Positive Mitzvah 5
This is not an error of duplication. The full-fledged version of this Mitzvah are many and change for those who are learning the one/three chapter a day. The Message for the day from "Bringing Heaven Down to Earth" at the end of this Mitzvah is different than that of yesterday.Positive Mitzvah 5: Worshiping G-d - "Prayer"
Exodus 23:25 "And you shall serve the L-rd, your G-d"
Imagine a magnificent palace with servants always ready to serve the king. Some stand by his throne, others bring him food, and, still others, tailor his velvet robes.
This service is fit for a king.
HaShem is the King of all kings! He does not ask us to perform these types of service, but rather instructs us to serve Him through Prayer Tefillah.
As subjects of our King, we express our dedication and loyalty by offering our praise and making our requests through prayer.
When you come to a place that seems outside of G-d's realm, too coarse for light to enter, and you want to run away...
Know that there is no place outside of G-d, and rejoice in your task of uncovering Him there.
