Greatness of Tefillah

“Rabbi Elazar said: Tefillah is greater than good deeds” (Brachos 32b). We have already seen ourselves how much we can gain from our daily Tefilos – the yearning of the soul to connect to Hashem, its humility before Him, along with the recognition of His Greatness, the praise and thanks to His name, and, of course, the trust in Him for all our needs. All of these are the foundations of the Soul, and thus makes Tefillah the most conspicuous from all our good deeds.
