May the One who was a source of blessing for our ancestors, Sarah and Abraham, Rebekah and Isaac, Rachel, Leah and Jacob bring blessings of healing upon Gabrielle Giffords and all struck with her, a healing of body and a healing of spirit. May those in whose care they are entrusted be gifted with wisdom and skill, and those who surround them be gifted with love and trust, openness and support in their care. And may they be healed along with all those who are in need. Blessed are You, Eternal Presence, Source of healing.
On her behalf and behalf of all of the injured I offer the prayer for healing offered for the Prophet Miryam:
אל נא רפא נא להHear Holy One, hear and heal her.
