and may our holy and awesome teacher (Rabbenu HaKadosh) be imbued in them.

That will light up their souls and bodies like the soul and body of Moshe Rabbenu, peace be upon him, who placed a mask over his face, and may the lights of the holy Shabbat candles draw down the light of our holy teacher (Rabbenu HaKadosh) on my husband (wife) and on me, and on all our descendants, the sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters until the end of all the generations.
And may the light of all of them go and shine out from moment to moment, more and more.
Like it’s written, “and the path of the righteous is like the light of ‘nogah’ which grows brighter until the coming of day”.
