Daily Blessings: For Life Moments

Campers smiling

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:

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:

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:

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

 

On recovering from serious illness or upon escape from danger:

I praise You, Eternal God, Sovereign of the universe, who restores me to health and safety.
