Prayer Before and After Scripture Study

These blessings and prayers are for individuals and small groups, but not for the congregation to use during Torah reading from the bema.

Before Scripture Study
In the name of the + Father, and of the Son, and of the Spirit of holiness. Amen.

Blessed are You, Mar-Yah our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us with His Commandments, and commanded us to study words of Torah.

After Scripture Study
In the name of the + Father, and of the Son, and of the Spirit of holiness. Amen.

Lord Yeshua, you who were brought forth by the very hand of God the Father, made known to the Blessed Mother Maryam, by the message of the angel Gabriel — I praise you, I thank you and I honour you with all my heart. It was you who said, ‘I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me, shall not hunger; and he that believeth on me, shall never thirst.’ Grant unto the presence of the Spirit of holiness as you promised to your disciples, so that I may understand the Word of God and the Will of the Father for me. Amen.
