Prayer as we enter Shabbat

[David  here, 

I decided to re-post this , because I think Esther did a bloody good job with this prayer.

Shabbat Shalom!]

As we begin our Shabbat, light our candles, entreat our beloveds to the Bride of Shabbat, pour wine and eat bread, eat our food ,may we all pray :

"May G-d protect those who are ill ,suffering, unsure, afraid today. May he bless those who are happy to bless others with that happiness; for those who are without bread today, may we remember and uplift those in need. May we be more Shalom in the name of the G-d of peace, show compassion in the name of the G-d of love and celebrate in the name of the G-d of life. May our actions & deeds be greater than our words, may we bring honour to faith and show by example the name of G-d, the creator of the universe. May The L-rd bless you and keep you, the L-rd make his face shine on you and be gracious to you, the L-rd  turn his face toward you and give you peace. May we say this in the name of  The L-rd our G-d. The L-rd alone."

Le us all say Amen, blessed be Adonai, now and forevermore.

  6. Hi David

    As I said last week really like this prayer, so thanks for re blogging.

    Oh and David, we're doing a pre-Shabbos BBQ and drinks, after the service at 6.30ish; there's about 9 or 10 of us so plenty more room , if you and Mrs K & the kids are interested? Long time to wait for dinner at about .9.30 ? We've some fine malt as well (:
