Answer: Meditation is prayer.
Question: Are meditation and prayer the same in Kabbalah?
Answer: Of course. What is meditation? It is an in-depth focus of attention, checking yourself, determining where you are regarding a certain property, and so on. It is the same as prayer.
In practice, there is nothing but prayer. The correct preparation for prayer is when you definitely feel your condition, feel the higher force, understand what the relationship between you is, and what you have to do to get closer to it.
