Pray tell

The 72nd chapter of Psalms ends with “… and let the whole earth be filled with his glory…The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.”

R. Levi –Yitzchok from Berditchev used to say when referring to this verse that all the prayers ever uttered by Jews throughout the generations have asked for the same thing: that Hashem’s presence in the world become obvious. And when this finally takes place, when His glory is revealed, then there will not be a need for our prayers.
