The Rabbi’s Prayer
Chaim Rosenberg, the rabbi’s son once inquired, "Daddy, I notice every Shabbos morning, before you give your sermon, you kiss the aron that houses all of the Torah scrolls. What are you doing?"
Rabbi Rosenberg explained, "I'm davening to Hashem, that he should let me give a good sermon."
“Hmm,” Chaim thought. “So Hashem doesn’t always answer our prayers?”
