Repetition Makes Perfect

In Tefillah, we repeat the same words, day after day, over and over again. The reason for this repetition is in order for us to become more aware of the great truths that we are saying, and get closer and closer to Hashem.

The Chovos Halevavos says, “Your mind follows your words” (Sha’ar Cheshbon Hanefesh, Cheshbon 9). Each time you say these great truths, you’re making it more and more real to yourself, and you’re making yourself more and more an איש שלם, a perfect, complete, whole person.
