YHVH, our heavenly Father,
We need you this week. We want to please you in all we do. We can't do anything without you, and we can do all things with you. We ask you to remember your covenant with us. You promise us blessing, success, and an abundant life. We are trying hard to follow your precious Torah. It is the very essence of life and we choose life.
Sometimes it is hard for us to follow. We repent for the times this week that we left the narrow path. Sometimes our house blows up (or so it seems.) Sometimes we get very frustated with our kids and say things less than edifying. Sometimes we are lazy and don't get our work done. Sometimes we forget to spend time with you, our precious Elohim. Please forgive us.
We give this week to you. Take our tongues, and only allow good things to flow from them. Take our husbands, may we be good helpmeets to them. Take our children, let us teach them about your Torah. Help us see the moments when their hearts are soft. Give us wisdom to deal with them righteously. Take our homes, and let them be a place of shalom, a place of growth, a place of safety, a place of righteousness. Help us to be diligent in our calling.
We thank you for the victory! We thank you for a blessed week that we are about to experience. You are a wonderful Elohim, and we are honored to serve you. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
