Morning Blessings for Bnei Noah
By Rabbi Moshe Perets
Start Your Day the Right Right Way
1. You Should Say This Before Getting out of Bed.
“I offer thanks to You, living and eternal King, for You have mercifully restored my soul within me; Your faithfulness is great.”
It is proper to prepare for the Morning Blessings by getting dressed and washing one’s hands and face in a regular manner.
2. Then Recite the Following:
Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord, and who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not used My Name in vain and has not sworn falsely.
The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom; all who practice it have good sense; His praise endures forever. May the Seven Noahide Commandments of the Torah be my guide and may God Almighty be my help.
3.Then Recite “Adon Olom” (Lord of the Universe):
Lord of the universe, Who reigned
before anything was created
at the time when He made all by His will,
then was His Name proclaimed King.
And after all things will be uplifted,
the Awesome One will reign alone.
He was, He is, and He shall be in glory.
He is One, and there is no other
to compare to Him, to call His equal.
Without beginning, without end
power and dominion belong to Him.
He is my God and my ever-living Redeemer,
the strength of my lot in time of distress.
He is my banner and my refuge,
my portion on the day I call.
Into His hand I entrust my spirit
when I sleep and when I wake.
And with my soul, my body too,
the Lord is with me, I shall not fear.
4. Then Recite the Morning Blessings:
Blessed is He Who spoke, and the universe came into being; blessed is He.
Blessed is He Who says and does.
Blessed is He Who decrees and fulfills.
Blessed is He Who creates all that exists.
Blessed is He Who has compassion on the earth.
Blessed is He Who has compassion on the created beings.
Blessed is He Who provides good reward to those who fear Him.
Blessed is He Who lives forever and exists eternally.
Blessed is He Who redeems and saves; blessed is His Name.
5. Then Recite This:
Give thanks to the Lord, proclaim His Name; make His deeds known among the nations. Search for the Lord and His might; always seek His Presence. Relate His glory among the nations, and His wonders among all the peoples. The heavens will rejoice, the earth will exult, and among the nations they will proclaim, “The Lord reigns!
6. Then Recite These Verses of Psalms:
Exalt the Lord our God and bow down at His holy mountain, for the Lord our God is holy. May You, Lord, not withhold Your mercies from me; may Your kindness and truth continually guard me. Lord, remember Your mercies and Your kindnesses, for they have existed for all time. Deliverance is the Lord’s; may Your blessing be upon Your people forever.
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold forever. Lord of hosts, happy is the man who trusts in You. Lord, help us; may the King answer us on the day we call.
Our soul yearns for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, for we have put our trust in His holy Name. May Your kindness, Lord, be upon us, as we have placed our hope in You. Lord, show us Your kindness, and grant us Your deliverance. Arise, be our help, and redeem us for the sake of Your lovingkindness.
I have placed my trust in Your kindness, my heart shall rejoice in Your deliverance; I will sing to the Lord for He has dealt kindly with me.
7. The Recite Psalm 67:
For the choirmaster with instrumental music, a Psalm, a song. May God be gracious to us and bless us; may He make His countenance shine upon us forever, so that Your way will be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations. The nations will extol You, O God; all the nations will extol You. The nations will rejoice and sing for joy, for You will judge the peoples justly and guide the nations upon the earth forever. The peoples will extol You, O God; all the peoples will extol You, for the earth will have yielded its produce, and God, our God, will bless us. God will bless us; and all, from the farthest corners of the earth, will fear Him.
8. Then Recite the Verbal Acceptance of God’s Unity and Kingship (Kabbalat Ol Malchut Shamayim)
Almighty God, I accept upon myself that which is written in Your holy Torah: “You shall know this day and take to your heart that God [alone] is God, in the Heavens above and on the earth below – there is none other! ” I affirm the precepts of “You shall love God, your God, with all your heart, and all your soul, and all you’re might;” and “Fear God, your God, and serve Him, and in His Name [alone] shall you vow;” and, as it is written, “Fear G-d and observe His commandments, for that is a person’s entire duty.”
9. Then Recite The Seven Universal Commandments from G-d in the Torah for Humanity
I take upon myself to conduct my life according to the Seven Universal Noahide Commandments, based on the Torah Instructions given by G-d Al-mighty to Moses on Mount Sinai in the year 2448 of Creation in the Hebrew Calendar.
Believe and Trust in the One True G-d - HaShem. Not to worship any idol (anything other than G-d alone).
Honor the One True God and praise Him. Do not blaspheme G-d's Name or swear falsely or curse in His Name.
Respect the Sanctity of Human Life. Do not murder, injure, or act with cruelty to another person.
Respect Family Unity for G-d has Defined Marriage. Do not commit forbidden relations, including adultery or incest.
Respect the Property of Your Fellow Person. Do not commit theft, robbery, or extortion.
Respect the Life of All Creatures and Nature. Do not be cruel to animals, or eat flesh severed from a still-living animal.
Uphold the Establishment of Righteous Courts of Law. Reinforce correctness of the legal system and the administration of justice.
10. Then finally Recite Psalm 93
The Lord reigns; He is clothed with grandeur; the Lord has clothed and girded Himself with might; He also established the world firmly that it shall not falter. Your throne is established from of old; You are eternal. The rivers have raised, O Lord, the rivers have raised their voice; the rivers have raised their raging waves. More than the sound of many waters, mightier than the waves of the sea, the Lord is mighty on high. Your testimonies are most trustworthy; Your House will be resplendent in holiness, O Lord, forever.
You may then start having breakfast and moving on into your daily activities. You should consider nevertheless before leaving your home do a short study and prayer.
