There are times throughout the year where it is an especially powerful time to daven, or there is a time in someone’s life where they need a special prayer said.

A special Prayer to be Said by the Women of Israel
15:20 Aug 12, '05 / 7 Av 5765 by AruzSheva [blue][b]Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu [/b]has composed a special prayer for Jewish women around the world to [i][b]say prior to lighting Sabbath candles tonight[/b][/i]. According to Rabbi Eliyahu, every woman should light [i][b]two additional candles [/b][/i](with olive oil being preferred). One candle is [i][b]in honor of Rabbi Meir Baal HaNess[/b][/i], one of the most important scholars in Talmudic times, a student of Rabbi Akiva, and an active participant in the Bar Kochba rebellion. The [i][b]other is in honor of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai[/b][/i], the pre-eminent kabbalist and author of the Zohar. Rabbi Eliyahu states that one should light these honorary candles, say the following prayer, and then continue to light the Shabbat candles. The text of the prayer is:[/blue] [red]"May it be Your will, L-rd our G-d and the G-d of our forefathers, that you will have mercy upon us and upon our children, on the nation that sits in Zion and in the Holy Land, and on the holiness of the nation of Israel, and on the holiness of the Land, and on the completeness and security of the nation and the Land. Especially in this period in which a great danger hovers above us in the Holy Land. Master of the Universe: Do this for your sake and not for ours, do this for the sake of your great and awesome Name, that it should not be desecrated amongst the nations and give us salvation!!! And all those who plot evil on your nation, the House of Israel, annul their plans, and ruin their thoughts, and the following verse should come true of them: "Fear and dread should fall upon them with the strength of Your arm they will seem like stone." (Shemot 15:16) And also the following verse should be true of them: "You will blow a wind and you will carry them off and the storm will dash them, and you shall be happy with G-d, in the Holy One of Israel you shall be praised." (Isaiah 41) And we should merit the coming of the Messiah, and the building of Ariel [the third temple]. Our eyes should behold Your merciful return to Zion, Amen, may it be Your will."[/red]
