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. – WAF May 7 '13 at 18:48

    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? – Seth J May 7 '13 at 18:48
  • 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?) – msh210 May 7 '13 at 19:41
  • @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 May 7 '13 at 23:58
  • @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. – Isaac Moses May 8 '13 at 1:33

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