Yehi kevod (Hebrew: יְהִי כְבוֹד, lit. [God] will be honored) is a prayer recited daily during pesukei dezimra prior to Ashrei. The prayer is a representation of God's exaltation in both the heavens and the earth.
The succession Yehi kevod has with Ashrei is significant: it symbolizes the connection of an inner relationship in which God as a helper and comforter whose loving-kindness is ever near us.
The first half of the prayer describes God as the master of nature. The second half describes God as the master of history.
