Siddur Class: Sourcesheets from Amit Gvaryahu’s Shiur on Tefillah

Talmud Yerushalmi: Berakhot 5:5 (9D)

אמ’ ר’ שמואל בר נחמני. אם כיוונתה את ליבך בתפילה תהא מבושר שנשמעה תפילתך.‏
ומה טעם. “תכין לבם תקשיב אזניך”.‏
R. Samuel b. Nahmani said: if you directed your heart in prayer, know that your prayer is heard.
Why? Prepare their heart – make your ears hear. (Psalms 10:17)
