2,228 years ago Ptolemy IV Philopater attempted to destroy the Jewish people. YHWH intervened on our behalf when El'azar of Alexandria stood up and prayed for YHWH to intercede for the Jewish people saying:
1 And El’azar, an illustrious cohen of the country, who had attained to length of days, and whose life had been adorned with virtue, caused the Elders who were about him to cease to cry out to the set-apart Elohim, and prayed thus:
2 O king, mighty in power, most high, Almighty Elohim, who regulate the whole creation with your tender mercy,
3 look upon the seed of Avraham, upon the children of the sanctified Ya’akov, your sanctified inheritance, O Father, now being wrongfully destroyed as strangers in a strange land.
Note how these words have an uncanny parallel the opening prayer of the Amidah (called "AVOT" the fathers):
Baruch Atah YHWH Eloheynu v'Elohey a vo taynoo.
Elohey Avraham, Elohey Yitzchak V'Elohey Ya a kov,
Ha EL Ha Gadol, Ha Geebor, v'Ha Nora,
El Elyon, go mail chasadeem toveem, v'konay ha kol.
v'zo care chas day ahvot oo mayvee go ail leevnay v'nay hem
l'ma an sh'mo b'a havah.
Melech Ozair U'MaSHEEAH u OO 'MAGEN
Baruch Atah YHWH, Magen Avraham!
Blessed Are You YHWH, our Elohim and Elohim of our fathers;
Elohim of Avraham, Elohim of Yitzchak, Elohim of Yaacov,
the great and mighty and awesome Elohim, the most high Elohim,
who bestows grace and creates all
and remembers the kindnesses of the fathers
and brings a Redeemer to their children's
children, for His Name's sake with love.
O King, helper Savior and Shield!
Blessed are You YHWH. Shield of Avraham.
