Have you ever wondered how to conduct a Personal Prayer to God. Rabbi Lazer Brody from Breslev Israel just released a new video called Personal Prayer. The new YouTube video talks about how to do Personal Prayer. We were able to get a hold of Akiva Ben-Ezra from Breslev Israel and ask him a few question:
What is the purpose of your new YouTube video called Personal Prayer to Dear God?
Akiva: The Purpose of the video is get the message out to the world that God accepts all kinds of prayers. It doesn’t have to be a prayer that is written in the bible God accepts our own personal prayers each and ever day. It dose not matter if we are a righteous man or a wicked man God wants to hear our prayers.
In the video you mention the pure and innocent prayers of children what do you mean?
Akiva:There are a lot of traggidies in the world today. The children teach us there is another way instead of violence. God accepts our prayers.
How can a person do personal prayer?
Akiva: I would suggest take 5 minutes a day and go to a quite spot somewhere with no distractions and just start speaking to God. Do this everyday and after a week try 10 minutes a day . This is the best way to conduct a personal prayer.
