The Six Rememberances

At the end of the morning prayers, it is customary to read or recite the Six Rememberances:

So that you remember the day you came out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life

But beware and guard your soul scrupulously, lest you forget the things which your eyes have seen, and lest they be removed from your heart all the days of your life; make known to your children and to your children's children (what you saw) on the day when you stood before the Lord you G-d at Chorev (Sinai)

Remember what Amalek did to you on the way as you came out of the Egypt: how he met you on the way, and cut down all the weak who straggled behind you, when you were weary and exhasted; and he did not fear G-d. Therefore, when the Lord your G-d will relieve you of all your enemies around you, in the Land which the Lord your G-d gives you as a hereditary portion, you shall blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven. Do not forget!

Remember, do not forget, how you provoked the Lord your G-d to wrath in the desert.

Remember what the Lord your G-d did to Miriam on the way, as you came out of Egypt.

Remember the Shabbat day to sanctify it.
