Your Weekly Beckoning: A Shabbat Prayer

In the flickering light, You beckon me.
In the candles’ glow, I reach for You.
In the busyness of the week, I often neglect You.
I forget You.
Yet, You are eternally here with me.
I return to You once again at the week’s end:
I sing Your praises,
I declare Your Oneness,
I welcome the Bride of Shabbat.
I speak to You in whispers.
I stare into the candles’ growing flames.
In that flickering light, You beckon me.
In the glowing light, I reach for You
Together we enter the Sanctuary of Shabbat.
