On the first day of Pesach we change one line in our daily prayers: instead of asking God for rain, we ask God for dew. It's also traditional to recite a prayer specifically for dew. A few years ago I wrote a d'var tefilah ("word about prayer") on the prayer for dew; in this post you'll find an English-language variation on that prayer, intended for community use as a responsive reading.
Give us dew to favor Your earth;
sweeten the land in which we live with dew.
Strengthen us with plenty, with grain and wine:
sheaves and vines sustained by dew.
Bring wholeness to the Holy City and to all who love her
as flowers are renewed by dew.
You have said "I will be like dew to Israel;"1
may Your mercy well up in us like the dew.
Let the proud and beautiful fruits of our harvest
be sustained and graced with dew.
Open our hearts; make us into open vessels
to receive the spiritual gifts of dew.
May a light shine forth from darkness to draw us to You,
as a root finds water from dew.
We are the people who followed You through the desert
as sheep follow a trusted shepherd; favor us with dew.
You are our God, Who causes the wind to blow and the dew to fall.2
For blessing and not for curse. Amen.
For life and not for death. Amen.
For plenty and not for lack. Amen.
