The children of Israel shall keep and guard the Sabbath and observe it throughout their generations as an eternal covenant. It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever, that the Lord created heaven and earth in six days, and that on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.
May my prayers of [articulated] words as well as the meditations of my heart be acceptable to You, Lord, my Rock and Redeemer.
Thou shield of the fathers, protector of their children, revivest our drooping spirits.
The holy God, beyond compare, giveth rest to His people on His holy Sabbath Day.
We will serve Him with reverence, and offer thanks To His name continually.
To Him our thanks are due; He is the Lord of peace, Who halloweth the Sabbath and blesseth it.
He sanctifieth our worship, and filleth our hearts With joy.
SHALOM RAV - GRANT US PEACE
Grant us peace, Thy most precious gift, O Thou eternal source of peace, and enable Israel to be its messenger unto the peoples of the earth. Bless our country that it may ever be a stronghold of peace, and its advocate in the council of nations. May contentment reign within its borders, health and happiness within its homes. Strengthen the bonds of friendship and fellowship among the inhabitants of all lands. Plant virtue in every soul, and may the love of Thy name, hallow every home and every heart. Praised be Thou, O Lord, Giver of peace.
May He who establishes peace in HIs high place establish peace for us and for all Israel; and those praying here signal assent and say amen.
Praised be You, O Lord, our God, King of the universe, who has sanctified us through His commandments and has taken delight in us. Out of love and with favor You have given us the Holy Sabbath as a heritage, in remembrance of Your creation. For that first of our sacred days recalls our exodus and liberation from Egypt. You chose us from among all Your peoples, and in Your love and favor made us holy by giving us the Holy Sabbath as a joyous heritage. Praised are You, O Lord, our God, who hallows the Sabbath.
Our God and God of our fathers, bless us with the threefold blessing written in the Torah:
“May the Lord bless you and guard you. (So may it be His will.)
May the Lord make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you. (So may it be His will.)
May the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.” (So may it be His will.)
Lord of the world, who reigned even before form was created,
It was when His will brought everything into existence—
That His name was proclaimed King.
At the time when His will brought everything into existence,
Then His name was proclaimed King.
And even should existence itself come to an end,
He, the Awesome One, would yet reign alone.
He was, He is, He shall always remain in splendor throughout eternity.
He is “One”—there is no second or other to be compared with Him.
He is without beginning and without end;
All power and dominion are His.
He is my God and my ever living Redeemer,
And the Rock upon whom I rely in times of distress and sorrow. He is my banner and my refuge,
The portion in my cup—my cup of life
Whenever I call to Him.
I entrust my spirit unto His hand,
As I go to sleep and as I awake;
For my body remains with my spirit.
The Lord is with me; I do not fear.
