Our God and God of our Mothers and Fathers, bring this baby girl into a life of joy, a life of goodness, a life of wisdom. May it be Your will that our daughter be a maker of peace and a pursuer of peace between one person and another, and let her light shine round her to illumine her companions. Strengthen our will and our strength to guide her in the ways of Torah and faithful devotion to You. Give us the ability to lead her in the paths of the valiant women and men of Israel whose actions have shown brightly in all generations of our people's history.
