Judith prays before her killing (Jdt 13:4-13:5)

“Then Judith, standing beside his bed, said in her heart.

‘O Lord God of all might,

Look in this hour upon the work of my hands

For the exaltation of Jerusalem.

Now, indeed is the time to help your heritage

To carry out my design

To destroy the enemies

Who have risen up against us.”

Judith now prayed for strength to carry out her work for Jerusalem. She was going to help God’s chosen people. She was going to carry out her design to destroy the enemies of Israel. She wanted God’s help to kill General Holofernes.
