Torah 5:1 ה׳:א׳
1 א

לְשׁוֹן רַבֵּנוּ זִכְרוֹנוֹ לִבְרָכָה בַּחֲצֹצְרוֹת וְקוֹל שׁוֹפָר הָרִיעוּ לִפְנֵי וְכוּ': (תהילים צ״ח:ו׳)

B’chatzotzrot (With trumpets) and the sound of the shofar shout out before God, the King.” (Psalms 98:6)

2 ב

א כִּי צָרִיךְ כָּל אָדָם לוֹמַר: כָּל הָעוֹלָם לֹא נִבְרָא אֶלָּא בִּשְׁבִילִי (סנהדרין לז). נִמְצָא, כְּשֶׁהָעוֹלָם נִבְרָא בִּשְׁבִילִי, צָרִיךְ אֲנִי לִרְאוֹת וּלְעַיֵּן בְּכָל עֵת בְּתִקּוּן הָעוֹלָם, וּלְמַלְּאוֹת חֶסְרוֹן הָעוֹלָם, וּלְהִתְפַּלֵּל בַּעֲבוּרָם.

Now, each person must say: “The entire world was created only for my sake” (Sanhedrin 37a). Consequently, because the world was created for my sake, I must constantly look into and consider ways of making the world better; to provide what is missing in the world and pray on its behalf.

3 ג

וְעִנְיַן הַתְּפִלָּה הֵן בִּשְׁנֵי פָּנִים, הַיְנוּ קֹדֶם גְּזַר דִּין מִתְפַּלְּלִין כְּסֵדֶר הַתְּפִלָּה, וְאֵין צָרִיךְ לְהַלְבִּישׁ הַתְּפִלָּה, אֲבָל לְאַחַר גְּזַר דִּין צָרִיךְ לְהַלְבִּישׁ הַתְּפִלָּה, כְּדֵי שֶׁלֹּא יָבִינוּ הַמַּלְאָכִים הָעוֹמְדִים לִשְׂמֹאל, וְלֹא יְקַטְרְגוּ, כְּמוֹ שֶׁכָּתוּב (דניאל ד׳:י״ד): בִּגְזֵרַת עִירִין פִּתְגָּמִין, הַיְנוּ לְאַחַר גְּזַר דִּין, אֲזַי: בְּמֵאמַר קַדִּישִׁין שְׁאֵלְתִּין, אֲזַי הַצַּדִּיקִים מַלְבִּישִׁים שְׁאֵלָתָם בְּמַאֲמָר:

{“The verdict is decreed by the destroying angels, and the request is through the maamar of the holy ones” (Daniel 4:14).} And in the matter of prayer, there are two approaches. Before the decree has been issued we follow the regular order of prayer and there is no need to veil the prayers. But after the decree has been issued our prayers have to be disguised <within stories>, so that the <accusing angels> standing to the left do not understand and protest. As is written, “The verdict is decreed by the destroying angels”—i.e., when it is after the decree has been issued—then, “the request is through the maamar of the holy ones”—then the tzaddikim disguise their requests in a maamar.
