I wonder if among the new wave of Talmidei haRambam, there might be anyone using a siddur that uses Rambam's language of prayer exclusively, as recorded in the Mishneh Torah (here).

Are you looking to find a Rabbi who does/recommends this, or just the knowledge that someone, somewhere, decided to do this? – Double AA Oct 21 '13 at 16:16
It is my understanding that the Rambam's Seder HaTefila is similar to the Yemenite Nusach. – Gershon Gold Oct 21 '13 at 16:43
I pray this way. – MoriDoweedhYaa3qob Oct 21 '13 at 20:25
It seems you have an answer, Izmargadi: Mori (see just above) prays this way. Is that what you were seeking? I mean, does that answer your question? cc @DoubleAA – msh210 Oct 22 '13 at 5:32
@MoriDoweedhYa3gob Which Siddur do you use? – Tamir Evan Oct 22 '13 at 10:25

There is such a siddur, first published in 2006 and arranged by Gil Kobrin/Amminadav, who operates a printing press called Derushah Publications.

It's called Siddur Mesorath Moshe, and was, as the arranger noted, "drawn from the liturgical arrangement found in the legal code of our teacher and master Moses b. Maimon (Maimonides), in the appendix entitled "Arrangement of the Prayer" of the second book of the Mishneh Torah, Sefer Ahavah."

Here is a pdf of that siddur. I haven't been able to find any haskamot or even public awareness of this siddur, besides the Yemenite Jewish forum linked above, but this at least shows there is contemporary evidence of talmidei HaRambam following the Rambam's language of prayer.

I would also like to point out that this siddur is 1000% better than sia7 yarusholayeem or and other ticlal out at the moment. – MoriDoweedhYaa3qob Oct 23 '13 at 4:24
@MoriDoweedhYaa3qob & Aryeh Does any of you happen to have the PDF? The link doesn't work anymore. – Adám Jan 15 '15 at 15:15
