A Prayer for Shoshana,

Shoshana I post this prayer for you before I turn in for the night. I hope that no harm has come to you and that you are being treated humanely in all affairs. Many women see you as brave, a prevailing force and yet they are saddened that you are where you are. I am as well. Today I thought about my first post to you. I wrote I couldn’t imagine what you felt for I wasn’t in your shoes. That is the truth. And yet, as a former soldier, I do know of your convictions and your steadfast disposition in the face of adversity. You are me eight years ago. Even now as I sit here, I am in thought about my tour in the Army. Mines is a spirit that even now would go over to Iraq to assist/give aid in whatever way I could. But I would not take up arms because of my beliefs. I do not see this war as justifiable, but I do support the young men and women who are there fighting this conflict. I pray that for you, Allah (swt) gives you respite and mercy and deems it that you return home. I pray for your family; I saw your Mom and Dad interviewed on the Today Show, I believe. They were strong in disposition and prayerful of your swift and safe return home. They feel blessed and say that having your daughter with them is a healing. They say you cook well. When I heard this, I smiled because I can cook a few ‘mean’ dishes myself. :0) I really hope you get to come home and soon. Maybe you will sit at your computer as I do so many nights, and with your parents hovering over your shoulder, and your little girl sitting on your lap, you will read this message, and contact me. Maybe we will plan to cook a few dishes for our families together. But until then, my heart is with you. My tears, though we are as women supposed to be self-sufficient/self-reliant find a path easily down my cheek. They may register sadness, but in truth they strengthen me. In that they do, I give this found strength to you as you face the ordeal of being captive and separated from those who pray for you, as well as your family and all who love you.

Allah (swt) be with you Shoshana

Your sister in faith,

Saffiya S. Musaaleh

Father I come to you in Jesus name. I pray that all powers and principalities that are influencing the hate, confusion, bloodshed and lack of human life behind terrorism and evil bow to your name as you said in Isaiah. I send you word to Iraq to enter the hearts of all Iraqi soldiers and Saddam supporters and bring the light of you love for man, so that they can treat the American and Allied POWs humanely, even if it is against the directives of their leaders. I pray for your saving grace for all our soldiers and all people. And I pray that you will give us victory in this war, so that your name will be glorified. We do not trust in our military strength, though we thank you for it, but we trust in you and to you we give all the glory for any success. In Jesus name.

Almight Creator
Father and Mother of us all.
Protect and guide all those who are prisoner of war in this conflict. May they feel Your prescence and know that You are with them. Inparticular when they feel most alone, when they must face the hatred of the others. Creator, I pray that they will know then, most of all, that You are with them. They are never alone. There is no place where You are not. There is nothing that is greater than You. Creator, I pray that we all experience Your prescence and feel guided to Your gentleness and compassion.

Dear Father In Heaven. Our father that gave his only son that we might attain everlasting life, protect these troops and POW's. They have descended into to darkness.

I pray that the power of this sentence comfort the prisoners of war, all our troops, and all their loved ones, "If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it." Amen

Dear God
There are things in this physical life we will never fully understand. We know that the fate and safety of these brave men and women are in your hands, and the hands of the universe. If it be your will, surround them with the light of your love and protection. Create for them a reality in which there is no pain or fear. Help them to focus on your love and the love of those who wait and pray for them so they remember that they are never alone. Allow there captures to see them as the sons and daughters of others and not as weapons of war. I know that our positive prayers have great strength- Permit the loving energy of those of us who pray for them bring them comfort and warmth in this their hour of need.
In their fear you can create a world of peace and safety becuase in you all things are possible.

If Allah afflicts you with hardship, there is none that can remove it save Him, and if He blesses you with good fortune, no one can reduce it. He has power over all things.

-Qur'an, Al-An'am, Surah 6:17

My prayer for the men and women who are being held by the Iraqi soldiers:

In all things, Allah *swt* has a hand. For each of you I pray for your fair treatment and safe return to your families. Place your trust in the Creator and He will guide you out of the difficulty you face presently.
