The need for prayer


"Rabbi Elazar said: Prayer has greater power than good deeds, for no one was greater in performing good deeds than Moshe Rabbeinu, and yet he was answered only when he prayed [to see the land of Israel], as it is written (Devarim 3), 'Do not continue to speak to me... Ascend to the top of the peak.'"

(Talmud, Berachot 33b)

Have a great day,
