49th Day

Week of Malkhut, Seventh Day

Major sefirah: Malkhut/Royalty-Kingship; minor sefirah: Malkhut/Royalty-Kingship

Well, this is it. The final day of preparation. I’m committed to serving the King for the sake of serving the King. Sounds a little circular, but that’s really the ideal form of pledging allegiance—you’re my King and it has nothing to do with “what have you done for me lately.”

Towards that end, I will ask for siyata d’Shemaya (Divine assistance) in anything that has to do with promoting His kingdom.

I will also try to offer support, material and otherwise, to those who have shown the willingness to sacrifice their own honor for the sake of God’s.

When I daven (pray) Shemonah Esrei I will try to put extra focus on any part that mentions God’s kingdom, or that of King David’s. I will also ask God for His forgiveness, for my having made my personal material concerns the primary focus of my prayers.

I don’t know about you, but I can taste. I can hardly wait!
