Prayer for Lefties

Question
What arm should a lefty use for Tachanun? What arm should a lefty use when striking the heart during the Amidah and Vidui? Thank you.
Answer

Rav Moshe Feinstein writes that a lefty should use both hands. Striking ones heart should be done with the hand that is most comfortable. Rabbi Yitzchak Grinblat
