The Modeh Ani prayer

When one awakens in the morning, one must immediately recognize and appreciate the kindness G-d has done with them. For while returing his/her soul G-d has also returned the soul refreshed and rejuvenated, unlike the tired and weary soul which had been given over the previous night.

While still in bed, (even before one washes their hands) he should say the Modeh Ani - "I offer thanks to you..."

By saying Modeh Ani immediately upon awakening, one will realize that G-d is in his/her midst and will immediately get out of bed and prepare oneself for the service of G-d.

Modeh Ani Lefonecha Melech Chai Vikayom, Shehechezarta Bi Nishmasi Bechemlah.

Rabah Emunashecho.


I offer thanks to You, living and eternal King, for You have mercifully restored my soul within me;

Your faithfulness is great.
