Subject:  Tehillim
Message:  you mentioned that saying tehillim as a way of curing people is prohibited. how did this custom of saying a quick round of tehilliim in shuls begin? how are the gedolei hador sanctioning it without telling the hamon am that they should only say it if they have in mind to do teshuva?
Reply:  The Vilna Gaon (Gr"a) was very carefull about this and told anyone and everyone who asked. It's in the book "Maaseh Rav." The question really is, "did they listen?"
