What are the top three most recited/used verses/supplications (from or not from Torah) in Jewish prayers? Not asking about the single most used one only.

I think, if a passage or a sentence is repeated again and again in prayers, it reflects the relation between G_d and man according to Judaism. That's why I am asking.

Please provide English translations also. This question is from a non-Jew.

  • Divrei Hayamim A 16:35 is a big one, especially if you use nusach S'farad.

    Gulshan, unfortunately I think this is not constructive. As it currently stands, anyway. What exactly do you mean "[n]ot ... the single most used one only"? How many do you want? Are you asking for us to list all of our prayers/verses/supplications and rank them in order of most to least used?

  • What @SethJ said. Moreover, since you're asking also about those not from the Torah, it's unclear how long a verse/supplication you seek. (For example, would "Blessed art thou" suffice?)

  • @SethJ and msh210 Would my question be opened if I ask for the single most Torah verse only? Actually I do not know much, thus the confusion.

  • @Gulshan, maybe if you explain more about what you are interested in using the information for, either in a comment here or in the question, people can help you sharpen the question such that it can garner answers that will be helpful.

I'm not exactly sure. The amidah might be the most recited and repeated prayer during the services on any day.
