A Bride’s Prayer on Behalf of Agunot

May the One who Blessed our Ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Moses, Aaron, David and Solomon, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah, release and deliver all the agunot from the bonds of their plight as deserted wives because, God willing, I now take it upon myself, as I am standing under the huppah, to contribute to charity for their sake and I am also now praying for them.

May the Holy One, Blessed be, have mercy on them; may God strengthen and deliver them; may God grant them the opportunity to marry, to stand under their own wedding canopies and to build trustworthy families within the nation of Israel, with all other Jewish women who wish to be married. May we all witness the complete Redemption now, swiftly and soon. Amen.
