Listen to This Stunning Prayer for the IDF

by Leah Rosenberg

The IDF is one of the best armies in the world. Yes, they are trained well. But the secret to their success is that G-d protects them.

Praying for the IDF

The only way that the IDF can protect Israel properly is if G-d protects the IDF. And we have to do our part by praying. We have to ask G-d to keep the soldiers of the IDF safe and for them to be successful in their endeavours.

There are different ways to pray. And sometimes, we pray through song. This song is just that – a prayer. The words are beautiful.

We may not all have the ability to physically fight and serve in the IDF, but we all have the ability to pray and speak to G-d.

Translation of the lyrics:

Master of All Worlds, the King to whom peace belongs, On this day on which we escort our child to serve the Jewish People and All Who Dwell In Israel through army service, we throw before You our pleas that You will spread Your canopy of peace upon him/ her and upon all soldiers of the IDF. Grant them the energy, agility, and joy to fulfill the commandment, “the help of Israel from the hands of enemies,” and give them courage, insight, and strength. Protect them from all danger or peril, injury or obstacle, and return them to their homes and families safe and whole, in body and in spirit, and through them may the verse be fulfilled: “It is G-d who girds me with valor, who makes my path perfect.” And may it be manifest through our son/daughter and through all of the IDF: ”G-d will protect you from all evil, He will protect your being; G-d will protect your comings and goings from now through eternity”. Amen.
