In this fascinating and powerful video, Rabbi Dr Akiva Tatz outlines the point of prayer. Explaining that “prayer is not designed to change God, but to change you” (1:19), Rabbi Tatz describes the meditative effect of prayer on yourself. Like an employee asking for a better wage from his boss, ourselves - like the employee - need to show God not just that we need it, but that we are better people and thus deserve it more. In this way, to really know ourselves, we need to really know what we deeply desire.
