Prayer Skills-Terumah-Accessing the Highest Mysteries
Human prayer is the service of the spirit. Although people do not realize it, it involves the highest mysteries, even when they do not understand. We learn from the Tabernacle that prayers split through the atmosphere, through all firmaments, open all doors, and ascend on high. (Zohar, II:201a)
It is essential when praying to be aware that even without our understanding of the mechanisms, we are able to pierce the heavens all the way to the highest places. It is appropriate to meditate before prayer on this power of prayer.
