וְזַכֵּנִי לְגַדֵל בָּנִים וּבְנֵי בָנִים, חֲכָמִים וּנְבוֹנִים, אוֹהַבֵי הַשֵם, יִראֵי אֶלֹקִים, אַנְשֵי אֶמֶת, זֶרַע קוֹדֶשׁ, בַשֵם דְּבֵקִים, וּמְאִירִים אֶת הָעוֹלָם בַּתוֹרָה וּבְמַעֲשִים טוֹבִים, וּבְּכָל מְלֶאכֶת עֲבוֹדַת הַבוֹרֵא.
May I merit to raise children and grandchildren, wise/sagacious and intelligent/understanding, who love Hashem, fear God, and speak the truth. May they be holy offspring, who cleave to God, and light up the world with Torah and good deeds, and with service to the Creator.
