Davening Poem

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Davening is not a chore

Davening opens up every door

Davening is not relegated to a certain kind

Davening is simply speaking your mind

Talk to Hashem; He is waiting to hear

Because, to Hashem, YOU are very dear

There is nobody else in the universe but you

And your very own HaKadosh Baruch Hu

Yes, the Yetzer Hara will try to distract

But you must do whatever you can to stay intact

A broken heart, troubles, dismays or a fall

No matter, Your Father is there to answer your call

NEVER despair; no matter how problem ridden

Hashem is SO CLOSE even though He seems hidden

Stand strong. Stand proud. Stand tall

You are a a member of the best nation of all

Find the beauty in yiddishkeit, it's there for every Jew

No matter what happened in the past, you can always start anew

Things may sometimes seem cold, impossible and black

But soon, real soon, your tefillos will bring the good times back

Hashem is collecting each and every tear

And every tefillah that is sincere


Your Brother


  1. I just wanted to let you know that I had just spoken to a friend telling her how after almost a year of not davening, I am slowly starting to daven again. Your blog happens to be saved as a favorite and I accidentally clicked on the link..... low and behold I see the words "Davening Poem!" "The words NEVER despair; no matter how problem ridden... and ....No matter what happened in the past, you can always start anew" really spoke to me!!

  2. Anon-thanks so much! I'm so happy you liked it. Although I didn't write it myself, this poem has so much truth to it, I had to post it.
