TEFILLAH: Which means PRAYER
Ever use prayer as nothing more than an emergency call or a cold call to God?
Pray only when we need or want something from God?
– It is understandable that we are inclinded to do that, considering the English word “pray” means to “ask or beg”. But the Hebrew word for prayer – tefillah – means to “self evaluate”.
So to the Jews of the Bible, prayer was not a time when they asked God for things … it was a time when they examined themselves.
They would use prayer as a way to compare their actions, behavior and attitude against God’s holiness.
