contents - what prayer is, the names of God used in the New Rite



Gnomen 1 - Our Creator, Blessed is He and Blessed is His name forever, has no need for mankind’s prayers nor has He need for anything in all His creation, for in Him nothing is lacking that it need be fulfilled in Him. God, Almighty is not greatened or lessened by our prayers or by our service to Him in any way. For us is the privilege and the benefit in serving Him and in praying to Him by day and by night.

Gnomen 2We need prayer, not the Lord, our God. We need help. We need His blessing. To us, mankind, has been given the privilege to call to Him, to praise Him and to beseech of Him to answer to our requests. We have need of His protection and His salvation and His intervention when danger assails us. It is we who have need to feel His closeness and His Presence. It is we who have to gain from Him, not He from us.

Gnomen 3 - Is there a greater privilege than that of communication with the Lord, our God, the Creator of the universe!

Gnomen 5 - In order to speak with Him, He allowed that names referring to Him be used in calling to Him. From the beginning He revealed certain names by which He could be called. For, in truth, there is no name in which God may be contained and He, in His absolute perfection, needs no name. In communicating with mankind, however, how might they call to Him if He revealed to them no name in which to be called. Early mankind called Him EL and EL SHADDAI and selected persons knew other names which were later revealed in the Torah.

Gnomen 6 The Holy Torah represents the Great Book of Communication between God Almighty, the Holy One of Israel and His chosen people, Israel, in merit of the promises made by EL SHADDAI to the Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. And to Moses, magister noster, was revealed the most intimate level of communication ever reached between God and man, direct spoken communication, in words that can be written down and comprehended by all. But all Israel heard the voice of God declaring the words of the first two commandments. The great importance of the Prophets of Israel lies in the fact that they represented the continued dialogue between God and Israel. A high and close level of communication between God and Israel, by way of the Prophets (of which there
