The Ari's Prayer Before Zohar Study

Reading or scanning the Prayer from the Ari, Rav Isaac Luria, before studying the Zohar prepares our vessel for the incredible Light we are about to connect with. Our appreciation and awe for the Zohar increase. We connect with the support of the lineage of kabbalists and ask to be open to receive the Light and secrets of the Zohar.

תפלה קודם הלמוד מהאר"י זיע"א

רבון העולמים ואדוני האדונים אב הרחמים והסליחות מודים אנחנו לפניך ה' אלהינו ואלהי אבותינו בקידה ובהשתחויה שקרבתנו לתורתך ולעבודתך עבודת הקדש ונתת לנו חלק בסודות תורתך הקדושה מה אנו ומה חיינו אשר עשית עמנו חסד גדול כזה על כן אנחנו מפילים תחנונינו לפניך שתמחול ותסלח לכל חטאתינו ועונותינו ואל יהיו עונותינו מבדילים ביננו לביניך.

וכן יהי רצון מלפניך ה' אלהינו ואלהי אבותינו שתכונן את לבבינו ליראתך ולאהבתך ותקשיב אזניך לדברינו אלה ותפתח לבבנו הערל בסודות תורתך ויהיה למודינו זה נחת רוח לפני כסא כבודך כריח נחוח ותאציל עלינו אור מקור נשמתנו בכל בחינתנו ושיתנוצצו ניצוצות עבדיך הקדושים אשר על ידם גלית דבריך אלה.

בעולם וזכותם וזכות אבותם וזכות תורתם ותמימותם קדושתם יעמוד לנו לבל נכשל בדברים אלו ובזכותם תאיר עינינו במה שאנו לומדים כמאמר נעים זמירות ישראל: "גל עיני ואביטה נפלאות תורתך". כי ה' יתן חכמה מפיו דעת ותבונה.

"יהיו לרצון אמרי פי והגיון לבי לפניך ה' צורי וגואלי".

Ruler of the universe, and Master of all masters, The Father of mercy and forgiveness, we thank You, our God and the God of our fathers, by bowing down and kneeling, that You brought us closer to Your Torah and Your holy work, and You enable us to take part in the secrets of Your holy Torah. How worthy are we that You grant us with such big favor, that is the reason we plead before You, that You will forgive and acquit all our sins, and that they should not bring separation between You and us.

And may it be your will before You, our God and the God of our fathers, that You will awaken and prepare our hearts to love and revere You, and may You listen to our utterances, and open our closed heart to the hidden studies of Your Torah, and may our study be pleasant before Your Place of Honor, as the aroma of sweet incense, and may You emanate to us Light from the source of our soul to all of our being. And, may the sparks of your holy servants, through which you revealed Your wisdom to the world, shine.

May their merit and the merit of their fathers, and the merit of their Torah, and holiness, support us so we shall not stumble through our study. And by their merit enlighten our eyes in our learning as it stated by King David, The Sweet Singer of Israel: “Open my eyes, so that I will see wonders from Your Torah” (Psalms 119:18). Because from His mouth God gives wisdom and understanding.

"May the utterances of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart find favor before You, God, my Strength and my Redeemer" (Psalms 19:15).
