Upon waking we can give God thanks for life to live a new day.
I give thanks before You, living and eternal King, You mercifully restore my soul within me—great is Your faithfulness.
These are the words of the Jewish modeh ani (I give thanks) prayer that is recited when waking in the morning.
The prayer is based on the words from Lamentations that praise God for his mercies that are renewed every morning.
“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
(Lamentations 3:22–23 NRSV)
The prayer follows patterns that can be found in many of the Psalms.
“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.” (Psalms 107:1 NKJV)
“Let my prayer be set before You as incense” (Psalms 141:2 NKJV)
“Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray.” (Psalms 5:2 NKJV)
“He restores my soul” (Psalms 23:3 NKJV)
“Your mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.” (Psalms 36:5 NKJV)
