Pray for Mashiah on Rosh Hashana
I found this on both the Kol Tzofayich newsletter (page 4, bottom-right corner) by Rav Shmuel Eliyahu and the Kol Emunim newsletter (page 4, top-left corner) by Shomrei Emunim Hasidim - 2 very different groups and quoting different people, but saying pretty much the same Devar Torah, so it must be true. I will paraphrase it:
It says in Shemuel Alef 20:27:
Using Rabbinic license, this is referring to someone who was asking near the end of the second day of Rosh Hashana, and everyone was fervently praying for 2 days straight. One who witnesses this comes to ask Hashem, "Hashem, we've been praying with such concentration for 2 days straight - why has the son of Yishai - i.e. Mashiah - not come either yesterday or today?"
The answer is because "אל הלחם" - those who prayed were only praying for their bread - i.e. for their Parnassa, not for Mashiah's coming or the end of the exile of the Shechina. This is why Mashiah hadn't come.
This year, let us make an effort to make the focus of our Rosh Hashana prayers on Mashiah coming this year. When that problem is resolved, all our other problems will disappear.
