In davening this morning at the Girls’ school, all the students were given a card to keep in their siddur, encouraging them to think of two or three things each day for which they are grateful to add extra meaning to their davening.
I thought this was something we can all learn from and so this is what was written on the cards:
Before reciting מודים, let us briefly reflect on the extent of Hashem’s kindness from which we benefit on a constant basis, and on the tremendous debt of gratitude we owe him…
What am I grateful for today?
There is plenty to complain or feel depressed about in the world today and we need reminders such as these that we still have so much to be grateful for. We can all lift our spirits by recalling Hashem’s kindness, reflecting on the richness of his gifts and repeating our thanks.
Wishing you all a good Shabbos.
