My comment on a post by Shifra Hendrie of Geula Connections on Facebook is a bit of truth for our time, IMO. It matters when we pray traditional Jewish prayers in a siddur. It matters because it connects us with our heritage in Torah and in history.
It also matters very much that we recognize the power and value of our Jewish personal prayers, spoken aloud in our own language. Wherever we are, whatever we say, we are contributing in our own way to Jewish history. The galus is part of geula.
Hesitating because we are not sure how to do it right, or that we may sound silly is not clear thinking. Those thoughts are coming from the enemy of our soul. Of COURSE our Almighty God wants to hear from us and waits for us to speak. He made us and he wants us to take our part in Jewish history, right where we are, exactly how we are in this very moment.
This is the truth of bringing geula, in my personal opinion today.
