One must meditate and pray to God in his native language. This is how prayer began. The main form of prayer was an expression of the heart before God in each individual’s own words…Even though we follow the order of worship ordained by the Great Assembly, personal prayer, as it originally existed, is still the most beneficial. ~ R’ Nachman of Breslov based on the Rambam
Don’t be shy. Next time you are alone, talk to Hashem.
Thank Him for everything you have and ask Him for everything you need!
