HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita calls on the tzibur to be mispallel for IDF soldiers during Operation Protective Edge as well as increasing limud Torah as the IDF counter-terrorism operation in Gaza continues. Rav Kanievsky quotes Rav Wasserman HY”D in the name of the Gra ZT”L, that a Heavenly decree (kitrug) is extinguished with Torah. In addition, when seeing so many miracles one must be mechazeik in one’s emunah and bitachon in HKBH for our lives are truly miraculous.
To accomplish this Rav Kanievsky explains we must study the appropriate seforim, such as חיי עולם, the beginning of the second chapter, where the Steipler ZT”L wrote a list of seforim that address being mechazeik in one’s emunah.from yeshivaworld

July 23, 2014 morning https://www.dropbox.com/s/clqf4etdgxqot8z/july232014am.mp3 I want to thank everyone for participating on these calls…today’s call is an hour long but the participation and interchange speak for themselves.
May our efforts be the arousal from below in prayer and teshuva that Hashem is waiting for to bestow the arousal from above with all the blessings intended for the Jewish People as stated in Torah.
May our efforts to clean off our individual impurities benefit klal yisrael because are all one Nishmas Am Yisrael
May our increasing awareness of the empowerment that Hashem gives to Nishmas Am Yisrael through speech and davening help us have a new relationship with our suffering and challenges based on an expanded understanding of our identity as well as our esteem as effort to use tefilla and speech in this way
May the tremendous awareness we are gaining to bend and glue happiness and pleasure to emulating Hashem’s Attributes of Mercy, tolerating insult, overlooking faults, bearing the burden of confusion of mind, forgiving, and casting sins into the sea, become a merit for all klal yisrael as triumphing tzelem elokim over the animal soul and growing in the ability to see happines and pleasure in our consciousness as stemming from tzelem elokim in lieu of worldly concerns.
