Purity of Prayer

“One engaged in the service of prayer must completely uproot from their heart thoughts of worldly pleasures… until all the strength of one’s heart is drawn only upward, to delight upon the Almighty alone through the words of the prayer.”

          Rabbi Chayim of Volozhin, Nefesh haChayim, Gate II, Ch. 1
