Service of the heart


"We are instructed, as a mitzvah, to pray each day, as it is written, 'And you shall serve HaShem your Gd.'

"We have been taught that 'service' refers to prayer, as it is also written, 'to serve Gd with all of your hearts.' The sages commented: What kind of service is performed with the heart? That is prayer."

(Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Laws of Prayer 1:1)

Have a great day,
