Pray Like Someone is Listening
Parashat Lekh Lekha

Dena Weiss

Listen Like Someone is Praying - Prayer can seem pointless. What exactly are we informing an omniscient God of?  And what for?  If God knows us, knows what we have and what we lack then what are we doing when we speak to God about our suffering and articulate our wants and needs?  In Parashat Lekh Lekha, God challenges Avraham, but also blesses him in innumerable ways.  Through reading God’s blessing closely, we can gain significant insight into what it means to be in communication with the Divine, both in asking God for what we lack and in thanking God for what we have.
