Prayer Against Slanderers: An Addition to the Shemoneh Esrei During the Russian/Ukrainian War

For the traffickers of wartime propaganda,
the speakers of the great imperialist lie:
 
Let all their hope fade and their twisted, wicked self-righteousness immediately be laid to waste.
 
May our enemies, white supremacy, antisemitism, hegemony, hatefulness, global despair and apathy fall before you, Rock of Ages. May you pluck out, overcome, shrink and lower the grandness of the arrogant that they bow before the humbleness of Your Grandeur.
 
Blessed are You, Source of Water in the Rock, Source of All the Living, who defeats our enemies and quashes all arrogance.
וְלַמַּלְשִׁינִים אַל תְּהִי תִקְוָה 
וְכָל הָרִשְׁעָה כְּרֶגַע תּאבֵד 
וְכָל אויְבֵי עַמְּךָ מְהֵרָה יִכָּרֵתוּ 
וְהַזֵדִים מְהֵרָה תְעַקֵּר וּתְשַׁבֵּר וּתְמַגֵּר וְתַכְנִיעַ בִּמְהֵרָה בְיָמֵינוּ 
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה', שׁובֵר אויְבִים וּמַכְנִיעַ זֵדִים
