Number 19

God's Got Your Back

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה', מָגֵן אַבְרָהָם

Baruch ata Adonai Magen Avraham

Praised are You Shield of Abraham

This is the original version of this bracha.  Today we include Sarah as well.  Imagine feeling your most vulnerable.  Now, imagine that there is someone who always has your back making sure no one can hurt you. We build fortresses physically and emotionally in our lives in order to gain a greater sense of security.  This bracha reminds us that God is our protector and that God has our backs.
