May it be Your will, Hashem, our God and the God of our forefathers, that You lead us toward peace, emplace our footsteps toward peace, guide us toward peace, and make us reach our desired destination for life, gladness, and peace. May You rescue us from the hand of every foe, ambush, bandits, and evil animals along the way, and from all manner of punishments that assemble to come to earth. May You send blessing in our every handiwork, and grant us grace, kindness, and mercy in Your eyes and in the eyes of all who see us. May You hear the sound of our supplication, because You are God Who hears prayer and supplication. Blessed are You, Hashem, Who hears prayer.


Some also add the following:

Jacob went on his way and angels of God encountered him. Jacob said when he saw them, 'This is a Godly camp.' So he named the place Machanayim.

For Your salvation I do long, Hashem.

Behold, I send an angel before you to protect you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared.
