יהי רצון מלפניך…
Yehi Ratson milfanekha
May it be your will, God of compassion and grace,
that I can remember that every bite I eat today is my Mitsvah.
God of mercy,
help me remember that this food fuels my soul
so that I may serve you in health for another year.
Just as you are slow to anger,
abundant in kindness and truth —
let me be so with myself
in the moments when I feel guilt or shame,
knowing that this is my mitsvah.
Allow me to be amongst those
with whom you preserve kindness
for a thousand generations.
May it be your will that I eat
knowing it is not a sin,
and that although you are
the forgiver of iniquity, willful sin, and errors —
my eating will not be amongst those moments
which are cleansed by repentance today.
Allow me the self awareness
to not slip into that space.
I am but your servant,
and need to eat
so that I may dwell in your house
all my days.
