«Rav Yehudah HaChassid, Yehudah ben Shmuel, emphasized that the precondition for prayer to be answered is:
Our tefilloth must be fueled by its utterance filled with:
enthusiasm and joy for the greatness and holiness of G*D.»
Adding "Enthusiasm" to what you do changes everything. With the right amount, it adds a kedushah factor.
Shalom and Best Regards,
