Prayer for Israeli Soldiers

Prayer for the Israeli Soldiers

May the Holy One who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and our foremothers Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah bless the soldiers of every faith enrolled in the Israel Defence Forces, who stand guard over our land and our cities, from the border of Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea. May the Holy One preserve and rescue them from every trouble, distress, plague, and illness, and may they be blessed with success in their every endeavour. May the Holy One grant them salvation and crown them with victory; and may the holy work of rebuilding in peace begin soon, to fulfil in our days the prophetic vision  לֹא־יִשָּׂ֨א ג֤וֹי אֶל־גּוֹי֙ חֶ֔רֶב וְלֹֽא־יִלְמְד֥וּ ע֖וֹד מִלְחָמָֽה  “Nation shall not take up sword against nation; they shall never again know war”  [Isaiah 2:4].And let us say Amen.  Written by Rabbi Dr Andrea Zanardo
