The Weapon is Prayer

Life makes warriors of us all. To emerge the victors, we must arm ourselves with the most potent of weapons. That weapon is prayer.

-----Rebbe Nachman of Breslov

As you probably know by now, two young Israelis have been abducted by Palestinians within the last few days. One, Eliahu Ashrei, of blessed memory, was found murdered, his young life and potential cut short far too soon (may G-d avenge his blood!). The other, Gilead Shalit, is still believed to be alive.

Israeli troops have entered Gaza in an operation called "Summer Rain", but seem to have done little other than arrest a number of Palestinian government officials. Some sources even suggest that the Israeli government is under pressure from the US to not strike at targets in Gaza, all while rockets continue to rain on Sderot.

At times like these, we need to pull out the most powerful weapon we have: Prayer. Please pray for the safety of Gilead ben Aviva, pray that rockets stop falling on Sderot, and pray that Olmert and his gang finally get the testicular fortitude needed to keep the people of Israel safe.

Even if prayer is not part of your regular practice, please just take 10 minutes today to beg and plead with Hashem to set things right. Prayer is our most powerful weapon, but it requires that we use it to see results.

Are you kidding me? You really have to ask? Here is an example of what goes through the head of a man like Olmert.

Yasher koach, FB.

If anyone needs brachos right now, my sister is in Israel and she'll be visiting the Kotel. I'm sure she would be happy to have you in mind.
