Personalizing Shemonah Esrei

In this shiur from after Shacharis, the Rebbe, shlit"a, spoke about the difference between davening Shemoneh Esrei and other forms of prayer. While one should be connecting to Hashem through prayer all day long as a child to a parent, the way one davens Shemoneh Esrei must reflect an understanding that it is an audience with the King.

"Shemoneh Esrei is an echo of Rosh Hashana; the rest of the day is an echo of Yom Kippur."

The last few minutes are especially important for parents, as the Rebbe drew a direct correlation between how we are with our children and their ability to have a loving relationship with Hashem.
