PRAYER FOR SOLDIERS
IN IRAQ WAR
by Orthodox Union of Rabbis

Almighty G-d on High, omnipotent King, look down from Your
Sanctified Abode, and bless the valiant soldiers of the Coalition
Forces who risk their lives to protect the welfare of all Your creation.

Benevolent G-d, be their shelter and fortress, and to not allow
them to falter.  May harmony dwell in their ranks, victory in their
battalion.  Fill their hearts with faith and courage to thwart
the evil schemes of our enemies and to abolish every rule of evil.

Protect them on land, in the air and in the sea, and destroy their
adversaries.  Guide them in peace, lead them toward peace, and
return them speedily to their families alive and unharmed.

Grant us true peace in fulfillment of the prophecy:  "Nation shall not
lift up sword against another nation, nor shall they learn war any more."

Let all the inhabitants of the world know that Dominion is Yours,
and Your Name inspires awe upon all that You have created.
May this be Your will, and let us say, Amen.
