Daily Blessings: For Life Moments

For joyous occasions, such as welcoming a festival, eating a fruit for the first time in a season, putting on a new article of clothing of significant value, seeing a friend after an absence of more than thirty days, and reaching a joyous fulfillment in life:

Transliteration

We praise You, Eternal God, Sovereign of the universe, for giving us life, for sustaining us, and for enabling us to reach this time of joy.

 

On hearing good tidings:

Transliteration

We praise You, Eternal God, Sovereign of the universe, the Source of good.

 

On hearing of a death, so that we remember there is an ultimate Ruler in the universe who has a purpose for life and so that we praise God in our sadness as well as in our joy:

Transliteration

We praise You, Eternal God, Sovereign of the universe, the righteous Judge.
