Answer: He answers all prayers!
Question: If, for example, a person needs money to pay off his deficit with a bank, and he is as if unconsciously praying, is this situation of needing money already a prayer from the point of view of Kabbalah?
Answer: Of course. It is the disclosure of any desire.
Question: Suppose he takes a prayer book and begins to pray, to pray for money. Will money appear?
Answer: No. The Creator does not respond to such selfish requests. After all, a person will then think: “I have prayed and received, which means I should pray more.” It just means that the Creator does not let him go.
And if it seems to a person that he has received an answer, then this is also the Creator’s will that he would still think so.
Question: What if he is asking for money not for himself, not egotistically, can he get it?
Answer: I cannot imagine that. There are no prayers at all for fulfillments in our world.
Question: What about prayers for health?
Answer: This was invented later. Although, in principle, we need to pray only for getting closer to the Creator, and this is the fulfillment of all our desires.
