יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ ה’ אֱלֹהֵינוּ
שֶתַּסִּיעֵינוּ לְשָלוֹם
וְתַרְכִּיבִנוּ בְּבִטְחָה
וְתַנְחֵנוּ בִּבְרָכָה
וְתַצִּילֵנוּ מִכָּל תַּקָּלָה וְקוֹל רַעַשׁ־אוֹפָן,
נֶהָג דֹּוהֵר וּמֶרְכָּבָה מְרַקֵּדָה (לפי נחום ג:ב)
הַמְצֵא בָּנוּ אֶת אַחֲדוּת הָחוֹמֶר וְהָרוּחַ,
אֶת אַהֲבַת הָעֲלִיָּה וְהַיְּרִידָה
הַרְאֵנוּ אֶת פָּנֶיךָ, בַּפְּרָטִים הַקְּטָנִים,
בִּפְנֵי אָדָם אַחֵר
וּתְנֵנּוּ לְהַתְמִיד בְּדֶרֶך אֶמֶת שָלוֹם וְאַהֲבָה.
בָּרוּך אַתָּה ה’ שוֹמֵעַ תְּפִילָּה.
May it be Your will, our God
That You lead us toward peace;
that You enable us to ride in safety;
that You lead us with blessing.
Save us from all accidents and unstable wheels,
from a dangerous driver and a bounding chariot.[1] after Nahum 3:2.  
Inspire in us unity of the material and the spiritual,
Love of the ascent as well as the descent.
Show us Your face, in the smallest of details
and in the countenance of the other.
Enable us to persevere on our journey toward love, truth and peace.
Blessed are You, haShem, the One who hears prayer.
