Entering Shabbat

woman lighting the Shabbat candles
As we enter this sacred time of Shabbat,
May Adonai help us put aside
Our stresses of daily life
And absorb the calm of this holy moment.
As Shabbat begins,
May Adonai revive our ability to feel
The infinite potential this ceasing affords us
To regather our scattered selves.
In the hallowed space Shabbat creates,
May Adonai refresh our connections
To our loved ones and community
Expanding the threads which bind us together.
