G-d made a covenant with Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya’akov. A covenant is permanent. It cannot be change. The only way a covenant can be abolished is that both sides agree to end it. The circumstances can change yet the covenant is irrevocable and unchanging.
This means for their future generations for all time. This means we Jews are forever are part of the covenant that G-d made with our forefathers Avraham, Yitz’chak, and Ya’akov.
Prayer is not just my communication with G-d. My prayers are built on that covenant that G-d made with our forefathers.
Many times, I do not live up to what G-d expects me to do. I fall short.
When I talk to G-d I am not just standing before you with all my faults and failures. I am standing before HaShem as a descendant of Avraham, Yitz’chak, and Ya’akov.
It is not just about me. It is about the covenant you made with them.
