As we approach the holiest day of the year, I ask myself as I have all week long, what should I ask for.
In the Tefilla (prayer) of Musaf we say in אוחילהן ….לאדם מערכי לב ומה׳ מענה לשון.
“It is for man to arrange his feelings, but eloquent speech is a G-dly gift.
ה׳ שפתי תפתח ופי יגיד תהלתך
My Lord, open my lips, that my mouth may declare Your praise”
I cannot put into words all that we need to ask Hashem for, all I can do is Daven to You Hashem to arrange my inner most feelings and compose them into a tune that is pleasing to You. One that You will hear and listen too. One that will open the gates of Geula (Redemption), Refuah (Healing), Rachamim (Mercy), Bracha (Blessing), Parnassah (Livelihood).
What I can do this Yom Kippur is present to You, Hashem, a Book of Merits, Tefillos (prayers) that were performed on behalf of Benny, Binyomin Chaim Ben Faigie Sarah that we share with all the Cholim (ill) in need of a Refuah Shlema. Look at the Ahavas Yisroel, the cohesiveness of one Nation, the Chessed of being performed around the clock for one another. Mi Keamcha Yisroel!
