Post Tefila
on: June 5, 2013, 11:39 PM

Hi everyone!
I was listening to a Shiur from Rabbi Akiva Tatz and he said such an interesting story about Tefila.
There was a lady whose son had a brain tumor. She came to a big Chasidish Rebbe begging the Rebbe to daven for her son. The Rebbe said to her, before I daven for your son I need to ask you one question, if you would know for sure 100% that it was Hashem's Ratzon thet your son would pass away would you be able to accept it? The lady thought about it for a long time and then finally said, yes if I knew 100% that this was Hashem's Ratzon I would be able to accept it.
OK said the Rebbe now we could Daven.

It is a nice story I'm not sure if I get it 100% though. I understand that that shows she has Emunah... but how is that directly related to Davening?

When one Davens it has to be from a place that the person that all that Hashem does is for the best. If one Davens because she wants something and doesn't really care what Hashem thinks is best then it is not a true Tefillah.

Speaking of Tefillah, I am on a search for a very good sefer on Tefillah!
Anyone have any suggestions of a sefer that really helped change their davening?
All suggestions are welcome, and I am specifically looking for a sefer not necessarily with explanation of words but rather more conceptual, (but still not for someone new to Tefilah, as BH i grew up frum and have always been davening, I just feel like its becoming routine to me and I need to change something about it)
I can do hebrew, but I prefer english.

I like Artscrolls English translated siddur with the bit of English commentary on the bottom. I learned a lot from it.

yaeli: Rav Schwab on tefilla is really amazing and so is "Twerski on Prayer" and "Praying with Joy". I'm not done all of them, but so far they all really helped my tefilla! Hatzlocha! For an amazing Hebrew sefer that gives great perspectives on tefilla and totally changed my view of davening, try "Shearim B'tefilla".

If u are willing to do herbrew try sh'arim betifila by reb shimshon pincus zatzal. It's incredible and insightful and very down to earth.

"Praying With Fire" - I think they have a few books out.
