Prayer

Barukh Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melekh Ha-olam, asher yatzar et ha-adam b'chokhmah u-vara vo n'kavim n'kavim chalulim chalulim. Galui v'yadua lif'nei khisei khvodekha she-im ippate'ach echad meihem o yisatem echad meihem i efshar l'hitkayem v'la'amod l'fanekha. Barukh atah Adonai rofei khol basar u-mafli la'asot.

Blessed are You, our God, Spirit of the World, who wisely formed the human body. You created it with openings here and vessels there. You know well that should even one of these stay opened, or one of those stay closed, we could not long survive. Blessed are You, Healer of all flesh, who makes the wonders of creation.
