Prayers for Our Veterans

rabbis header shabbatPrayer for Veterans Day

by Aliza Berger

Ribono shel olam (Master of the Universe),

We who have dedicated our lives to protecting this great country,

who have used our strength and our wisdom to safeguard the ideals of freedom and democracy,

we ask for Your presence now.


Watch over us, guide us, teach us, and inspire us. Remind us that we are stronger together.


May we, as veterans of this great nation, be blessed with clarity of purpose. Our military missions are complete. But we continue to serve the best interests of our beloved country.


Lord, we know that some of our brothers and sisters are in need of healing. Please bless them. Heal them. Give them strength. 

Please bless our medical professionals too with the wisdom to find treatments and cures that will help our veterans to come home and live in peace.


Adonai tzuri v’goali, Lord, You are our Rock and our Redeemer. Thank you for your blessings each and every day and for empowering us to be a blessing unto these United States of America.

God of compassion,

God of dignity and strength,

Watch over the veterans of the United States

In recognition of their loyal service to our nation.

Bless them with wholeness and love.

Shelter them.

Heal their wounds,

Comfort their hearts.

Grant them peace.

God of justice and truth,

Rock of our lives,

Bless our veterans,

These men and women of courage and valor,

With a deep and abiding understanding

Of our profound gratitude.

Protect them and their families from loneliness and want.

Grant them lives of joy and bounty.

May their dedication and honor

Be remembered as a blessing

From generation to generation.


Blessed are You,

Protector and Redeemer,

Our Shield and our Stronghold.
