אֱלֹהֵינוּ
מַתִּיר הָאֲסוּרִים,
מִשְׂגָּב לַדָּךְ,
מִשְׂגָּב לְעִתּוֹת בַּצָּרָה (תהלים ט:י)
שְׁלַח, הַצָּלָה שְׁלֵמָה וּפִדְיוֹן גָּמוּר
לַנְּתוּנִים בִּשְׁבִי אוֹיֵב:
[…].
Our God,
the One who raised Joseph up from the pit,
be “a refuge for the oppressed,
a refuge in times of trouble.” (Psalms 9:10) 
Send complete rescue and full redemption
to those held captive by the enemy:
[when possible, add names here].
חַזְּקִי רוּחָם, הָבִיאִי לָהֶם אֶת תְּפִלָּתֵנוּ
לְשָׁמְרָם מֵרַע.
Strengthen their spirit and bring them our prayers
that they be protected from all harm.  
תְּנִי בִּינָה בְּלֵב אוֹיֵב
לַהֲשִׁיבָם בִּשְׁלֵמוּת גּוּף וְנֶפֶשׁ.
Implant understanding in the heart of the enemy
that they may return the captives in wholeness of body and spirit.  
תְּנִי תְּבוּנָה בְּלוֹחֲמֵי צַהַ״ל
לְחַלְּצָם בְּלֹא אִבּוּד נְפָשׁוֹת.
Grant wisdom to the Israel Defense Forces
that they may secure freedom for the captives without loss of life. 
תֵּן לְכָל בְּנֵי וּבְנוֹת אַבְרָהָם, שָׂרָה וְהַגֵּר
אֶת עֹז הָרוּחַ וְאֹמֶץ הַלֵּב
לְהַתִּיר כִּבְלִי שֶׁבִי
וְלִחְיוֹת חַיֵּי חֵרוּת.
Grant strength of spirit and courage of heart
to all the sons and daughters of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar
to release bonds of captivity
and allow us all to live in freedom.  
יִקְרָאֵנִי
וְאֶעֱנֵהוּ עִמּוֹ
אָנֹכִי בְצָרָה
אֲחַלְּצֵהוּ וַאֲכַבְּדֵהוּ (תהלים צא:טו)
וְנֹאמַר, אָמֵן.
“They shall call upon Me,
and I will answer them;
I will be with them in distress;
I will rescue them, and honor them.” (after Psalms 91:15)
And we say Amen.

This prayer for the liberation of abducted Israeli citizens and military personnel was offered by Rabbi Ofer Sabath Beit Halachmi in response to the war initiated by Hamas from Gaza on Shemini Atseret 5784. The English translation was prepared by Rabbi Dr. Rachel Sabath Beit Halachmi.
