Prayer for the IDF


I write you this at a critical time in the history of our beloved land of Israel. Our sons and brothers and fathers have entered Gaza to finished their holy work of protecting our families from the vicious terrorist attacks aimed at murdering our people, attacks that have gone on for eight long years and caused untold suffering to a generation of children who grew up under terrorist threats in Israel's Southern border. I ask all of you who receive this to say a prayer for our soldiers, that they may all return, every one of them please G-d, to the families that love them after completing their work to give security back to the people of Israel. May the only weeping be those of terrorists for themselves and their families. May it please G-d that those who bless us will be blessed, and those who curse us will be cursed.

Prayer for the IDF:

"He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob -- may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Forces, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our God, from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May the Almighty cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighters from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under our soldiers' sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is the Lord your God, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you. "

Now let us respond: Amen.
