DAILY PRAYER FOR THE COUNTING OF THE OMER:
Each day, one says the blessing:
Blessed are You, YAHUVEH our ELOHIM, King of the universe, Who has sanctified us with His commandments and has commanded us concerning the counting of the Omer.
Today is twenty-eight days, which is four weeks of the Omer.
YAH The Merciful One, may He return to us the service of the Temple to its place, speedily in our days, in YAHUSHUA’S NAME, AMEN!

The Walk of Humility
Psalm 147:1 PRAISE YAHUVEH! For it is good to sing praises to our ELOHIM, for HE is gracious and lovely; praise is becoming and appropriate.
Psa 147:2 YAHUVEH is building up Jerusalem; HE is gathering together the exiles of Israel.
Psalm 147:3 HE heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds [curing their pains and their sorrows]. HE determines and counts the number of the stars; HE calls them all by their names.
Psalm 147:5 Great is YAHUVEH and of great power; HIS understanding is inexhaustible and boundless.
Psalm 147:6 YAHUVEH lifts up the humble and downtrodden; HE casts the wicked down to the ground.
He should forgive those who have wronged him and he could even go so far as to pay him, as it is written: “Do not say just as he has done to me I will do to him, I will return to the man as he has done. (Proverbs 24:29)
Because of his humility, he is not concerned of the wrong that has been done to him.
Matthew 6:14 For if you forgive people their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
If trouble comes to his finances or his health, or his sons and relatives die, he will accept the judgement, and accept the decrees of YAHUVEH with love, for this is the way of humility when one receives afflictions. This is the way Aaron behaved when his sons Nadav and Avihu died. He accepted the judgement because of his humility, and did not erupt in his personal anguish, as it is written, …”And Aaron was silent.”…
Matthew 5:4 “How blessed are those who mourn! for they will be comforted.
If people honor him, he should not be proud, but rather he should be governed by the way of humility, and not be haughty in his heart. We have found this quality in Abraham when he honored Ephron and called him “My master a governor, a lord…”.
He even diminished himself in front of the most downtrodden as it is written, “And Abraham bowed before the people of the land…”
Romans 12:16 Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty (snobbish, high – minded, exclusive), but readily adjust yourself and give yourselves to humble tasks.
Never overestimate yourself or be wise in your own conceits. [Prov. 3:7.]
If he is found to have a reputation for wisdom, insight, wealth, or influence with the king, or anything else that make people haughty, he should not hold himself over his friends, but rather he should be humble and modest and he should behave as he did before he was known for these things.
As it is written: “If the spirit of the ruler ascends to you, do not leave your place.” (Ecclesiastes 10:4) This is referring to the place you were before.
Philippians 2:3 Do nothing out of rivalry or vanity; but, in humility, regard each other as better than yourselves – –
Philippians 2:4 look out for each other’s interests and not just for your own.
Philippians 2:5 Let your attitude toward one another be governed by your being in union with the Messiah YAHUSHUA:
Philippians 2:6 Though HE was in the form of ELOHIM, HE did not regard equality with ELOHIM something to be possessed by force.
Philippians 2:7 On the contrary, HE emptied himself, in that HE took the form of a slave by becoming like human beings are. And when HE appeared as a human being,
Philippians 2:8 HE humbled HIMSELF still more by becoming obedient even to death – death on a stake as a criminal!
If afflictions happen to you do not hesitate to do repentance in public. Do not refuse to do so because of personal pride. We have the example of those who were in the diaspora at the time of Ezra when he rebuked them., they repented and did repentance immediately. As it is written:
“We have betrayed our ELOHIM and have settled with foreign wives…” (Ezra 10:2) They repented and righted their ways.
Psalm 32:1 How blessed are those whose offense is forgiven, those whose sin is covered!
Psalm 32:2 How blessed those to whom YAHUVEH imputes no guilt, in whose spirit is no deceit!
Psalm 32:3 When I kept silent, my bones wasted away because of my groaning all day long;
Psalm 32:4 day and night your hand was heavy on me; the sap in me dried up as in a summer drought. (Selah),br>
Psalm 32:5 When I acknowledged my sin to you, when I stopped concealing my guilt, and said, “I will confess my offenses to ELOHIM”; then you, you forgave the guilt of my sin. (Selah)
Read Psalm 119: 49 – 56
Psalm 119:49 ז (Zayin) Remember your promise to your servant, through which you have given me hope.
