Like A Babbling Child

One who reads the words of prayer with great devotion may come to see the lights within the letters, even though one does not understand the meaning of the words one speaks. Such prayer has great power; mistakes in reading are of no importance.

A father has young child whom he greatly loves. Even though the child has hardly learned to speak, his father takes pleasure in listening to his words.

(Maggid of Mezeritch)

First off, let me say "thank you." I appreciate this VERY much! :)

My comment is prayer is the tiny nerve that moves G-d's mighty hand.
