Ashrei is a special prayer formed from three different psalms. The main body is Psalm 145 and there are verses added from Psalms 84 and 144. Ashrei contains words of recognition praising G-d, Who prepares sustenance for all living beings. It is written in the order of the Alef-Beis, which is the order of the entire universe. This Psalm represents the belief that all is in its proper order as divined by Hashem (Reb Tzadok, Tzidkas HaTzadik 208).
