Prayer for Missing Israeli Soldiers

Hebrew | English | Transliterated

MIA Prayer- Hebrew

English

He who blessed our ancestors Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; Joseph, Moses, Aaron, David and Solomon; may He bless, preserve and protect the captive and missing soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces, including:

May He rescue them from captivity and speedily restore them in peace, in the merit of the prayers of this holy assemblage who pray for them.

May the Holy One, Blessed Be He, show them mercy, increase their strength, remove their pain and send them a recovery of body and spirit; may He return them to the bosom of their families [On the Sabbath add: the Shabbat prohibits us from crying out, may salvation come speedily,] swiftly and soon.

Now let us respond: Amen.
