On the importance of daily prayer

Over at the Velveteen Rabbi, Rachel Barenblat has a good post explaining the importance of daily prayer. Perhaps the best line from the post is:

No one imagines they can run easily and far if they don’t work out with some regularity. Just so, we can’t run spiritually if we don’t stretch and work out spiritually. The practice of daily prayer is a chance to stretch spiritual muscles. It allows us to domesticate the peak experience.

But it’s worth your while to read the whole thing.
