Each day, one says the blessing:
Blessed are You, YAHUVEH our God, King of the universe, Who has sanctified us with His commandments and has commanded us concerning the counting of the Omer.
Today is the 33rd day, which is 5 weeks, and 5 days of the Omer. The Merciful One, may He return to us the service of the Temple to its place, speedily in our days. Amen, Selah! IN YAHUSHUA’S NAME
Week 5 /Attribute 5 – Humility/Devotion (Hod) We have completed 4 weeks counting to Shavuot Sitting At The Feet Of Our Master YAHUSHUA Devoted To Prayer Mat 6:5 “When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites, who love to pray standing in the synagogues and on street corners, so that people can see them. Yes! I tell you, they have their reward already! Mat 6:6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. Your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. Mat 6:7 “And when you pray, don’t babble on and on like the pagans, who think God will hear them better if they talk a lot. Mat 6:8 Don’t be like them, because your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Mat 6:9 You, therefore, pray like this: ‘Our Father in heaven! May your Name be kept holy. Mat 6:10 May your Kingdom come, your will be done on earth as in heaven. Mat 6:11 Give us the food we need today. Mat 6:12 Forgive us what we have done wrong, as we too have forgiven those who have wronged us. Mat 6:13 And do not lead us into hard testing, but keep us safe from the Evil One. [The latter half of verse 13 is not found in the oldest manuscripts.] For kingship, power and glory are yours forever. Amen.’ Shemonah Esreh or Amidah – The Shmoneh Esreh is a beautifully simple prayer. Almost every phrase has it’s source in the Bible. Each blessing is a very ingenious collection of Biblical words and phrases pieced together to form a new composition that reflects a broad spectrum of personal needs, communal needs, and Jewish convictions. The Shmoney Esreh is said while facing in the direction of in Eretz Israel. Worshipers in Eretz Israel face towards Jerusalem. Worshipers in Jerusalem face the Temple Mount, where the Temple (Beit HaMikdash) once stood. The Holy Ark in every synagogue is generally located so that when one faces the Ark, one is also standing in the proper direction… The Shmoneh Esreh should be said quietly to oneself, based on the example set by Hannah, whose praying lips moved, but her voice could not be heard” (I Sam 1;13). That is why the Shmoneh Esreh is sometimes referred to as the “Silent Prayer”. Inasmuch as we also relate to God as the King of Kings, the Sovereign of the universe, no less courtesy should be shown to Him than to mortal kings. The convention that prevailed in high courts when approaching a king thus became the basis for several customs during worship: for example, three small steps forward are taken before beginning the Shmoneh Esreh. [This prayer is said three times per day, where each prayer service is in remembrance of the temple sacrifices which cannot take place without the temple. In the morning and afternoon service, is said once individually, and once corporately.] The public repetition was instituted for the benefit of those who were not able to recite it properly. By listening attentively and answering “Amen” at the end of each blessing, such worshipers are considered to have fulfilled their prayer obligation. YAHUSHUA would have prayed this beautiful prayer that covers every area that you can think of to pray about. The “Our Father’ is thought to be a shortened version that YAHUSHUA gave of the Shemonah Esreh or Amidah. This prayer covers the following areas….
