Give us dew to favor Your earth; sweeten the land in which we live with dew.
Strengthen us with plenty, with grain and wine: sheaves and vines sustained by dew.
Bring wholeness to the Holy City and to all who love her as flowers are renewed by dew.
You have said “I will be like dew to Israel;" may Your mercy well up in us like the dew.
Let the proud and beautiful fruits of our harvest be sustained and graced with dew.
Open our hearts; make us into open vessels to receive the spiritual gifts of dew.
May a light shine forth from darkness to draw us to You, as a root finds water from dew.
We are the people who followed You through the desert as sheep follow a trusted shepherd; favor us with dew.
You are our God, Who causes the wind to blow and the dew to fall.
For blessing and not for curse. Amen. For life and not for death. Amen. For plenty and not for lack. Amen.
Thanks to Rachel Barenblat for this translation and the following: "The Prayer for Dew is a special poem recited once a year during the afternoon service on the first day of Pesaḥ. Rabbi Rachel Barenblat first presented her d’var tefillah on Passover in 2009 and shared her prayer for dew in 2015 (cross-posted at her website here). In the Amidah, many Jewish liturgies replace the request for rain (recited during the traditional rainy season in the land of Israel) with a prayer for dew, beginning on this day. — Aharon Varady"
