Rabbinic thoughts on prayer

“He who prays within his house surrounds it with a wall that is stronger than iron.”

“If a man says his prayers, as if to get through a set task, that is no prayer.”

“God says to Israel, pray in the synagogue of your city; if you cannot, pray in the field; if you cannot, pray in your house; if you cannot, pray upon your bed; if you cannot, commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.”
