Names of the Tzadikkim

about

By saying the names of the Tzadikkim

1. By mentioning the names of the righteous, one can

bring about a change in nature (Sefer haMidot, Tzaddik

II:22).

2. Someone who reveres God should write down all

the names of the righteous and the Tanaim for

commemoration (ibid., Tzaddik I:19).

3. Within the name of the righteous is enclothed and

incorporated the Name of God. Hence, when the name

of the righteous is enhanced, so is God's Name

enhanced, and to the extent that the name of the righteous is enhanced will the Name of God be

enhanced, for His Name is incorporated in our names

(Likutey Moharan II:67).

The benefit of writing the names of the righteous and

reciting them is revealed in the Sefer haMidot,

"Someone who reveres God should write down all the

names of the righteous and

the Tanaim for commemoration" (Tzaddik I:19), and is alluded to in the verse, "A book of commemoration was written before him, for those who fear God and revere His Name." In addition, in the Sefer haMidot, "By mentioning the names of the righteous, one can bring about a change in nature" (ibid. Tzaddik II:20).

PRAYERS TO BE SAID AFTER RECITING

THE NAMES OF THE TZADIKIM

May it be Your will, O God and God of our fathers,

that in the merit of all these righteous people

whom I have recited before You, mighty pious ones,

masters of Torah, seers, prophets and Tzaddikim, in

the merit of their holy names and the merit of their

Torah and the good acts they did before You, that You

have mercy on us with Your abundant compassion

and find us worthy to draw the light of their holiness

upon us. May we merit to follow in their footsteps so

that we henceforth are able with their great powers to

return to You sincerely and follow the path of the

upright before You. Place in the hearts of all the

Tzaddikim - not only those I have mentioned but also

those hidden Tzaddikim who lived in each generation

whose names I don't know-that they all protect us

and argue on our behalfs before You so that You have

mercy and compassion upon us, placing in our hearts

the desire to return to You sincerely, removing from

us our hearts of stone and replacing them with

hearts of flesh, so that we merit to follow in their

footsteps and be together with them in Gan Eden.

Help us in the merit of our having recited the names

of the Tzaddikim that we merit to have all our requests

answered before You, regarding whatever our needs

may be, whether in material or spiritual concerns.

Override nature and

guide us directly with Your

providence for our benefit, for blessing, for life and

for peace. May abundance be drawn upon us for good,

for blessing, for life, for health, livelihood and all

good, above and beyond the natural course of events.
