      Poetry Submission: Prayer for the Fighters of Israel

      Prayer for the Fighters and Soldiers of Israel
      by Edward Francisco Villa

      Know that you are not alone
      While on the battle field
      When under the threat of death
      Even if you are held captive
      Know that your fate lies with your G-d and your people
      For He is your Strength
      Hope and Comfort.
      Remember every morning
      Your creator
      and at night
      His Faithfulness
      Mighty and Strong
      Courageous and Loyal
      until the very end
      That He is your Father
      that will love you and keep you until the end.
      Read and meditate
      on His Torah
      Your Promise given unto you
      Read the Psalms 
      of His beloved David
      whom He forgave and always loved
      Remember G-d's Laws
      Given unto you by His Servant Moshe
      Who interceded on your behalf and only saw the land...
      Even when the enemies of Israel rejoice and jeer
      you have The Almighty who loves you  dear...
      When the world clamors for you to give up on your promise of life on The Land
      You have your Father in Heaven that knows and does not keep His Love from you.
      When a comrade falls
      never forget his love for you and his people
      Remember him in all the good he has done for you and do for him
      valantly and courageously
      in remembrance of his memory.
      The Eternal of Yakkov is always with you
      In Brotherhood shall you dwell
      always remember  in faith and trust
      your G-d who shall never relent in His love nor forget you,
      Sons and Daughters of Israel
      Know that you have one another
      and that in your Father you shall always live.
