Meditation and Prayer

A Morning Meditative Prayer of Thanks to God


Every night before sleep, we give our tired and worn-out souls back to God. Every morning, we receive our souls anew, refreshed and full of energy. Therefore, the first words that we say upon waking are:

"I thank You ever living King,
for compassionately returning my soul to me,
how great is Your faithfulness"

In Hebrew:
Modeh ani l'fanecha melech chai v'kayam,
she-hech-ezarta be nishmati b'chemla,
rabah emuna-techa

With this thought and intention of "I thank You," we begin our day. This thought accompanies us, always engraved in our consciousness, the whole day long.
