First is from D’varim (Deuteronomy) 29:9–30:20 called Nitzavim meaning “Standing” with the Halftarah reading from Isaiah 61:10–63:9. The reading from the Writings in the Messiah for Nitzavim is Romans 10:1-13.

May it be Your will, O L-rd our G-d and G-d of our fathers, to cause us to walk in the way of Your Torah and to cleave to Your precepts. Let us not fall into the power of sin, transgression or iniquity, nor succumb to temptations or shame. Let not the sinful inclination hold sway over us. Keep us far from the influence of wicked men and corrupt companions. Make us cleave to our good inclination and to perform good deeds. O bend our will to Your service, and grant us this day and every day, grace, kindness and mercy, both in Your sight and in the sight of all men, and bestow Your loving kindness upon us.
