Shabbat Prayer – Because

Abba…because You love us,
You created us and walked with us.

Because You love us,
Your heart broke when we disobeyed You.

Because You continued to love us,
You saved Noach and his family
and gave us all a fresh start.

Because You continued to love us,
You set aside a people for Yourself
through whom You wanted to show Yourself to the world.

Because You continued to love us,
You did not remove free will choice from Your people.

Because of Your love for us,
You rescued Your people from the bondage in which they lived.

Because You love us,
You continue to do so today.

Because You love us,
You made a covenant with Your people and invited all to join.

Because You made a covenant with Your people,
You gave Your Words…to the Jew first
so that they could show the rest of us how to live
and how to know You.

Because You gave us Your Words,
we knew that Mashiach was coming.

Because Mashiach came,
we have a new covenant.

Because we have a new covenant,
we have the Ruach HaKodesh living within us.

Because we have the Ruach HaKodesh,
we are Your children,
adopted into Your family.

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu, Melech haOlam!
Blessed are You, O L-rd, Our G-d, King of the Universe!

You have not abandoned us.
You have not given up on us.
You have remained faithful
even when we have not.

I praise You and thank You, Abba,
for Your amazing love and generosity toward us.
You have shown us mercy and compassion,
not giving us what we deserve,
but blessing us instead.

May we love You always,
with everything we are and have.

May we love our neighbors as ourselves.

May we love one another.

B’shem Yeshua
