- The Shema
Yeshua mentioned the Shema when referencing the greatest commandment. While it is not literally a prayer or a blessing, the Shema (Sheh-MAH) is the heart and soul of Jewish prayer. It is the declaration of faith for Jewish people. The entire Shema contains three parts: Deuteronomy 6:4‒9, Deuteronomy 11:13‒21, and Numbers 15:37‒41. The first portion includes the Shema and the V’ahavta(V’ah-HAHV-tah). Shema means “hear, listen,” and is the first word of Deuteronomy 6:4. The Shema is spoken at least twice a day by observant Jews, at morning and evening services. Many Jewish people also say it at night before going to bed. The Shema Shema Yisrael, Adonai Elohenu, Adonai Echad. Baruch shem k’vod malchuto l’olam vaed. Hear O Israel! The Lord our God, the Lord is One. Blessed is the name of His glorious kingdom for all eternity.
Yeshua also referred to the first verse of the V’ahavta in the context of being part of the greatest commandment (Matthew 22:36‒38). The V’ahavta is found in Deuteronomy 6:5‒9. The Jewish customs of tefillin (the-fih-LEEN) and mezuzot(meh-ZOO-zot) grew out of obedience to the commands of God contained within the V’ahavta. V’ahavta And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be on your heart. And you shall teach them to your children, and speak of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and to be as frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
The Aleinu (Ah-LAY-noo) is a prayer recited near the end of every Jewish prayer service. The word “aleinu” means “it is our duty to praise.” The prayer directs the congregants’ hearts to their responsibility as Jewish people ‒ whom God chose and set apart ‒ to praise Him as the Master of all. It expresses gratitude for God’s covenant with the Jewish people and highlights His worthiness of all praise. The Aleinu also looks ahead to the Messianic Age when God restores all things and when “every knee will bow” to Him. Those in Messianic Judaism hear the echo of these same words used by the apostle Paul in referring to Yeshua (Philippians 2:10.)
Candle Lighting Blessing (Messianic) Most followers of Yeshua do not accept rabbinical authority and therefore object that we are "commanded" to light the Chanukah candles. The following Messianic blessing may therefore be recited instead: Blessed art thou, Lord our G-d, King of the universe, who has given to us

In general, the blessing is supposed to precede the performance of the Mitzvah. Therefore the blessing of Lehadlik is always recited before kindling the Chanukah lights. Most have the custom to wait with the lighting until all the blessings have been recited, though some do light immediately after the first blessing.
