Channakah (2); Praying For Miracles

Guest post by Rabbi Shloime Pollak

The Ram"a in 682;1 tells us, if we forget to say "Al Hanissim", we should say it in form of a prayer, and say it among the "Harachamon".

We should say, הרחמן הוא יעשה לנו ניסים, כמו שעשה לאבותינו, בימים ההם בזמן הזה. The Mishnah Brurah adds a Nusach that should be said at the end of Shmonah Esrei. In both cases, we are asking Hashem to perform for us miracles, as he did in the time of the Chashmenoim.

However, many Achronim assume, we are not allowed to pray for a "Ness".  It is included, in "Tfilas Shav"...
