What is the Hebrew prayer in the movie Independence Day?

The 4th of July seems like a good time to ask this. In the movie Independence Day there is a scene where Julus Levinson is praying in Hebrew. Here the clip for reference.

What prayer is that? Is it safe to assume that he’s using a prop Siddur?

One said thing I read about this movie is that when it was in theaters in Lebanon they removed the explicitly Jewish parts. So these scene was never shown in Lebanese theaters. Then later they realized that they missed a part where Julius is wearing a kippah. So they stopped showing the movie and removed the offending scene before theaters could resume showing the movie. Unfortunately I can’t find the article I read that in. If anyone can find info on that. Please share.
