Modah/Modeh Ani

File_000 (1)

Every morning when I awake I thank God for another day.  This is the meaning of the blessing Modah/Modeh Ani. We are thanking God for a new day, another day and for restoring our souls.

One of the classes I am taking at the Conservative Yeshiva this semester is about the practical aspects of Jewish law in our daily lives. One of our assignments a few weeks was to think and reflect on the morning blessings. I focused on Modah Ani and came up with this chant/song/prayer.

Modah ani lefanecha ruach Chai V’chayam
Modah ani efanecha ruach Chai V’chayam

Every Morning when I awake I thank you for another day
Modah ani lefanecha ruach Chai V’chayam

Modah ani lefanecha ruach Chai V’chayam
Adonai Adonai help me find my way today

Modah ani lefanecha ruach Chai V’chayam

Modah ani lefanecha ruach Chai V’chayam

she-he-chezarta bee nishmatee b’chemla, raba emunatecha
Have a great week
