תפילת יחיד | Tefillat yaḥid: a prayer for when praying by oneself, by David Zvi Kalman

Contributed on: 20 Mar 2011 by David Zvi Kalman |

God and God of my forefathers and foremothers, as I stand here in an innermost room and pray, so too should you in an innermost room heed my questions, my praises and my requests, both from the utterances of my mouth and the utterances of my heart. Even if I am silent, you will know that my tefilla is directed towards you, who is One and whose name is One, alone in all the worlds. My heart is awake and my voice knocks. Open for me, my Lord, my Perfect One, the gates of Tefilla. . . .
