    Rav Yaakov Emden says that if all yidden would daven with kavana he gurantees that mashiach will come

    regarding Aleinu: (I always work backwards;))

    – keep in mind that your t’fillah is a gift and Aleinu is the wrapping. It’s all in the presentation…

    – one posuk always holds my attention: shelo ossonu k’goyey ha’aratzos v’lo somonu k’mishpachos ha’adama, shelo sum chelkeinu kahem v’goraleinu k’chol hamonom. Sheheim mishtachavim LOHEVEL VORIK u’mispalelim el k-l V’LO YOSHIA! V’ANACHNU korim! u’mishtachavim! u’modim! lifnei MELECH MALCHEI HAMLACHIM HAKADOSH BARUCH HU! she’hu noteh shomayim…

    I literally smirk to myself every time I say this posuk. It’s such a smug feeling :):) What a bunch of bumbling fools they are!

    Now don’t get me wrong- I am not this outstanding davener- this is just a posuk that always makes me take notice & helps me focus on the rest of ALEINU

    goody, mine was to say aleinu standing in one place, no guarantees about the siddur though.

    R’ Moshe said to help your concentration- try thinking of something new you saw in the world.

    what i like to do is imagine a throne in front of me and just speak to someone. dont just say the words, try to feel that your talking to G-D.emphasize when you say Atah so you should remember this

    Jax- one can never be too certain in this here CR ;). But for reasons of my own, I don’t think we know each other. Maybe know OF each other…

    now- back to davening- forward march!

    i once heard someone saying in front of the queen of england you cant have your hands in your pockets by davening everybody has their hands in their pockets. In front of a melech basar vedom al achas kama vekama Melech Malchei Homlochim HK”BH

    goody613: great point with hands in pockets!

    the only thing you may hold in your hand during davening, besides for a siddur, is a tissue! so that rule-halacha means no cell phones too!

    thanx MKY for reminding me about this. i saw in pathway to prayer by S’lach lanu that the Rosh writes he wishes there was a S’lach lanu for saying S’lach lanu w/o kavana. what a chutzpah it is to ask forgiveness and not mean it!

    #656790

    yup, we all do it!!

    #656791
