A Pashuta Yid–thank you for starting this thread!!!
Before tefilla was formalized that is what we yidden did.
It’s part of our spiritual DNA and I think that’s why it feels so good.
I once heard in a shiur for women, that if a woman could get in the habit of talking to Hashem about everything, even before she cooks, or goes to take carpool, or goes out to work, or is about to go shopping, it will infuse her day with meaning. She should talk to Hashem and ask for siyata dishmaya in every part of her day.
This could obviously apply to all elements of a man’s day as well. Talking to Hashem constantly- can be lifechanging, and makes a person feel that Hashem is a reality in their lives.February 20, 2009 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm #978688APushetaYidParticipant

The late gaon Louis Finkelstein, zt”l, used to say “When I pray, I speak to G-d, but when I learn, G-d speaks to me.”
I think the concept of hitbodedut is very important. Unless a person can speak to G-d like a parent or a friend, they don’t have an intimate relationship with G-d.October 13, 2013 4:24 am at 4:24 am #978691rationalfrummieMember
Talking to Hashem using your own words and experiences is really important. Even the text of the siddur itself should be a jumping off point for connecting to Hashem and relating the tefillah to your own life.

If you look at his life and work, he taught at JTS, but didn’t adhere to that movement’s ideology (think Lieberman and Dimitrovsky, both of whom none other than R’ MM Schneersohn held of). Times changed for the worst.October 14, 2013 12:09 am at 12:09 am #978693the-art-of-moiParticipant

I talk to Hashem all day long! Hashem, please help me find the spatula. Hashem, thank you for sending the carpool on time. And even, Hashem, please help me have kavana in davening 🙂October 14, 2013 4:33 pm at 4:33 pm #978696streekgeekParticipant
