Proper language for Jewish prayers?

Are prayers always in Hebrew, or is it acceptable to use the vernacular? More specifically, I'm writing a Russian Jew at Chanukah: when lighting the candles, would she say the blessing in Hebrew or in Russian? (Or, well, she's polylingual, so English is a possibility, too.)
