Praying by the Critically Wounded IDF Soldier
There are no words. This is so tragic, and we pray that the IDF soldier, 21-year-old Staff Sgt. Barel Hadaria Shmueli, will live and be healthy. Barel was just doing his duty of protecting the state of Israel. He is an innocent young man.
Barel was shot at the Gaza border on Saturday by a terrorist who somehow got close enough to shoot him at point-blank range. He is now in a life-threatening state and needs our prayers.
“My son is fighting for his life, his blood, his breath, for nothing,” Nitza Shmueli, the mother of 21-year-old Border Police officer Barel Hadaria Shmueli, told 103 FM Radio on Monday morning. “The country isn’t worth it, and I’m not getting any answers. A 12-year-old terrorist shoots him point blank, and all this knowing that our fighters were not allowed to shoot and respond. Why did they send my son? Why? I want an answer.”
“He is not well. We need a lot of prayers, I’m asking and begging people to pray that our Barel will get back on his feet, will return to his family, to life,” said Nitza.
“I ask only that he lives, no more than that,” the father, Yossi, said. “Let all the people of Israel pray for his recovery.”
When tragedy strikes, the nation of Israel prays. This video heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time to see members of Barel’s unit come and pray by his hospital bedside. Israel must do everything it can physically to defend itself, but we cannot do anything without prayer and turning to G-d. The doctors must do everything they can to save this 21 year old, innocent soldier’s life, but they will not be successful without G-d. We must pray to G-d that He gives the doctors the abilities to save Barel Shmueli so that Barel can live to see his friends and family again; so that he can live to build a family of his own.
May Israel and the world know of no more tragedy and pain.
