Spiritual Tools-Transforming Study Into Prayer
It is also good to transform Torah into prayer; when you study Torah or hear a Torah discourse from a righteous person, make it into a prayer. Beseech and plead with God that you will merit the fulfillment of everything that was said in the discourse, for at present you perceive yourself as very far from it.
If you are wise and love truth, God will lead you in the way of truth, which will enable you to understand by analogy how to conduct yourself in this respect, so that your words will be gracious and your pleas properly presented, pacifying God so that He will draw you nearer to His service in truth.
The subject of this conversation, or prayer, rises to very great heights, for especially when you transform Torah into prayer you cause an exceedingly high degree of delight up above. (Likkutei Moharan II, 25)
“Our Father, merciful Father, Who acts mercifully, have mercy upon us, instill understanding in our hearts to understand and elucidate, to listen, learn, teach, safeguard, do, and fulfill all the words of Your Torah’s teaching with love.” “To do,” meaning, to transform our Torah study into prayer and service.
