HaShem, Open Our Eyes

Forgive us Hashem, please Hashem we beg You, for we refuse to cherish the Land that You desire. Who are we when compared to those brave men who settled in the land in the past generations, we are like worms without strength, we are weak in our minds. We say one thing and mean the other, we who recite the prayers which exalt the land constantly and yet refuse to go live there. We say Next Year in Yerushalaim and yet we choose to remain in impure Lands. Hashem, please give us strength to break the lust for money which holds us back from going up to Eretz Israel, for it is known before You, that material comfort is the main reason why we do not come closer to You in the Land of the living.

We are sorry Hashem, You must feel betrayed by our behavior, please Hashem be patient; Do it for Your sake and not for us.

Oh Hashem, the Land is ready, we have no problems with governments forbidding our entrance to the Land, as used to be the case before, moreover now we have a government that helps us settle in the Land You chose to give us, and yet Hashem we still choose to dwell in the Lands of our enemies. Waiting, just waiting for the next pogrom, for the next confiscation of our assets. How blind we are.

Hashem please have compassion on us, and even though we have no merits, please Hashem open our hearts to the Love of Eretz Israel so that we may go live there. That we may go there through compassion and not becasue of death and persecution, G-d forbid

Open our eyes Hashem, that we may see clearly that America is not our Land, Europe is not our Land, open our eyes that we may feel the impurity in which we are immersed. Remove us from the sin of the spies who despised the Land. Forgive us for having heard their evil counsel, and having cried for no reason (That night of Tisha Be Av). Please Hashem let us repair what we did to the Shechina (Ha Aretz) when we complained about her.

We don't want to be in the desert anymore. We want to enter the Land. But we need Your help, in order to break our desires. Let us Hashem follow Your Torah and not our own wishes, for Your Torah can only be properly fulfilled in Eretz Israel.

Please Hashem listen to our supplications, because You listen to the Tefillah of everyone who desires to fulfill Your Torah.





והיה השם למלך על כל הארץ, ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד - ושמו אחד ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds אין עוד מלבדו
