The Prayer Draws Us up to God

Angela W. Buchdahl  |  May 14, 2020

Listen to Recording

Mantra: Tefilah=Prayer, Think, Entreat, Judge
Source: “The primary purpose of prayer is not to make requests. The primary purpose is to praise, to sing, to chant. Because the essence of prayer is a song, and man cannot live without a song. Prayer may not save us. But prayer may make us worthy of being saved.” ― Abraham Joshua Heschel, Moral Grandeur and Spiritual Audacity Also: Praying is a Form of Thinking from Communings of the Spirit: The Journals of Mordecai M. Kaplan, 1913-1934
