Lord of the universe, fulfill the worthy desires of our

hearts and in Thy loving kindness pardon our iniquities.

Cleanse us of all our sins, and remember us for good, for sal-

vation and compassion. Bless us with a long and happy life,

a life of usefulness and peace. Give us bread to eat and

rainment to put on, substance and honor, and length of days

to meditate in Thy Torah and fulfill Thy commandments. 0 do

Thou send healing for all our sorrows and bless all the work

of our hands. Ordain for us good decrees of salvation and com-

fort, and annul all severe judgments against us.
