Mourners' Prayer When There is No Minyan

When a Minyan Cannot Gather (to be used in exigent circumstances only)

רוֹבּנו שֶׁל עוֹלָם, אֱלֹהֵי הָרוּחוֹת לֵֽכל־בָּשָׂר
Ribbono shel olam, elohei ha-ruchot l’khol basar —
Master of the world, God of the spirit of all flesh, it is revealed and known before You that it is my fervent desire to praise Your name, and to remember and honor my beloved:
father/mother/son/daughter/ husband/wife/partner/brother/sister/________
[the name and relation of the person may be inserted]
by reciting the Mourner’s Kaddish in the company of a minyan. Though circumstances prevent me from doing so, may my yearning and prayers find favor in Your eyes, and be accepted and received before You as if I had prayed that Kaddish.
May you grant hope and healing to all who suffer, and may we soon be able to once again safely gather in holiness and joy.
May Your name, Adonai, be elevated and sanctified everywhere on earth and may peace reign everywhere.
עֹשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם בִּמְרוֹמָיו הוּא יַעֲשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם עָלֵֽינוּ
.ועַל כּל־יִשְׂרָאֵל, [ועַל כּל־ישׁוֹבֵי תֵבֵל,] ואִמְרוּ אָמֵן
Oseh shalom bimromav hu ya·aseh shalom aleinu
v’al kol yisrael [v’al kolyosh’vei teiveil], v’imru amen.
This prayer is adapted from Siddur Lev Shalem by Rabbi Jan Uhrbach.
