Abba…as we enter Your holy Shabbat
we think of You
and of Your righteous judgments.
We think of all the rulings and judgments You so lovingly gave us
so that we would know
how to live with You
and how to live with others.
Abba, You call upon Your children to make righteous judgments…
not to condemn…
not to feel superior…
not to put people “in their place”…
but to love them…
to show them the truth…
to reach out and help them.
You want us to live in peace with others.
walking in the Shalom of Yeshua,
filled with Your Ruach,
arm in arm and heart to heart
with our spiritual siblings.
You call us to discern truth from lie…
the things of You from
the things of hasatan
and of our fleshly and selfish desires.
You call us to walk in uprightness,
and walking in the Light.
May we live according to Your ways,
always obedient to Your teachings,
and always loving as You love.
May we feed the hungry,
clothe the naked,
house the homeless,
visit the sick and those in prison.
May we bring Your Ruach
to set captives free.
May we bring Your healing Shalom
and reach out with Your words
and Your arms of love.
May we love You with
all of our hearts,
all of our souls,
all of our minds,
and all of our strengths.
May we love our neighbor as ourselves.
May we love one another.
