Every Jew should daven with a minyan. According to Jewish law, when ten men come together in a group, it is called a minyan. This group (Tzibur) is not just ten separate people. This minyan forms a new unit with a strong energy towards Heaven.

In Psalms 78 our Sages say that "they talked him in with their mouths and their hearts in another." The sentence that follows is: "He is merciful and He forgives." When a group comes together to daven to Hashem, they have great power. This power can cause Hashem to forgive.

Hashem listens to the prayers of each person in the minyan, and decides how they should be answered.
