Yeshua's Lordship

While talking about Messianic additions to traditional prayers, Seth Klayman explores the Shema ...

After the recitation of the Shema, there is a reading from 1 Corinthians 8:4-6, which reaffirms the declaration of God's oneness, while also declaring that "there is one Lord, Yeshua the Messiah." For Messianic Jews, who hold to Yeshua's full deity (as well as full humanity), the declaration of Yeshua's Lordship is especially appropriate in the context of the Hebrew word echad, employed in Deuteronomy 6:4, to refer to God's oneness. For, that word opens the door for the Messianic Jewish understanding of God as a composite unity. (Chapter 3, page 57)

How do we think about this complex idea of God's oneness and unity? How do you express Yeshua's Lordship in your own form of prayer, as well as in a corporate worship setting?
