בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה׳ מָקוֹר הַחַיִּים
שֶׁבָּרָא אוֹתָנוּ בְּצַלְמוֹ,
וּמַּזְמִין אוֹתָנוּ לְחַדֵּשׁ בְּכָל יוֹם תָּמִיד
מַעֲשֵׂה בְּרֵאשִׁית.
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה׳ יוֹצֵר יְצִירִים׃
Blessed are You, Source of Life
Who created us in Your image[1] Genesis 1:27 
and invites us to renew daily, perpetually,
the work of creation.[2] Cf. the prayer following the opening blessing of Shaḥarit: הַמֵּאִיר לָאָרֶץ וְלַדָּרִים עָלֶיהָ בְּרַחֲמִים. וּבְטוּבו מְחַדֵּשׁ בְּכָל יום תָּמִיד מַעֲשה בְרֵאשִׁית. (“The one who illuminates the land and those who dwell upon it with compassion; and in their goodness renews daily, perpetually, the work of Creation.”) 
Blessed are You, God, Who created us creative.
