Answer: Prayer is a request in the heart when I raise my real request to the Creator. Like a child who cries to his mother although he does not even know who he is turning to. But he came out of her, he is connected with her, and he turns to her crying. And she hears him.
It is the same with us. We must turn to the Creator because we were born from Him; we fell from the quality of Bina into the quality of Malchut, and now we want to rise again into the quality of Bina. But we want to rise consciously!
This ascent will be called spiritual because we must rise above our egoistic desire (Malchut) into the qualities of the Creator (Bina). This is what we must do and ask for.
Question: If we must cry like babies to ask the Creator, then will we never grow up? Will we always be like children?
Answer: Of course. We will always be creatures and not the Creator. But we want to rise to the level of the Creator Himself. This is the purpose of our development. So, let’s try. He wants us to achieve this.
