Praying with joy


"The root of prayer is in heartfelt joy in one's relationship with Gd, as it is written (Divrei haYamim I 7:10), 'Praise His holy Name; may the heart of those who seek Gd be glad.' This is why David, king of Israel, played his lyre in all of his prayers and songs - in order to fill his heart with joy in his love of Gd."

(R' Yehudah haChasid, Sefer Chasidim 18)

Have a great day,
