Subject:  Shemona Esrei
Message:  Kavod HaRav- I learned that the Sh'lah says that when davening Shemona Esrei, one may- and should- include his own personal addition, and not just in rifa'ainu and shema kolainu. For example, when saying v'lamalshinim, one may insert before the end of the bracha his own tefila relating to the bracha in the siddur, like "HaShem please destroy our enemies, specifically ____.....". Is this truly permissible, and not only permissible, but preferable??? Thank you!
Reply:  Better to stick with the basic Text, and only on special occasions to add in Shema Koleinu or the specific Beracha (blessing) it relates to.
for many reasons.
