    • Fortunately, God provides an awesome translation service. We pray best we can, and the Holy Spirit translates into God-talk. When we try to talk French, they tend to have bad attitudes and pretend not to understand. On the other hand God is delighted when we try to say his name. Remember that Hebrew itself was completely lost and no one knows exactly how it was spoken, but you could contact a Messianic Jew and ask them. I’m sure that would be an interesting experience.
