In An Instant
Mincha on Erev Rosh Hashana is said in the very last minutes of the year. Yet in the Shemoneh Esrei of this final Mincha we pray that Hashem bless us this year even though all that is left of the year are just a few short minutes. This teaches us that every minute counts. Even in the last minute of the year, His salvation can come in an instant.
