This verse is the 5778th Verse in the Torah. Kabbalistically, there is a connection between the year and verse number that relates to that number.
This verse relates to any person whose name starts with a Aleph and ends in a Mem Sofit. The Kabbalah teaches that every verse in the Tanach speaks to every person in every generation. It also explains that when a verse from the Tanach starts with a Hebrew letter and ends with a Hebrew letter that is the same as your Name when spelled with Hebrew Letters is an indication that this verse has special significance to that person. It is recommended that one speak this verse each day at least three times each day. Once in the evening, once in the morning, and once in the afternoon. There is a specific location in the prayer known as the Amidah - standing prayer which is said 3 times a day in the Orthodox and Conservative traditions. If not just say the verse with a preceding Leshem Yichud.
One can find discussion of the Leshem Yichud on the yeshshem website.

There is a prophecy in the Zohar that there will be no Torah left in the world. This verse has that potential. Since the Kabbalah Center has caused a spread of the teachings of the Zohar that prophecy will not manifest. In the potential, if that spread of the Zohar had not taken place the year 5778 might have been the destruction of the last Torah Scroll - Chas V'Shalom.
