This week it hit me - there's not much on the web or on bookshelves in bookstores about Jewish personal prayer. I began to wonder why that is... And my wondering led me to interviewing Jewish leaders in various streams, and to writing about Jewish personal prayer on the web. Yes! It's a wonderful, custom-made task for me.
The interviews are proving to be very fascinating, as are discussions in Facebook groups. I wrote the following comment to someone's question about what prayer book to get, posted in a Jewish group -
These are all excellent suggestions for getting started in Jewish prayer. I have one more humble suggestion involving Jewish personal prayer. Ask Hashem for guidance regarding the many resources available to you on Jewish prayer. Write out your prayers to Hashem and/or speak them out loud. I am amazed at the clarity with which Jewish personal prayer opens up options for me, and equally important, closes doors that are open but not necessarily useful to me at this time.
My Jewish personal prayer adventures are growing in depth and breadth!
