When you add to the shmoneh esrai, do you articulate words or just think thoughts? (eg do you actually say the words “please send a refuah shleimah for Avraham ben Sarah” or do you simply think those words or about that individual??

From a R YBS letter dated in 1956 found in Chakira Volume 32 the Rav states he was unable to come to Eretz Yisrael during the winter due to teaching commitments but he would try to come the following summer.
The paragraph concludes with: “Ani tefilla vgam tchina ki evra vereh et haaretz hatova.” (me – I can’t help but cry, don’t wait until it’s too late.)
