The Psalms teach:
I rejoiced in my heart when they
said to me, let us go to Adonai’s House. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem;
those who love you shall prosper. I will now say, peace be within you… I will
seek your good.
Our Siddur/Prayerbook, Mishkan
T’filah, includes this prayer:
- O Heavenly One, Protector and Redeemer of Israel, bless the State of
Israel which marks the dawning of hope for all who seek peace. Shield it
beneath the wings of your love; spread over it the canopy of Your peace; send
Your light and truth to all who lead and advise, guiding them with Your good
counsel. Establish peace in the land and fullness of joy for all who
dwell there. Amen.
At this anxious time in the homeland
of the Jewish People, may our thoughts and prayers be with its citizens.
