09 Jul Prayer Tools-Three Weeks-Languages of Exile
“Open your heart to God and tell Him your worries in any language you choose. Since you possess the right to petition Him, why remain inarticulate (Michtevei haRav Chafetz Chaim, page 96)!”
During the Three Weeks, when we mourn being in exile, we must remember that exile has taught us many languages, and therefore empowers us to express our prayers in those languages. It would seem that we are more empowered to speak in any language in prayer during the Three Weeks then in any other period of the year!
