Another Prayer for Children

I don't know about you, but between all the emails I get and blogs I read, I must get reminded about 10-15 times to recite the prayer for children by the Shelah Hakadosh on Erev Rosh Hodesh Sivan every year.  (I get around the same on the Tuesday of Parshat Beshalah to recite the Parshat HaMan.)

So, just to be different, I'm going to link to another prayer for children, written by R' Eliezer Pappo, the author of the Pele Yo'etz, in his book Beit Tefilah.  (It's the long section in bold-face blue.)  Alternatively, it can be found on p. 21 of this file.

It doesn't hurt to recite either prayer - or both.

i didn't say either tefillah. if it is my custom in my family to say the tefillah, then fine. but i don't start adopting segulos and minhagim (even positive ones) because of popularization by Internet and chain mail.

that said, it IS a tefillah, and expresses a fine sentiment.

Point well taken.

And I'm not going to tell people to say them - but I will tell people that it doesn't hurt to say them. It may even help.

blessings. i agree with you. it does not hurt to say them. good words. dont hurt. and yes, it does help. it guides the person. and we can add our own requests in between. although i am a noahide i have been saying this prayer for years, but yesterday, could only say it once.
