|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."
