David’s Prayer is a prayer recited every morning (Shacharit) as part of the hymnal verses of the Jewish prayers. This beautiful praise was uttered by King David, at one of the most supreme moments of his life, when he was denied the right to build the Holy Temple, but was allowed to set aside resources for its construction by his son Solomon. As David set aside his contributions to the Temple at the time he blessed the entire congregation, it has become a custom to set aside money for charity or tithe when reciting this praise (except on Shabbat and Holidays).
1 Chronicles 29:10-13 Translation: “Therefore David blessed the Lord in the presence of all the assembly. And David said: ‘Blessed are you, O Lord, the God of Israel our father, forever and ever. Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head over all. Riches and honor come from you, and you rule everything. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. Therefore, we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name.'”
How does it work?
Each Hebrew word is broken into syllables and transliterated using the English alphabet. The forward-slash (“/”) separates between syllables and the capitals point to where the accent should be. Pronounce each syllable by itself, then pronounce the entire word as a whole before moving on to the next word. In addition, each Hebrew word is translated into English, so you can understand what it means within the context. Therefore, with just a little practice, you will be able to recite these verses in Hebrew and above all, gain a deeper understanding of the Word of God!
