Prayer for the Welfare and Return of Israel’s Captured and Missing

Prayer for the Welfare and Return of Israel’s Captured and Missing from Among our Sisters and Brothers 
by The Rabbinical Assembly of Israel and the Masorti Israel.

God of Israel, our Rock, and our Redeemer,
God of Mercy, of Compassion,
we pray, we plead that you return these precious and beloved
people […] the captured in the missing, who have cruelly and
heartlessly been torn from their homes and carried off to our
enemy’s territory.

We are terrified contemplating their fate and horrified at the
thought of what the missing and the captured are suffering
right now […] They lay beyond our reach and our
capacity to save them.

And so we please before You:
Father of Mercy, be at their side, support them, protect them
and quickly bring them back to the embrace of their families
and all who love them as You have declared:
“Thus says the Lord; Behold, I will restore the captives of
Jacob’s tents, and have mercy on their dwelling places…”
[Jeremiah 30:18)

We beseech you, Adonay, quickly fulfill Your word: “Here, I
am with you, I will watch over you wherever you go and will
bring you back to this land, indeed I will not leave you until I
have done what I have said to you.” [Genesis 28:15]
