Also known as the Ana b'Koach, this ancient prayer, composed by Rav Nehunia Ben Hakannah, has been revived by the Kabbalah Centre.
Known as the 42-letter Name of God, the Ana b’Koach is a unique formula built of 42 letters written in seven sentences of six words each. Each of the seven sentences correspond to the seven days of the week, seven specific angels, and to a particular heavenly body. The letters that make up Ana b’Koach are encoded within the first 42 letters of the book of Genesis.
The kabbalists explain that this combination of letters takes us back to the time of Creation, and each time we meditate on a particular sequence, we return to the original uncorrupted energy that built the world. By performing the Ana b'Koach mediation, we enrich our lives with unadulterated spiritual Light and positive energy.
To learn more, we recommend reading The Prayer of the Kabbalist: The 42 Letter Name of God by Yehuda Berg.
In the midst of such chaos in my life, I have been able to find peace through studying Kabbalah. Without any doubts whatsoever, I would highly recommend anyone to call. I am so thankful for The Kabbalah Centre, because it has made all the difference in my spiritual growth and development.

Kabbalah is the best gift I have had this year. But it did not come easy. It is a result of a lot of hard, focused, and disciplined work my teacher guided me through. Often I had to go out of my comfort zone to apply the tools. But the satisfaction and confidence I now feel is indescribable.

Now I look back and question what exactly I did and how I managed without these teachings in my life.
