Scrutiny


Before the prayer of an individual enters to be crowned in its place, the Blessed Holy One scrutinizes it, gazes at it, and behold the sins and merits of the individual.  But this is not true of prayers of a congregation.  Many prayers are not from the righteous, but they still enter before the Blessed Holy One, and He does not look at their sins. ~ Zohar 1:234b (Tosefta)

The answer to yesterday’s “Identify that Prayer” is ויהי רצון from ברכות השחר
