Here is what our morning Sabbath prayers looked like:

Opening:

Listen my soul.  This is your task:

To bless the holy name of Yahweh and remember all of God’s kindnesses.

Remember your offenses and know they are forgiven.

Remember your diseases and know that they are healed.

Remember your death and know that you are living.

Know that this tender love is Yahweh’s way with you.

A fool may ask for justice, but Yahweh gives us mercy.

Our sins deserve God’s anger; but we are given love.

All within me sings:  Yahweh is our loving God Whose mercy is upon us; bless your God, my soul.

(written by Evelyn Avoglia)

Reading 1: Psalm 2

Reading 2: Story of the Entry into Jerusalem

Sharing God-stories

Blessing:

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever He may send you.  May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm.  May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you.  May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.  (from Celtic Daily Prayer)
