Last Night's Prayer

יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָֿנֶיךָֿ,
בּוֹרֵא עוֹלָמוֹתֿ וּמַחֲרִיבָֿן,
שֶׁתַּשְׁכִּיבֵֿנִי בְשָׁלוֹם
וּתְֿקִימֵנִי בְשָׁלוֹם;
וְתַֿצִּילֵנִי מִכָּל מִינֵי
עִכּוּבִֿים,
עִצּוּלִים,
וְשִׁקּוּצִים.*
וְאֵצֵא לַדֶּרֶךְֿ בַּבֹּקֶר
שָׂמֵחַ, וּבְֿטוּבֿ לֵבָֿבֿ,
כִּי אֶמְצָא מְקוֹם חֲנָיָה חָדָֿשׁ
בִּשְׁבִֿיל מְכֿוֹנִיתִֿי,
שֶׁתְּחָנֵּנִי בְרַחֲמֶיךָֿ הָרַבִּים.
וְלֹא אֶצְטָרֵךְֿ לָנוּדֿ וְלָנוּעַ,
וְלֹא לְהָזִיז אֶתֿ רִכְֿבִֿי
אָנָה וְאָנָה
מִפַּחַדֿ חִלּוּפֵֿי הַצְּדָֿדִֿים.
אָמֵן.



*note:
 that's שיקוץ in the Israeli slang sense of "random bad adjective applied jokingly to friends", not in the racist sh--g-tz sense, חס ושלום.

Not וְיָצָאתִי לַדֶּרֶךְ בַּבֹּקֶר, with ultimate stress on the first word?

I often believed that alternate side parking is a religion of its own...

Of course I davven in Biblical Hebrew:

וַתִּתֶּן לנו יי א-להינו באהבה שבתות למנוחה וראשי חדשים לכפרה

LOL, was this inspired by my email?

Unfortunately now I'll need this as I've been kicked out of the parking lot. Until they let me back I guess I'll just have to daven real hard.

PS -

BTW the shiva family provided free parking for everyone so I was OK. Thanks anyway.

not to burst your bubble, but naaaaa, it was inspired by hoping to wake up early and move my car :-)
