Was he implying that people did not daven when there was nevu'ah? If
so, then I do not think that this is correct. After all, weren't
Shachris, Mincha, and Maariv established by the Avos? Weren't the
first 3 brachos of bentching establish while there was still
nevu'ah? Didn't Dovid compose a lot of Tehillim? Weren't Torah
brochos established from the time the Torah was given.
All of these and more are dialog with HaShem.
My impression is that the Anshei Keneses ha'Gdolah formalized some
things, but did not create something new.
