A religious school in Sderot was hit by a Kassam rocket this morning. Noone was hurt, thank G-d, because the kids who are usually in this classroom were in another praying the morning service.
Part of the morning service, said in the portion known as the Amidah, is Modim (Thanksgiving). Here is the translation of a section of that prayer (Artscroll Siddur):
"We gratefully thank You, for it is You Who are Hashem, our G-d and the G-d of our forefathers for all eternity; Rock of our lives, Shield of our salvation are You from generation to generation. We shall thank You and relate Your praise - for our lives, which are committed to Your power and for our souls that are entrusted to You; for Your miracles that are with us every day; and for Your wonders and favors in every season - evening, morning and afternoon...."
We live in a land of miracles, and unfortunately we sometimes don't really appreciate that. I know that after hearing about the miracle of this morning I will say this prayer with more feeling.
