Lachash is a quiet, whispering prayer (like the whispering of forms of incantation in Isaiah 3.3); it is when sorrow renders you speechless in the long run of life; you are out of words, empty and exhausted, and a consciousness of sin crushes so completely, that a man does not dare to address God aloud. It is a time so intense, you hiss your words.

Isaiah chapter 29, verse 4,

4  And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.

Sometimes a whisper is all you can utter. 

God hears even the most quiet whisper!

When you are empty and spent, there are no more words, then whisper a lachash!
