The Morning Blessings-Blessing #6: Sight

Every morning, a set of 15 blessings is recited to express our thanks to God for all the things that we, as healthy human beings, are capable of doing.

Ba’ruch Ah’tah Ah’doh’nai Eh’lo’hay’nu Melech ha’o’lam pokay’ach ivreem.

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who gives sight to the blind.

Did you open your eyes this morning and see the beauty of the world? If so, take a moment to say, “Thank God.”
