Shabbat Prayer – Hashivenu – Turn us to You

Abba…please turn our hearts toward You.

Please open our eyes to see You
and our ears to hear You
and our hearts to receive You.

Draw us away from the things of this world.
Help us to seek You above all else.
Help us to walk away from the ungodly things in our lives.
Help us to see the idols in our lives.
Help us to walk away from our idols.
Help us to always stand strong on You.

Help us to be forgiving of one another,
not allowing differences in thought to break the bond of fellowship.
Help us to remember what is really important,
agreeing to disagree on things that are not.

Keep Your leaders strong, Abba.
Guard all of our hearts and minds in Yeshua,
but especially Your leaders who are under special attack.

Watch over us, Abba.
Do not allow us to turn from the path.
Do not let us go to the right or the left.
Do not let us turn away from You.

I praise You, Abba,
for we know that Yeshua is faithful
to finish what He has begun in us.

Help those who are persecuted for their faith in You.
Strengthen them.
Heal them.
Provide for them.
Hold onto them when they are unable to hold on to You.

Awaken us, O L-rd, to what is going on around us.
Awaken us to the cries of the persecuted.
Awaken us to the cries of the poor.
Awaken us to the cries of the hungry.
Awaken us to the cries of the thirsty.
Awaken us to the cries of the sick.
Awaken us to the cries of those in slavery.
Awaken us to the cries of those in prisons.
Awaken us to the cries of the children and spouses being abused.
Awaken us to all the people and all the things that YOU care about!

Give us Your ears.
Give us Your eyes.
Give us Your heart.
Help us to share Your love with others,
and especially with those we find particularly difficult to love.
Help us to bring Your healing to the many who need it.

Abba, there are those who have walked away.
My heart is heavy with the knowledge of that.
Please…heal them and turn their hearts back to You.
Please help them to understand that You are the only One with real answers.
You are the only One True G-d,
Creator of the all there is.
Help them to recognize that Your followers are not You,
that what they do does not always reflect Your love and Your character.
Show them the truth, Abba.
Do not let them stay away!
Please bring them home to You!

I know that each one of us reading this
have someone they know who needs to come back into the fold.
Yeshua talked of leaving the 99 secure sheep
and going after that one.
So many of us know that one…or even more.
Abba, please send Yeshua to bring them back home.
Stir their hearts with longing for the Truth,
with longing for You.
Please don’t let them stay lost.

B’shem Yeshua
