The Request Must Be Collective

935The prayer must be a complete prayer, from the bottom of the heart. This means that one knows one hundred percent that there is no one in the world who can help him but the Creator Himself. (Baal HaSulam, Shamati 5, “Lishma Is an Awakening from Above, and Why Do We Need an Awakening from Below?”)

Prayer is considered real if it reaches the Creator. And it can reach Him only if the prayer comes from the depths of a person’s heart, from his most important inner desire, when he is one hundred percent sure that he can achieve what he wants only if the Creator helps him by practically doing all of it for him.

But there is one small “but” here and it is very important! The Creator responds only to a collective request.

You can shout to Him as much as you want, He will not be able to answer you. Because you have to go to Him through a common Kli (vessel)! Just as you were born and fell from the height of your spiritual level to the material one, egoistically breaking away from everyone, so now you must anti-egoistically rise again to the same place, to Him.

Therefore, the request must be collective. In no case will it help you to sit, cry, sob, and beg. It won’t do anything! Only if there are at least two people who, despite their egoism, somehow connect with each other to raise their request to the Creator, in this form it will help.
