PRAYER BEFORE THE NEW MOON
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 grant 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.
May the Holy One, blessed be He, renew it unto us and unto all His people, the house of Israel, for life and peace, for gladness and joy, for salvation and consolation; and let us say, Amen.
