Avinu SheBashamayim: A Lyric Prayer for Peace

May this be a country of peace, with peace for all who live here, whether citizen or guest: whether Jew, Christian, Mulim, or Druze; whether European, African, Arab, or Asian.

Our Father our father who is in heaven
Rock and Redeemer of the people Israel;
Bless the State of Israel, with its promise of redemption.
Shield it with Your love; spread over it the shelter of Your peace.

Our Father our father who is in heaven
Rock and Redeemer of the people Israel;
Send your light and your truth
To its leaders, its ministers, its advisors,
Establish them with good council before you.

Our Father our father who is in heaven
Rock and Redeemer of the people Israel;
Strengthen the hands of those who defend our Holy Land.
Deliver them; crown them with salvation and victory.
Bless the land with peace, and everyone who lives there with lasting joy.

And let us say: Amen.
As sung by the IDF Chief Cantor.
