Why do so many people have difficulty finding excitement in their daily prayers? Prayer is an expression of a relationship with our Creator that is built on foundations. When these foundations are in place, prayer will naturally flow. However, if they are lacking, even if a person understands every word of the tefillah, daily prayer will tend to be like a foreign implant in his busy life. 

Living Tefillah was designed to help its readers discover how our everyday life contains a goldmine of opportunities that can help us to develop and nurture an intimate relationship with our Creator, which will awaken new life within our prayers.

The book also addresses fundamental questions which can potentially make it challenging to give tefillah the respect that it deserves. Some of these questions include:   

 

  • How can we expect to stay excited about our prayers when we often don’t see a direct relationship between what we pray for and what we receive? We often seem to get things that we didn’t pray for, we don’t always get what we do pray for, and we see that people who don’t pray at all also seem to find great success in their lives. 
  • Does tefillah really help? After all, if one deserves something, surely Hashem will give it to him, and if he doesn’t deserve it, why would simply asking Hashem make a difference?
  • Since the Torah expects us to trust Hashem that everything that He does is for the best, how at the same time are we expected to pray to Him to change what He is going to do? 

The goal of this book is to help us grasp the deeper message which is veiled behind our daily prayer, and to bring our lives to a state in which tefillah is enthusiastically embraced as the priceless gift that it’s meant to be. 

Each chapter focuses on enhancing a specific aspect of our relationship with Hashem, which will naturally inspire a new breath of life within our tefillah, as well as a new spirit of happiness within our lives. The book also includes supplementary discussions at the end of each chapter which provide practical advice to assist readers in incorporating the book’s teachings into their everyday life. 

Book Description

Living Tefillah will help its readers discover how everyday life contains a goldmine of opportunities to enhance the quality of their relationship with Hashem — and awaken a new spirit of life within their daily tefillah

 

“I received Rav Mendel’s pleasant words which he has revealed regarding tefillah… It is my hope that he will continue to reveal the depths [of the Torah] to the Torah world also in other mitzvos, which are difficult to understand and not known to everyone…” [Translated from Hebrew]

Rav Shmuel Kamenetsky

 

“Rav Weiss’s new book brings the reader into the world of prayer and brings the prayer into the world of the reader, to elevate him to stand before Hashem properly as he speaks with his heart and not [merely] with his lips…” [Translated from Hebrew] 

Rav Avigdor Nebenzahl

 

“Rav Mendel Weiss’s book…is a groundbreaking work in helping us understand on a deep but clear and understandable level the true purpose of tefillah… It’s well worth it, for reading and rereading this book can change your life…”

Rav Noach Orlowek

 

“Rav Weiss gives guidance in how one can use one’s mind to open one’s heart to truly connect with the Creator. The author uses sound philosophy, short stories, and vignettes that can make tefillah relevant and vibrant… I recommend this work to those who wish to make their prayer a true service of the heart.”

Rav Zev Leff  

 

“I’ve never seen anything on tefillah like what Rav Mendel has written. To be sure, I’ve seen a lot of excellent works on prayer, but in my opinion, they all come after the fundamental, super-to-the-point ideas that Rav Mendel presents. I hope you’ll gain as much from this book as I have.”

Rav Chaim Rosenblatt , author of Why Do I Need to Learn Gemara?
