THE EREV SHABBAT KIDDUSH
 SHABBAT SANCTIFICATION PRAYER

THE EREV SHABBAT SANCTIFICATION PRAYER 

 
The Sixth Day.
The heavens and the earth were completed and all their array.
And on the seventh day, Yehovah finished the work He had done,
and he rested on the seventh day from all the work He had done.
And Yehovah blessed the seventh day and made it Set Apart,
because on it He rested from all His work that He created to do.
Blessed are You Yehovah our Elohim, King of the Universe,
Who has sanctified us with His Commandments and taken delight in us.
With love and favor He gave us the Set Apart Shabbat as a heritage, a remembrance of creation.
For it is the beginning of our sacred convocations, a memorial of the Exodus from Egypt.
For You have chosen us, and You have sanctified us from all the nations.
And You gave us Your Set Apart Shabbat, with love and favor as a heritage.
Blessed are You Yehovah who sanctifies the Shabbat.
 
 

Blessing over the Bread

 
Ba-ruch a-ta Yehovah,
Eh-lo-hay-nu meh-lehch ha-o-lahm,
ha-mo-tzee leh-chehm meen ha-a-retz.
 
Blessed are You Yehovah our Elohim,
King of the Universe,
Who brings forth bread from the Earth.
Yeshua said, I am the bread of life that came down from heaven. I give life unto the world.
 
 

Blessing The Fruit of The Vine

 
Ba-ruch a-ta Yehovah,
Eh-lo-hay-nu meh-lehch ha-o-lahm,
bo-ray p’ree ha-ga-fen.
 
Blessed are you Yehovah our Elohim,
King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.
Yeshua is the true vine and we are the branches. If we abide in Him and He abides in us, we will bring forth much fruit!
