“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 are with us every day...”
from the “Modim,” the Thanksgiving prayer

Found in the prayers Modim (“We gratefully than You”) and Shema (“Hear O'Israel”) this reminds us that the Lor will both protect those who believe in Him and redeem our souls in Olam Haba (the World to Come).

Our daily prayers reflect the appreciate of the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for our survival as a nation.
