The more I replay his speech in my mind the more I think he said and may he [i.e. the Rebbe] grant our requests without the words all of. I originally wrote that he said may he grant all of our requests but I think I may have incorrectly added the words all of.

Whatever he meant even if he just meant may the Rebbe answer our requests for brochos is still interesting. Last night, I found a video of him speaking to the 5771 conference of shluchos and he opens by saying I would like to begin my remarks with hakoras hatov to the Aibishter for His kindness, to the Rebbe for his brochos, and to those that made this evening and this kinus, etc... Im not used to hearing frum Yidden speak like this. I'm used to hearing frum Yidden thank the Aibishter for His brochos. I found on another thread a post by Yankel Nosson where he brings a quote of the Rebbe which says that a brocho from his father-in-law is a "promise" and that we should demand from the Rebbe that he fulfill his promise. Maybe this sicha is a key to understanding the quote may he grant our requests?

This is the meaning of " "--that the Yid has the power to "make His will your will". What the tzaddik wants, this will be what Hashem wants.

Many times in chumash Moshe Rabbeinu causes Hashem to conduct Himself differently--Hashem's will follows Moshe Rabbeinu's will. Why? Because Hashem decided that a Jew has this power!

Quote:
There are people here who spent last Simchas Torah together with the Rebbe, and there are people here who received blessings and promises from the Rebbe. (The fact is that the blessings, too, are promises, for the Rebbe once said, "My request is a directive."[275] This of course applies not only down here but also Above. A blessing from the Rebbe, which is a request addressed to the Holy One, blessed be He,[276] is thus (as it were) a directive to Him,[277] and hence it is a promise.) So let those people take a little mashke, and picture the Rebbe's face, and say LeChaim to the Rebbe. And let them request of him, or even demand of him, that his blessings and promises be fulfilled.

Was it Moshe Rabbeinu's will to "die on the mountain" and not to enter the Land?

Yes.

"...the reason he was not allowed into Eretz Yisrael depended on the people at large and not on his own personal self. Nevertheless, rather than leave his flock in the desert and seek his own personal fulfillment, he remained in the desert together with them."

Do you take this to mean that the Tzadik Hador runs the world?

Is the Tzadik Hador's will really Hashem's will so that
" really means that Hashem decrees and He listens to Himself?

A Tzaddik is completely bound to Hashem, Kal Vachomer! The Tazadik HaDor. The Avos were called a merkava to the point that the sefirah of Chesed wanted to destroy Avraham because he fulfilled the level of Chesed on a higher level then the chesed itself.

Is this so hard to grasp? That a Jew, a tzadik, the nosi hador had such a high connection with Hashem?

Bored by the stiff-necked hisnagdus. All inyonim have been asked and answered.

To bring the light of chassidus into this thread of darkness

The Rebbe Rashab says in a maamar one of the things accomplished during Shemonei Esrei is that we are able to change Hashems will.

It is Hashems will that a Jew is sick and we pray and ask Hashem to change his will to "Rofeh Cholei Amo Yisroel"

If a Jew with simple kavanah can change Hashems will then only a fool would not request that a Tzaddik and the Tzaddik HaDor should request/pray to Hashem which will automatically change the will of Hashem

ie: Moshe Rabbeinu at the Chet HaEgel

There is a Moshe in every generation.

The End.

Indeed. The automatically is superflous.

Machnisei Rachamim - Can we make requests of angels?

There have been great tzaddikim who have been able to command angels. However, making a request of an angel implies that the angel has freewill to either grant or not grant our requests, otherwise our requests would be meaningless.

Can we make requests of angels? If so, why would one do it?

Making/commanding them to be shluchim or requesting/asking them to be shluchim?
