“May it be your will Hashem, my G-d and G-d of my forefathers, that You show favor to me (my husband, my sons, my daughters, my father, my mother) and all of my relatives; and that You grant us and all Israel a good long life; that You remember us with beneficent memory and blessing; that You consider us with a consideration of salvation and compassion; that you bless us with great blessings, that You make our households complete; that You cause Your Presence to dwell among us. Privilege me to raise children and grandchildren who are wise and understanding, who will”love Hashem and fear G-d, people of truth, holy offspring attached to Hashem who will illuminate the world with Torah and good deeds and with every labor in the service of the Creator. Please hear my supplication at this time in the merit of Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah our mothers, and cause our light to illuminate that it be not extinguished forever, and let our countenance shine so that we are saved. Amen.” Taken from the Art Scroll Siddur.
