Vacationing at sea, a successful Jewish businessman was diligent to recite his daily prayers and inquired of the captain which direction was eastward.

The pointlessness of prayer! G-d who knows of all things even beforev they are conceived, needs no prayers of thankfulness. Of much more benefit would be the same prayer-time being used to help ones fellow man in making his way through an often troubled world. This would make our good Lord smile more appreciatively, for at last he would see that his creation is finally "getting" what he meant in the first place. Reply
