What is Likutey Tefilot?
Likutey Tefilot is a collection of personal prayers composed by Reb Noson of Breslov (1780-1844), the leading disciple of the outstanding Chassidic luminary, Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (1772-1810). The Hebrew original of Likutey Tefilot consists of two parts containing 152 and 58 prayers respectively — a total of 210 prayers.
Rebbe Nachman taught that besides reciting the mandatory daily prayer services contained in the siddur, we should supplement them with our own individual prayers. In Likutey Tefilot, Reb Noson made his personal prayers available to us to use at our discretion in our own sessions of private prayer. Likutey Tefilot is not a book to read through for information. The prayers were written to be said rather than read. This is an inspirational text for use when we wish to reach out to God and express our personal needs and spiritual yearnings — whether at home, in the synagogue, in the office, in a quiet park or out in the countryside.
