Awe of God Toolbox: XII
The prayer Modeh Ani is a great tool to put in your toolbox. It says, thank you for restoring my soul. While I was sleeping You had my soul in your hands. Or, the prayer, Elohai Neshama – the soul that You put in me is pure. Even if all you say in the morning is Modeh Ani without the rest of the davening, that is a good effort to developing Awe of God. Another bracha is Mechaye HaMetim – He who restores life to the dead. That’s a pretty awesome thing!
