Parashat Eikev – Prayers like Flames

He is your praise and your G-d, Who performed for you these great and awesome deeds that you saw with your own eyes. (Deuteronomy 10:21)

“He is your praise and your G-d”—this means that G-d Himself is your praise and prayer.

Sometimes your prayers become like flames. The words flow from your lips with burning devotion, touching your deepest emotions. At this time G-d’s own light is inside you, beckoning you to draw near. Your deep feelings are a spark of G-d’s Own Essence (Rebbe Nachman Sichot HaRan #52).

The ultimate goal of prayer is for a person’s words to become encompassed in G-d, so that the prayer and G-d become one (Likutei Moharan II: 19: 2
