Lord,
we pray to Thee on behalf
of the whole house of Israel
scattered over the face of the globe,
destined, in every condition of their existence,
to endure many a sharp trial of their faith.
We beseech Thee so
to aid and inspire them
that neither in prosperity nor in adversity
they be untrue to their mission;
and even as Thou hast never deserted Thy people
for Thy great name’s sake,
so may they be ever faithful in their calling,
showing forth Thy glory and Thy goodness
among the nations,
testifying by their lives
to the great and holy truths
with which Thou hast entrusted them,
and proving that happy is the people
whose God is the Lord.
Amen.

This prayer for the wellbeing of the Jewish people first appears in A Selection of Prayers, Psalms, and Other Scriptural Passages, and Hymns for Use at the Services of the Jewish Religious Union (1902), where it is №6 on page 6. (In the revised 1903 edition of the prayerbook, it is №19 on page 19.) The authorship of the prayer is nowhere indicated, but it seems likely to me that it was made by either Lily Montagu, the founder of the Jewish Religious Union, or Claude Montefiore (its president). –Aharon Varady
