SHABEHMOT, an Arabic ecclesiastical term, literally meaning "receiving grace." Shabehmot is the title of the Prayer of Thanksgiving, beginning, "Let us give thanks to the Doer of Good and the Merciful, God the Father of our Lord and our God and our Savior Jesus Christ, for He hath sheltered us, He hath helped us, He hath guarded us, He hath purchased us, He hath spared us, He hath aided us, He hath brought us unto this hour."
The Lord's Prayer and the Shabehmot are both introductory prayers to almost all church services, except the Hours of the Holy Week, which have a special arrangement.
