Reciting First-Person Quotes from God during Prayer

I was wondering if there are any teachings (most likely mystical) about what it means that we pretty often will recite phrases like “Ani Adonai Eloheikhem” – “I am the LORD your god”. We’re obviously meant to be quoting God but it’s still interesting to me what implications it might have that we, as humans, are saying the words “I am god” in some sense. Throughout the V’ahavta, we’re embodying God’s perspective and saying 2nd person commands essentially to ourselves. I’m wondering (1) about Jewish interpretations of this and (2) if there are parallels in other religions. Does the New Testament even have “quotes” from God??
