Morning Blessings

By Rabbi Shlomo Nachman ben Ya'akov © 12.29.2014 (updated May, 13, 2015)

As Rebbe Nachman of Breslov teaches us:
The secret of prayer is to be bold. We must have the audacity to ask God for everything we need - even if we need to ask Him to work miracles for us. Only with boldness and daring can we stand up and pray to God.

When we consider God's utter greatness - if we can form any conception of it at all - and think of our own smallness and worthlessness, how can we stand up and pray before Him? Even so, when we pray, we must cast our timidity aside and boldly ask God for everything we need. Only with bold assertiveness can we overcome the obstacles and barriers that stand in the way of our service of God.

        ~ Likutey Moharan I, 30

These blessings are part of the normal Shacharit Tefillah (i.e. Morning Prayers) offered up daily to HaShem by religious Jews.

Shacharit: Hebrew: שַחֲרִית šaḥăriṯ, (or Shacharis in Ashkenazi Hebrew), is the standardised daily morning Tefillah (prayer) of the Jewish people. The crown of these prayers is the Amida (aka the Shmoneh Esreh).
There are three main formalized Tefillah daily. Chassidic Jews encourage Hitbodedut Tefillah or daily private personal prayers as well. While these standardized prayers and blessings are very important, investing time with HaShem through Hitbodedut in ones own heartfelt way is vitally important to spiritual growth as well.

The following blessings are intended for Jews only. The reason for this is that portions of them do not apply to non-Jews; for instance: "Who has made me of People Y'israel." Obviously non-Jews are not of People Y'israel.

For the complete daily prayers see any Siddur (i.e. Jewish prayer book). I personally recommend the The Koren Siddur
