Here we come today, as one family,

Asking You to bless this festival, Watad,

You-- who have set up Your tent, Church, incarnated, and raised your tents with wedges--bless this festival, all its participants and volunteers to ensure its success,

In order that we may become witnesses of faith, joy, love,

Make us messengers of unity wherever we are, and tools for Your peace in our beloved homeland, Jordan, as well as in all the countries of the Middle East and the world,

thus, our life will be in the service of all, in glorification of God who has always been keeping us in His Mercy and care as He is eternal and dominant, Amen.
