Deuteronomy 6:4-6; 7:6-11
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart...
For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the Lord set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples, but it is because the Lord loves you and is keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers, that the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations, and repays to their face those who hate him, by destroying them. He will not be slack with one who hates him. He will repay him to his face. You shall therefore be careful to do the commandment and the statutes and the rules that I command you today.
Let us pray for the whole people of God in Christ Jesus and for all people according to their needs.
Blessed are You, O Lord, our God creator of the universe, who keeps covenant and steadfast love with Your people and redeemed Israel from the house of slavery. Lead Your people Israel to recognize Your steadfast and covenantal love that is demonstrated in Your Son Yeshua Hamashiach who came into the World, and redeemed all us from our slavery to sin and death.
Blessed are You, O Lord our God upholder of life; You are our helper in times of need. Hear our prayers on behalf of your people and deliver them from every trouble. We pray especially for Lisa, Pastor Kassouf, Elizabeth, Nancy, Micha, Becky, Dennis, Steve and Helen.
Blessed are You, O Lord our God. You are slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. You are good to all, and Your mercy is over all that you have made. Bless all who work to bring the knowledge of Your abounding and steadfast love to the whole world, especially all those who work with the Apple of His Eye. Enable them to speak of the glory of Your kingdom and faithfully tell of Your power.
All these things we pray in the Holy Name of Yeshua Hamashiach Amen!
