PRAYER FOR THE WELL-BEING
OF THE ISRAEL DEFENSE FORCES
Jewish Virtual Library
May He Who blessed our forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, bless the soldiers
of the Israel Defense Forces, who stand watch over our land and the cities of our
L-rd, from the Labanese border to the desert of Egypt and from the great sea to the
verge of the wilderness, on land, in the air, and at sea.  May G-d strike down before
them our enemies who rise against us.  May the Holy One save and spare our soldiers from all forms of woe and distress; of affliction and illness, and may He invest their every action with blessing and success.  May He vanquish by their means those who hate us, and may He  adorn them with a crown of deliverance and a mantle of victory.  Thus may the verse be fulfilled:  "For it is the L-rd your G-d Who marches with you
to do battle for you against your enemy, to bring you victory." 
Now let us respond.  "Amen."
