El Maleh Raḥamim — Compassionate God,
We pray not to wipe out haters
but to banish hatred.
Not to destroy sinners
but to lessen sin.
Our prayers are not for a perfect world
but a better one
where parents are not bereaved
by the savagery of sudden attacks
or children orphaned by blades
glinting in a noonday sun.
Help us dear God,
to have the courage to remain strong,
to stand fast.
Spread Your light on the dark hearts
of the slayers
And Your comfort to the bereaved hearts
of families of the slain.
Let calm return Your city Jerusalem,
and to Israel, Your blessed land.
We grieve with those wounded in body and spirit,
pray for the fortitude of our sisters and brothers,
and ask You to awaken the world to our struggle
and help us bring peace.

This prayer by Rabbi David Wolpe was first shared via his Facebook page in the aftermath of the war begun by Hamas on Shemini Atseret 5784.
