Amidah: See & Know – Chanukah Kavanah
“See, please, our affliction.” After Teshuvah and Forgiveness we ask that God behold our suffering. We are specifically requesting that even the Attribute of Justice/Power behold our affliction, as in, “And the Lord [Elokim – Attribute of Justice/Power] saw the Children of Israel, and the Lord knew [‘to know’ as in, ‘to love.’] (Exodus 2:25).” We are requesting that the Attribute of Power see our affliction and fight our battles. (Pri Etz Chaim, Sha’ar haAmidah, Chapter 20)
May He, Who performed miracles for us on Chanukah, saw our suffering and fought our enemies, see our suffering now and defeat all our enemies.
