Prayer for the Bereaved of Norway

תפילה לאור האסון בנרבגיה

אֱלֹהֵי הָרוּחוֹת לְכָל בָּשָׂר, שַׁלֵּם בְּרַחֲמֶיךָ הָרַבִּים נִחוּמִים לַמִּשְׁפָּחוֹת הַשַּׁכּוּלוֹת וְהַדּוֹאֲבוֹת עַל מוֹת בְּנֵיהֶן וּבְנוֹתֵיהֶן אֲשֶׁר נִטְבְּחוּ בְּדַם קַר בַּמַּמְלָכָה הַצְּפוֹנִית עַל יְדֵי רוֹצֵחַ שֶׁאָבְדּוּ מִמֶּנוּ צֶלֶם אֱלֹהִים וְאַהֲבַת חֶסֶד. שָׂא עֵינֶיךָ בְּאַהֲבָה וּבְחֶמְלָה לָאָבוֹת הַמְּבַכִּים אֶת בְּנֵיהֶם וְלָאִמָּהוֹת הָאֲבֵלוֹת עַל בְּנוֹתֵיהֶן אֲשֶׁר נִקְטְלוּ בִּדְמֵי חַיֵּיהֶם. טַע בְּלִבֵּנוּ וּבְלֵב כָּל הָעַמִּים אֵת אֲשֶׁר לִמַּדְּתָּ אֶת אֵלִיָה הַנָּבִיא בְּחוֹרֵב: לֹא בָּרוּחַ ה' וְלֹא בָּרַעַשׁ ה' וְלֹא בָּאֵשׁ ה' אֶלָּא בְּקוֹל דְּמָמָה דַּקָּה שֶׁל אַהֲבַת הַבְּרִיוֹת וְהַצְנֵעַ לֶכֶת לְפָנֶיךָ. וְכֵן יְהִי רָצוֹן וְנֹאמַר אָמֵן. י

Source of the spirit of all flesh, in Your great mercy grant comfort to those families, bereaved and in anguish, by the death of their sons and daughters who were slaughtered in cold blood in the Northern Kingdom by a murderer who had lost the divine image within him and all human compassion. Look with love and tenderness on fathers mourning their sons and mothers bereaved of their daughters who were mowed down in the prime of their life. Plant in our hearts and in the hearts of all peoples that which You taught the prophet Elijah on Mount Horeb: The power of God is not to be found in storms, in earthquakes or in infernos, but in the soft sound of silence that is the love of all other people seeking only to lead a life of modesty. And may this be His will. Amen.
