Rebbe Nachman's Prayer for Peace

Rebbe Nachman's Prayer for Peace
Lord of Peace, Divine Ruler, to whom peace belongs! Master of Peace, Creator of all things!May it be thy will to put an end to war and bloodshed on earth, and to spread a great and wonderful peace over the whole world, so that nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.Help us and save us all, and let us cling tightly to the virtue of peace.
Let there be a truly great peace between every person and their fellow, and between husband and wife, and let there be no discord between people even in their hearts.Let us never shame any person on earth, great or small. May it be granted unto us to fulfill Thy Commandment to "Love thy neighbor as thyself," with all our hearts and souls and bodies and possessions.And let it come to pass in our time as it is written, "And I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down and none shall make you afraid. I will drive the wild beasts from the land, and neither shall the sword go through your land.God who is peace, bless us with peace !!!(Attributed to Rabbi Nachman ben Feiga of Breslov, 1773-1810)
Rebbe Nachman also recommended reciting the following Psalms as a General Remedy for all kinds of problems, grief, and needs:16--32--41--42--59--77--90--105--137--150They are traditionally recited as one long prayer service without interruptions. This is known as the Tikkun K'lali (General Remedy) and is used by many Breslover Hasidim and others. Non-Jews may use it too, since the Psalms are open to everyone. The General Remedy may be recited anywhere, i.e., at home, in synagogue, at a gravesite, on the road, etc. for any reason that needs prayer.
Please Pray for Yerushalayim and do Teshuva today!
