Modeh Ani Lifonecho


מוֹדֶה אֲנִי לְפָנֶיךָ, I gratefully thank You. Rabbi Shlomo Freifeld zt”l interpreted the verse (Shir HaShirim 5:2) אֲנִי יְשֵׁנָה וְלִבִּי עֵר, I am asleep but my heart is awake, to mean that if the אֲנִי, the “I,” is asleep, then my heart can be awake. Here too we can suggest that the first thing a Jew does in the morning is submit his אֲנִי  to HaShem, recognizing that HaShem is all powerful and controls every step we take.
