Tehillim One Hundred and Thirty-Four: Prayer

“Lift your hands in the holy place and bless the Lord (Psalms 134:2).” I like that this verse includes a physical component to the act of prayer. In educational theory, we understand that we learn best when multiple senses and actions are engaged. Learners of all ages should ideally be listening, absorbing, and acting. Therefore, prayer doesn’t need to just be a spoken act. It can involve movement, action, and multiple layers of experience. How can we all do a better job of not speaking rote words, and rather embodying the meaning of our prayers?
