What does God pray?

In the Talmud, God prays only once.

“What does God pray?” It asks.

Rabbi Zutra ben Tobi gives the answer. He taught that when God prays, he says:

“May it be My will that My mercy may suppress My anger, and that My mercy may prevail over My [other] attributes, so that I may deal with My children in the attribute of mercy and, on their behalf, stop short of the limit of strict justice.” (Berakhot 7a)
