Yihi Ratzon Milfanecha, our God and God of our ancestors, as we gather on another tragic day of violence in Israel, we pray for peace among those who dwell in her land. May you shelter the land with protection so that our brothers can emerge from their bomb shelters. May you shower the land with love and light so that the barrage of rockets and bombs ceases forever. We pray, O God, that you remove hatred from the hearts of anyone who feels hate and anyone who wants only complete destruction. Imbue their hearts instead with compassion, tolerance and understanding. Let our love for our neighbors and the stranger guide us towards everlasting peace. We ask for healing for those who have been injured in body, soul and spirit and safety for those who serve Israel proudly and enter wars vicious path. May our children and our children’s children grow up knowing only peace.
