PRAYER OF SHEMONEH ESREI
Before a person starts Shemoneh Esrei, he should stop thinking about
everyday things. His mind should be clear to think about the high position of
Hashem and the helpless position of a person. No matter how many good reasons
he may have, he should only be thinking about praying to Hashem.
In order to help him concentrate he should not daven in a place that has disturbances. While
davening the Shemoneh Esrei, he should have a feeling that he is asking for
Hashem's mercy, and he should be not daven just because he has to. A person
should feel in his heart that no one can help him except Hashem Himself. All of
this is most important in the first bracha.
