More thoughts from the class on Why we pray?
Service to G-d is activity.
Those words of prayer are just words.
When I put the feelings and the emotions into those words of prayer I speak those words come alive within me and those around me.
Prayer is the service of the heart.
G-d doesn’t need to how great HE is. We have to know how great G-d is.
If you are not willing to put the work into prayer you will not get the benefit from prayer.
I want to pray.
I want to be there to communicate with G-d.
If prayer becomes a religious obligation you are lost. You will not enter into the gate of prayer if you are not focused on what you are praying about and the meaning of the words of the prayer you are speaking.
Every minute you invest into the study of prayer this is an investment for a lifetime.
