Shabbat prayer

This Shabbat’s combination of wintery weather and day-of-rage-promises from our enemies close by, did not make it hard to come up with reasons to just stay home. But, really, in difficult times, it is important to stand together, – that is the way that we are strongest, and that is the way to keep on really living!


So we went as a family to pray in the synagogue this morning, – and it turned out to be one of the most uplifting mornings in a long time! Each one of the prayers just stood out as such a strong and fitting one at a time like this!

Just think of all the times that we call God “Magen Avraham” or “Magen David” – “The shield of Abraham” or “The shield of David”! He really is our shield! It was just so helpful to regain perspective of this, and be reminded of just who God is! Listen to this;

True is the eternal God, our King, Rock of Jacob, Shield of our Salvation.

He exists and His name exists through all generations.

His throne is established, His kingship and faithfulness endure for ever.

True, You are the LORD, our God and God of our ancestors,

our King and King of our ancestors, our Maker,

Rock of our Salvation,

our Deliverer and Rescuer!

Rock of Israel!

Arise to the help of Israel.

Deliver as You promised, Judah and Israel!

And how about this:

Blessed are You, LORD,

who blesses His people Israel with peace.

Amen! May it be so!

    You are amazing Te’ena very precious, love your blogs so look forward to receiving them.

    Our hearts go out to you and we uphold you.

    Yeshua came to bring peace, He is the prince of peace. I love to think and see peace and try to imagine how that would look and feel.

    Jerusalem He chose it for Himself it is His.

    How special and what a joy to dwell on that.

      Thank you for your encouraging words, Elaine!
      I am also pondering peace these days, – there must be different kinds and levels of peace, and I guess it is not only what we first think of when we hear the word.
      Blessings to you from Jerusalem.
