Prayer for Gilad

Olah Chadasha came up with a great idea of a blogger prayer chain in which bloggers would compose a (brief) prayer (or copy prayers from other sources) to be said for the welfare of the kidnapped Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit. The prayer does not need to be denominational necessarily and any reader who would be so inclined to say a brief prayer on his behalf would have the ability to do so, even if on their own they would not. I am going to keep my prayer Jewish themed, as I am Jewish and my readership is Jewish.

I will keep it brief and I hope you, the reader, will take the moment to either say your own prayer, however brief it might be, or use what I suggest if you cannot think of your own.

Yehi Ratzon, it should be your will God, that Gilad should have the strength to withstand the pains and opressions of captivity in the hands of the enemy and that he should be re-united with his family and nation speedily and with minimum pain.
Please - Gilad, along with all the hostages of Israel; Jonathan Pollard, Ron Arad, Zachary Baumel, Yehuda Katz, Tzvi Feldman, and Guy Hever, should all be re-united with their families and peace should reign in the region and no more captives should be taken and no more pain should be caused. Amen.


  1. Amen, and thank you so much for doing this. You brought tears to my eyes.

  2. I did not think it was that moving, but your tears should be collected and counted by God and used for the merit of savinf Gilad.

  3. Though I'm a Christian, I prayed your prayer, and will continue praying for Gilad. Thank you so much for this great idea.

  4. Yaakova - thank you for adding your prayers. i hope all our prayers together will have some influence on the outcome for good.

    social - thanks

  5. thanks for stopping in Jameel. havent seen you here in a while.
