Prayer for Safe Return of Kidnapped Israelis

The Rabbinical Assembly released the following prayer (along with this statement), written by Rabbi Tamar Elad Appelbaum and translated by Rabbi Peretz Rodman, for the safe return of the missing students.

God of Israel,
Beneficent sovereign of all Creation,
enable us now
to have true faith
and to pray and to call out to You
with plea after plea,
so that our cry might rise
to the very Gates of Mercy,
to Mercy itself.
And all reality shall be turned around
so that relief, rescue, and life
may be the lot of those young men,
Ya’akov Naftali ben Rahel (Frenkel),
Gil-ad Micha’el ben Bat-Galim (Shaar)
and Eyal ben Iris Teshura (Yifrach).
Act on their behalf, Lord,
take up their cause without delay,
and may You grant them life and blessing forevermore.      
So may it be Your will,
and let us say: Amen.

אֵל אֱלֹהֵי יִשְֹרָאֵל
מֶלֶךְ ֹשֶרַחֲמָיו עַל כָּל מַעֲשָֹיו
תֵּן בָּנוּ בָּעֵת הַזֹּאת
ֹֹשֶתִּהְיֶה בָנוּ מִדַּת אֱמוּנָה
וְנִתְפַּלֵּל וְנִתְחַנֵּן אַחֲרֶיךָ
,תְּחִנָּה אַחַר תְּחִנָּה
כְּדֵי ֹשֶתַּעֲלֶה ֹשַוְעָתֵנוּ
וְתָבֹא עַד מְקוֹם ֹשַעַר הַחֶסֶד
.עַד נְקֻדַּת הַחֶסֶד
וּתְהַפֵּך אֶת הַכֹּל לְמַעַן יָבֹאוּ
רֶוַח וְהַצָּלָה וְחַיִּים לַנְּעַרִים
(יַעֲקֹב נַפְתָּלִי בֶּן רָחֵל (פְרֶנְקֶל
(גִּיל-עַד מִיכָאֵל בֶּן בַּת גַּלִים (ֹשַעַאר
.(אֶיָל בֶּן אִירִיס תֹּשוּרָה (יִפְרָח
עֲשֵֹה לְמַעַנָם אֱלֹהֵינוּ
עֲשֵֹה וְאַל תְאַחֵר
וְהוֹשִיעֵם אֱלֹהֵי יִֹשְעֵנוּ
.וְאַתָּה תַּנְחִילֵם חַיִּים וּבְרָכָה עַד הָעוֹלָם
.וְכֵן יְהִי רָצוֹן וְנֹאמַר אָמֵן
