Annapolis - Part 2

In our parsha (Vayishlach) we read how Yaakov prepared for a threatening adversary with unknown intentions in three methods: Prayer, Diplomacy, War.

1.Olmert is doing the diplomacy.
2. War: I sincerely hope that the army is prepared.
3. I guess that I just have to pray!

Whether one is left-wing or right-wing there is what to pray for. We don't need to tell God what the outcome should be. But we can pray that it be the best possible result for the Jewish People.

אָבִינוּ שֶׁבַּשָּׁמַיִם, צוּר יִשְׂרָאֵל וְגוֹאֲלוֹ, בָּרֵךְ אֶת מְדִינַת יִשְׂרָאֵל ...הָגֵן עָלֶיהָ בְּאֶבְרַת חַסְדֶּךָ וּפְרֹשׂ עָלֶיהָ סֻכַּת שְׁלוֹמֶךָ וּשְׁלַח אוֹרְךָ וַאֲמִתְּךָ לְרָאשֶׁיהָ, שָׂרֶיה, וְיוֹעֲצֶיהָ וְתַקְּנֵם בְּעֵצָה טוֹבָה מִלְּפָנֶיךָ.
