Man’s Dialogue with the Creator

239Prayer is an appeal to the Creator, which is called raising MAN, (female waters), that is, the burning desire of a person, which he raises from himself to the Creator. Of course, then the Creator will be able to answer his request.

Prayer is a genuine request of a person to the Creator, the Creator waits for it and answers. Prayer is a person’s connection with the Creator.

Do not think that prayer is inherent only to man. The still, vegetative, and animate nature in their existence are constantly in prayer. But their prayers are organically part of nature because it is known in advance what a stone, plant, or some animal will want. Therefore, their desire does not need a special expression; it acts automatically.

Whereas a person is obliged to work on his prayer, and therefore he is given free will. To the extent that a person organizes his prayer in accordance with what the Creator wants to give him, to that extent he will succeed and establish a mutual connection with the Creator: “I am for my Beloved, and my Beloved is for me.”

The Creator prepares an answer for a person in advance and thereby awakens him to prayer. The person must search and find with which prayer to appeal in order to give the Creator the opportunity to answer and help him. Then there is a mutual connection between them in the form of: “I am for my Beloved, and my Beloved is for me.”

The moment we ask, the Creator is already helping us, and even earlier because when He awakens us to turn to Him, He already helps us with this, as it is said: “Just call, and I will answer.”
