Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

If a person is worthy, Hashem grants his desires, without him needing to ask for them.  We learn elsewhere that Tefillah is an end in itself, not merely a means of acquiring needs (there are needs in order to necessitate Tefillah) – so why is precluding the need to ask considered something advantageous?

One thought on “Eruvin 54 – עירובין נד

  1. Rashi explains here:
    זכה. אם יש לו מזל טוב תאות לבו נתת לו שבעוד שהוא מתאוה באה לו תאותו עד שלא ישאלנה: לא זכה. צריך להתמקמק ולהצטער:
    It seems from Rashi that this is not a matter of Zechus, but rather that if he is lucky he doesn’t have to ask and if not he will have to wait.

    In Maseches Taanis we find that טרם יקרא ואני אענה means that as soon as you utter the Tefilla it gets answered. But it seems that this is not the point of our Gemara.
