Special Prayer For After Lighting Shabat Candles

May it be Your will, Hashem my G-d and the G-d of my fathers, that You be gracious to me (and to my spouse, children, parents) and to all my family; grant us and all Yisrael good and long life; remember us for good and blessing; consider us for salvation and compassion; bless us with great blessings; make our household complete, crowning our home with the feeling of Your Divine Presence dwelling among us.

Make me worthy to raise learned children and grandchildren, who are wise and understanding, who love and fear G-d, people of truth, holy and attached to G-d, who will dazzle the world with Torah and goodness and service of G-d. Please hear our prayers, in the merit of our matriarchs Sarah, Rivkah, Rachel and Leah, and ensure that the glow of our lives will never be dimmed. Show us the glow of Your face and we will be saved. Amen.
