Should we pray like a child - pray to please God? What approach should we take to prayer? How should we prepare for Tefilla?
Tefilla is an act where, on the face of things, we talk to God. However, when we look deeper into the Tefilla, it is actually an act where we talk to ourselves, and not try to "change" God's opinion.
Are we allowed to make personal requests during Tefilla? How does it work? Can God answer our prayers directly? Is that the correct focus for Tefilla?
