Blessing Upon Receiving a Bomb Threat

a prayer book on a lectern with a Star of David
Hashem yereicham, Source of Mercy and comfort, be with us now. Terror has come to our doors, threatening to enter. The hate-filled ones have come to taunt us with their power to provoke fear. Protect us from their evil intent. Strengthen us to endure their instigations of fear. Comfort us in our moments of vulnerability. Lo Aleiynu, may this promise of destruction not befall any of us. Restore for us the ability to breathe deeply again; to enter our institutions without trepidation; and to feel safe in our own homes. And may we rejoice together in a time when justice and peace reigns on earth, soon and in our days.
