Prayers from the Heart of rabbi natan from breslev hasidim
Calmness of Mind
Master of the World, merit me to the attribute of peace. Let me be a lover of peace and to always pursue peace. Guard me and save me through Your immense compassion from the trait of wanting to triumph over others and from controversy stemming from the other side. Let my heart be free from these traits which come from blood in the body which has not been used to serve the Holy One. Have mercy upon me and merit me from now on to study Torah and pray a lot.
May I speak out many words of Torah and prayer every single day until I use every drop of blood in me to service God. May all the drops of blood within me become holy words of Torah and prayer until no drop of blood remains that has not served the Holy One. Father, merit me to serve You with all my strength throughout my lifetime with every drop of blood that I have. Let me verbalize so many words of Torah and prayer that my body becomes completely negated as if
IT is actually nothing at all. Please merit me to perfect fear before You at all times. Draw down and bestow in my heart fear, shame, dread and a great awe before You constantly. Through this, merit me to clarify, elevate and purify all the letters and sparks that fell into the world, as ‘broken vessels’. As a result of my sins and enormous iniquities, in this lifetime and in previous lifetimes.
These sins lead to controversy, doubts, confusion and obstacles to Your holy service and from these stem all the physical cravings in the world. May I have the strength to elevate all the fallen sparks to You. As a result, may the Holy One and the Shechinah be united and through this, may a great and wonderful peace exist in the World Above and Below and in all the worlds. Let there be great love and peace between all the Jewish people and all created things in the world.
