Hashem heals the heartbroken and binds up their sadness
"One should always praise the Creator and then pray"
That shows us, that one must believe that when a person reaches the state, in which he feels that his failures in the work of the Creator are increasing, he feels that his Emunah (Faith) is not as it should be, this is having the ability to believe that the Creator is Benevolent.
And this feeling arises, when he sees that he cannot thank the Creator and sincerely say: Blessed be He who said: "May there be a world " that is, this person enjoys this world so much, that he thanks the Creator for having created the world, so that he has something to enjoy.
If he does not feel the good and the pleasure that there is to receive, it is difficult for him to be grateful for it, and it hurts him not to be able to praise the Creator for the world He has created, and sincerely say: Blessed be He who said : "Let there be a world"
And that lack hurts the person, that is, he says that this feeling must have reached him, because he is far from the Creator, that is, because he is immersed in self-love. And this causes him to separate from the Creator, which means that he does not feel the greatness of the Creator because the Creator is hidden from him.
And therefore, he cannot see the truth, as it is written: "Well, it is your life and the length of your days"
And nor can he feel the importance of the Torah, as it is written: "For this is your wisdom and your understanding, in the eyes of the nations, who will listen to all these laws and say:" This great nation is certainly a wise and learned people "
When the person evaluates himself, he concludes:
" Where is this enthusiasm that the nations speak about us? How it is written:
"... certainly a wise and learned people, who are by the force of the Torah, because we observe what is written:" Observe and fulfill , for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the eyes of the nations " So why don't I feel the importance of the Torah and the Mitzvot?"
In this state of reflection , when the person feels how far he is of any importance due to the work of the Creator, and begins to wake up and think:
"I must do something! I cannot be in this low state for the rest of my life"
Certainly, this is the moment in which a person begins to pray to the Creator, to draw him closer to Him and help him from Above, as our sages said: "He who comes to purify himself receives help"
In other words, may the Creator remove from him that concealment of the greatness and importance of the Kdushá (Holiness and Purity), in order to overcome all thoughts and desires b garlic that comes from self-love.
And may all your concerns be only, about what you can do for the Kdusha, called: "To give satisfaction to its Maker" And certainly that can only be done to the extent that he believes in the greatness and importance of the Creator, therefore the person asks the Creator to open his eyes, so that he can see and feel the greatness and importance of the Creator, as it is written in Tehillim- Psalms 88:
"Lord, why do you abandon my soul? Why do you hide your face from me?" < br> And then it becomes a prayer that flows from the bottom of the heart, and at that moment the person wants the Creator to heal his heart, as it is written:
"He heal the heartbroken and sell their sadness."(Tehilim 147)
Then the person will probably think that the awakening of the prayer will bring him closer to the Creator, and that this comes from himself, and awaits the salvation of the Creator and that He help him with receiving and granting his prayer, this is what will take him and bring him closer to the Eternal, since he is praying now, because now he feels his lack which he did not feel before
