Blessing for the Sabbath Candles

When our family celebrates the holy days, we always include words of Yeshua because he is central to the ‘appointed times’ of God.

 .ברוך אתה יהוה אלהנו מלך העולם אשר קדשנו במצותיו וצונו להדליק נר לש שבת

Baruch atah Adonai  Eloheinu Melek haOlam asher kidshanu b’mitzvotav vitzivanu lehadlik ner shel Shabat.

Blessed are you Adonai our God, King of the Universe who sanctifies us in His commandments and commanded us to kindle the Sabbath lights.

Over the years, I have modified this blessing because God never commands ‘kindling Sabbath lights.’  I now say:

Baruch atah Adonai Elohenu Melech haOlam asher kidshanu b’dam Yeshua HaMashiach vitzivanu l’kadaish et Shabbat.

Blessed are you Adonai our God, King of the Universe who sets us apart by the blood of Yeshua and commands us to keep the Sabbath day holy.

Yeshua

“Yeshua said, “I Am the Light of the World.  He who walks with me will have the Light of Life” (John 8:12).
