alight in prayer

In prayer, when do we need to give our lives (figuratively) to sanctify God's name. In other words, when is the time in prayer to put in our utmost effort, to give of ourselves as wholly as possible?

Rebbe Nachman explains that it is precisely when the machshavoth zaroth, the foreign thoughts, come to distract us, that is the sign to put in our maximal effort, to give our very lives for the sake of God's name.

(Likkutei Moharan I:26)
