Chapter 13 - Prayers

Daily Prayers:

Here are some of the prayers Yeshua would most likely of prayed each day – or at least somewhat similar (English translation). As talmidim you might want to pray these.


Cover you eyes with your right hand and say:

Hear, O Israel, Adonai our Elohim, Adonai is One.

Recite the following verse in an undertone:

Blessed be the name of the Glory of His kingdom forever and ever.

You shall love Adonai your Elohim with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be upon your heart. You shall teach them thoroughly to your children, and you shall speak of them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road, when you lie down and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for a reminder between your eyes. And you shall write them upon the doorposts of your house and upon your gates.

And it will be, if you will diligently obey My commandments which I enjoin upon you this day, to love Adonai your Elohim and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, I will give rain for your land at the proper time, the early rain and the late rain, and you will gather in your grain, your wine and your oil. And I will give grass in your fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be sated. Take care lest your heart be lured away, and you turn astray and worship alien gods and bow down to them. For then Yahweh’s wrath will flare up against you, and He will close the heavens so that there will be no rain and the earth will not yield its produce, and you will swiftly perish from the good land which Adonai gives you.

Therefore, place these words of Mine upon your heart and upon your soul, and bind them for a sign on your hand, and they shall be for a reminder between your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, to speak of them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road, when you lie down and when you rise. And you shall inscribe them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates - so that your days and the days of your children may be prolonged on the land which Yahweh swore to your fathers to give to them for as long as the heavens are above the earth.

Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to the children of Israel and tell them to make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to attach a thread of blue on the fringe of each corner. They shall be to you as tzizits, and you shall look upon them and remember all the commandments of Yahweh and fulfill them, and you will not follow after your heart and after your eyes by which you go astray - so that you may remember and fulfill all My commandments and be holy to your Elohim. I am the Yahweh your Elohim who brought you out of the land of Egypt to be your Elohim; I, Adonai, am your Elohim.

Pray the Shema in Hebrew:

Cover your eyes with your right hand and say:

Sh'ma Yis-ra-eil, A-do-nai E-lo-hei-nu, A-do-nai E-chad.

My Adonai, open my lips, that my mouth may declare Your praise:


Blessed are You, Adonai our Elohim and Elohim of our fathers, Elohim of Abraham, Elohim of Isaac, Elohim of Jacob, the great, mighty and awesome Elohim, Elohim supreme, Who extends loving-kindness and is Master of all, who remembers the gracious deeds of our forefathers, and who brings a Redeemer with love to their children’s children for His Name’s sake. King, Redeemer, Savior, and Shield! Blessed are You O Adonai, Shield of Abraham.


Your might is eternal, O Adonai, Who revives the dead, powerful in saving, Who sustains the living with loving-kindness, Who revives the dead with great mercy, Who supports the falling, heals the sick, frees the captive, and keeps faith with those asleep in the dust. Who is like You, Almighty, and who resembles You, O King? Who can bring death and give life, and can make salvation blossom forth! And faithful are You to revive the dead. Blessed are You, Adonai, Who revives the dead.


You are holy and Your Name is holy, and holy ones will praise You every day, Selah. Blessed are You O Adonai, the holy Elohim.


You bestow knowledge to man, and teach understanding to mortals. Bestow upon us knowledge, understanding, and discernment from You. Blessed are You O Adonai, Who bestows knowledge.


Return us O Adonai, to Your Torah, and bring us near, our King, to Your service, and bring us back in complete repentance before You. Blessed are You Adonai, who favors repentance.

See our affliction, and fight our battle, and redeem us quickly for Your Name’s sake, for You are a strong Redeemer. Blessed are You O Adonai, Redeemer of Israel.


Heal us, O Adonai, and we will be healed. Save us, and we will be saved, for You are our praise. Cause complete healing to arise for all our ailments. (Use this place to pray for a sick person.) For You are Elohim, King, Healer, faithful, and compassionate. Blessed are You O Adonai, Healer of the sick of His people Israel.


Bless for us, O Yahweh our Elohim, this year and all the kinds of crops for goodness, and give a blessing upon the face of the earth. Satisfy us from Your goodness, and bless our year like the good years. Blessed are You O Adonai, Who blesses the years.


Blast the great shofar for our freedom, and raise a banner to gather our exiles, and gather us together from the four corners of the earth. Blessed are You O Adonai, Who gathers in the dispersed of His people Israel.


Return our judges as at first, and our counselors as in the beginning, and remove sorrow and groan from us, and rule over us, You O Adonai alone, with devotion and compassion, and justify us in judgment. Blessed are You O Adonai, King Who loves righteousness and judgment.


On the righteous, on the devout, on the elders of Your people, the House of Israel, and on their remaining scholars, and on the righteous sojourners and on us, may Your compassions be incited, O Yahweh your Elohim, and give a good reward to all who sincerely trust in

Your Name. Set our portion with them forever, and we will not be ashamed, for we trust in You. Blessed are You O Adonai, stronghold and security for the righteous.


Return to Jerusalem, Your city, and dwell in her midst as You have spoken. May You build it soon and in our days as an eternal building, and prepare the throne of David within it quickly. Blessed are You O Adonai, Builder of Jerusalem.


Cause the Branch of David to flourish quickly, and raise his horn in Your salvation, for we hope for Your salvation all day. Blessed are You O Adonai, Who makes the horn of salvation to flourish.


Hear our voice, O Adonai our Elohim, take pity and show compassion to us, and receive our prayer with compassion and favor, for You are Elohim Who hears prayers and supplications. Our King, do not turn us away with nothing, for You compassionately hear the prayer of Your people Israel. Blessed are You O Adonai, Who hears prayer.


Be favorable, O Adonai your Elohim, toward Israel Your people, turn to their prayer and restore the service to the Holy of Holies of Your House. And the fire offerings of Israel and their prayers may You speedily accept with love and favor, and may the service of Your people Israel be continually favorable to You.

You can give praise to HaShem for a new month and blow your shofar (trumpet). You could also recite Psalm 148:1-6, Song of Solomon 2:8-9, and Psalm 150. These are just a few of things the Jewish people pray. Probably what Yeshua prayed! And at the end you can do a dance of celebration
