Rabbi Berland’s Prayer To Accept Disgrace Happily
TO MERIT TO BE A HEEL THAT IS TRODDEN UPON.
AND THROUGH LOWLINESS AND ACCEPTING DISGRACE, MAY I MERIT THE FOOTSTEPS OF MOSHIACH, AND MAY THE ANGELS OF THE CHARIOT ACCOMPANY ME AT EVERY MOMENT.
Humility and Lowliness
“And it will be if you will listen…”
Master of the world, Who can do anything, after we heard in Parashat Va’etchanan the Ten Commandments, which are 172 words, the same numerical value as the letters of the word ‘ekev’, may we merit after hearing the Ten Commandments true humility, and to be always follow true lowliness
And to fulfill the verse, “I turned by heart to fulfill your laws forever to follow you”.
May I always be like a heel, like the Noam Elimelech wrote, that we came to this world to be always like a heel, because the purpose of all our studies and from all our serving Hashem is to be always like a floor that is trodden upon and always to fulfill the verse,
“I turned by heart to fulfill your laws forever to follow you”.
Please Hashem, save me from, “the scorn of man and the despised of the people”. Like it says, “Remember, G-d, the scorn of your servant, I carried in my bosom so many of the people, who scorned your enemy Hashem, who scorned the footsteps of your Moshiach”, in the merit of hearing the Ten Commandments.
Please Hashem, may I merit the footsteps of the Moshiach, the time of the Moshiach, the time of Moshiach ben David (435) in the blink of any eye (435).
In the merit of the Tzaddik who is the foundation of the world (435), Rabbenu (268) Nachman (148) son of (52) Simcha (353) son of (52) Faige (94) = 967.
And through this the angels, Nuriel (297), Gavriel (246) and Michael (107) and Rafael (317) = 967 will accompany me day (96) and night (81) = 177, and through this may I enter with my body into Gan (53) Eden (124) = 177.
