Excellent Series - Thank you!

Thank you Rebbetzin Lori for making these very meaningful messages about prayer. Though I pray during the High Holidays and speak with the Almighty, I often wonder myself, when I ask for something, it seems that the Almighty is answering no to my request. I'm still wondering why. What, if anything, am I doing wrong. I don't seem to understand why. Perhaps I am not praying properly, or perhaps not enough. Thank you for making me ponder these questions and making me want to pray more.

How we ask is important.

I Love #2 Alans' comment when the waiter says "Is anything right?" Have seen that happen several times at tables in restaurants. And Lori saying "This isn't hot enough....I don't want the fries for the side, I want........". That isn't asking that is demanding and complaining. Andgenerally there is no compromise, they will accept only exactly what they are demanding. Would they speak to G-d in that way when they are 'asking' him for something? . - - - - - - - - - - - When we pray to G-d certainly we can request or ask anything. But would we demand he give us exactly what we are asking for? How we ask especially in prayer is as important as what we ask for, isn't it?

So True

I believe this wholeheartedly. He does hear us, all we need do is ask and if you don't get what we want, it is for the BEST. Thank you, Lori.

very meaningful

thanks, lori. very meaningful message. we just gotta remember not ONLY to turn to G-d with requests. praising and thanking Hashem is also a huge part of building this relationship. If G-d DOES grant our requests, we have to remember that HE is the One who gave it to us. It's a challenge, but we must try to constantly thank Hashem for the small things!

Dearest Lory This is the first time i do not agree with you, telling the people that you rather be Israeli after you just became american is not very sage i hope that they do not listen to this video. Beeing Israeli is not important,beeing jewish is even if you live in Israel.Best regards Judith
