Jewish Prayers From the Heart and Pen of Alden Solovy

This Bounty

This prayer celebrates G-d’s bounty and grace, making it a lovely Sukkot prayer.

This Bounty
G-d of abundance,
You have blessed me
With Your bounty
Your love,
Your grace,
The treasures of Your creation.

In gratitude for these gifts,
Holy One,
Bless me with wisdom
To use them with skill,
In service to Your holy name.

Bless me with humility
To use them with joy
In service to Your creation.

Bless me with a strong arm
And a curious mind
In service to Your commandments.

Bless me with a generous heart
And a forgiving hand
In the name of tikkun olam.

Bless me with gentle speech
And joyous laughter,
So that all my works
Summon holiness into Your world.

Then, Rock of Israel,
I will honor Your glorious gifts
With all my being.

Blessed are You, Adonai our G-d,
Your bounty calls us to service.
