Kaddish Hebrew

בְּעָלְמָא דִּי בְרָא כִרְעוּתֵהּ. וְיַמְלִיךְ מַלְכוּתֵהּ, בְּחַיֵּיכוֹן וּבְיוֹמֵיכוֹן וּבְחַיֵּי דְכָל בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל, בַּעֲגָלָא וּבִזְמַן קָרִיב. וְאִמְרוּ: אָמֵן.
(אָמֵן. יְהֵא שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא מְבָרַךְ לְעָלַם וּלְעָלְמֵי עָלְמַיָּא.)

יְהֵא שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא מְבָרַךְ לְעָלַם וּלְעָלְמֵי עָלְמַיָּא.

יִתְבָּרַךְ וְיִשְׁתַּבַּח וְיִתְפָּאַר וְיִתְרוֹמַם וְיִתְנַשֵּׂא וְיִתְהַדָּר וְיִתְעַלֶּה וְיִתְהַלָּל שְׁמֵהּ דְּקֻדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא
(בְּרִיךְ הוּא)

לְעֵלָּא מִן כָּל בִּרְכָתָא וְשִׁרָתָא תֻּשְׁבְּחָתָא וְנֶחֱמָתָא, דַּאֲמִירָן בְּעָלְמָא. וְאִמְרוּ: אָמֵן.

 יְהֵא שְׁלָמָא רַבָּא מִן שְׁמַיָּא, וְחַיִּים עָלֵינוּ וְעַל כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל. וְאִמְרוּ: אָמֵן.

עֹשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם בִּמְרוֹמָיו, הוּא יַעֲשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם עָלֵינוּ, וְעַל כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל. וְאִמְרוּ: אָמֵן.

Kel Maleh Rachamim

אְל מָלֵא רַחֲמִים, שׁוֹכֵן בַּמְּרוֹמִים, הַמְצֵא מְנוּחָה נְכוֹנָה עַל כַּנְפֵי הַשְּׁכִינָה, בְּמַעֲלוֹת קְדוֹשִׁים וּטְהוֹרִים כְּזֹהַר הָרָקִיעַ מַזְהִירִים,

אֶת נִשְׁמַת אַחֵינוּ ואַחָיוֹתֵינוּ אַנשֵׁי הַחַיִל אַשֶׁר הֶעֶרוּ לַמָוֶת נַפְשָׁם בְּעַד הַגָנַת אַרְצָם,

בַּעֲבוּר שֶׁכָל הַקָהָל הַזֶה מִתְפַּלֵל בְּעַד הַזְכָּרַת נִשְׁמָתֵיהֶם, בְּגַן עֵדֶן תְּהֵא מְנוּחָתָם, לָכֵן בַּעַל הָרַחֲמִים יַסְתִּירֵם בְּסֵתֶר כְּנָפָיו לְעוֹלָמִים, וְיִצְרוֹר בִּצְרוֹר הַחַיִּים אֶת נִשְׁמָתָם, יהוה הוּא נַחֲלָתָם, וְיָנוּחוּ בְּשָׁלוֹם עַל מִשְׁכָּבָם, וְנֹאמַר: אָמֵן


O L-rd who is full of compassion who dwells on high, grant perfect rest on the wings of Your Divine Presence, in the exalted places among the holy courageous and pure, who shine as the brightness of the firmament.

To the souls of our brothers and sisters of the Australian Defence Force and other Allied Forces who fell in defence of their countries, in the pursuit of justice, truth and democracy for all mankind, we beseech You, O L-rd of compassion, shelter them forever more in the cover of Your wings. May their souls be bound in the bond of eternal life. The L-rd is their inheritance, may they rest in peace. And let us say: Amen.


Prayer for the Royal Family

You who gives power and strength to kings and governments, whose kingdom is an everlasting one, may You bless our Sovereign Lady, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and all the Royal Family.

Preserve our Queen in life, guard her and deliver her from all trouble and sorrow. Put a spirit of wisdom and understanding into her heart and into the hearts of all her counsellors.

May the Supreme King of Kings bless and preserve the Governor-General, the Federal Government of Australia and the State Government of Victoria.

Grant them wisdom and inspiration to administer the law and justice for the well-being of the Commonwealth and the happiness of all.

In Her Majesty the Queen’s days and ours, may the Heavenly Father spread the tabernacle of peace over all the dwellers on earth.

And let us say Amen.


Prayer for Australia

Bless, oh God, our country of Australia and all its inhabitants.

Let us have dreams in this land of long dreams
Let the hot winds from the desert fire our imagination
Let the red soil of the plains keep us rooted to the things that matter.
Let the waters of our oceans and lakes flow into our hearts giving us depth and understanding.
Let us remember the original inhabitants of these lingering song lines.

May we stand as strong and as mighty as our mountains and be as gentle as our places of quiet beauty.
May Your spirit range across our great spaces touching the contours of our many different souls.
May Your spirit vitalise this great land, may it enter the hearts of our government and leaders.

Guide them with wisdom, compassion and integrity. Protect the members of the Australian Defence Force in all their endeavours at home and overseas. Implant in our hearts a spirit of love and unity that we may work and live together in harmony and fellowship for the well-being of this society that we are building together.

Let our compassion be like the embracing coastlines of our singular continent and may peace move slowly across this ancient and enduring land.

And let us say Amen.

Remembrance Day Prayer For Adf Members And Veterans

Lord of the Universe:

At this moment of remembrance, we thank You for the courage and loyalty of all who gave so much for their country when the call came to go to war. We acknowledge the spirit of service and sacrifice shown by Australians during wartime and whenever our nation needed to stand up for justice, democracy and freedom.

We ask you to bless the members of the Australian Defence Force, especially mindful of those who are serving outside Australia. We recognise their patriotism and courage. Keep them from harm and danger, and may they return home in safety. We remember the deep and lasting contribution of our veterans and ask you to continue to guide and protect them and their families.
Oh God who binds up the wounds of those who suffer, protect the victims of war and terrorism, those whose bodies have been injured and those suffering from post-traumatic stress. Give them healing of body, mind and soul.

May the swords of war and violence soon be turned into ploughshares of peace, when nation shall not lift up the sword against nation nor learn war any more.

Oseh Shalom Bimromav. May peace bring its blessings everywhere in the world, and let us say: Amen
