The following announcement and prayer have been distributed throughout Israel.
The original Hebrew is available at: www.hebron.com/gkprayer.htm
|This is a translation of a short letter written by Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu:
On Sunday a referendum is due to take place of all Likud members, dealing with our faith and security in
G-D, and dealing with our grasp of Eretz Yisrael [the land and people of Israel]. We can sense that "Without G-D being with us, our lives would be nothing," therefore we turn to all those active to pray for the success of the referendum every hour that they can, when they are in need of strength and Divine assistance during their holy work.
We request that all teachers in all the schools and yeshivot spend time praying with their students, to streng-then the hearts of the voters, that they should vote with faith in G-D and with security in His Holy Name, with love. We pray also to strengthen the hearts of all those working with great dedication over the past few weeks, encouraging those who may be weak and hold up failing knees. May it be His Will that G-D should help us succeed.
The order of prayer: Those in schools and at home: Say the enclosed prayer anywhere and at any time. Also Psalms and selichot. And in particular, Psalm 119, according to the alef-bet. Reciting the verses of Eretz (alef, resh, tzadi) Eretz Yisrael (alef, resh tzadi - yod, shin, resh, alef, lamed) and Gush Katif (gimel, vov, shin, kuf, tet, yod, pe).
And may it be G-D's will to see our failings, will have mercy, and overcome our failings, and redeem us a
complete redemption quickly in our days.
The Rishon l' Tzion
Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, shita
(In schools children should say Psalms 83 and 142).
