Prayer Following Massacre in Jerusalem Shul - Yael Unterman

jshulattackHashem - please open the eyes and hearts of our neighbours in this land to make good choices instead of evil ones, to desire peaceful solutions in place of violence, to feel love instead of hate, choose life over death. We know from the story of Jonah that you want all people's hearts to turn back to You, so help and guide them to do so with strong, good leaders who can effect the change that is needed. We have seen it happen in some individuals; please let it increase, because it is so badly needed. Help us to channel our own anger, hate and fear into positive and constructive action, to make good choices ourselves; and guide our leaders too to do so.
