praying at once

When one prays, he collects his letters and words as one who collects a boquet of wild-flowers. Each letter doesn't want to part with the soul and so begs and pleads not be let free of the soul. When the letters join into words, the words plead even more. Therefore one must guard all of the letters in one's soul, so that when one is on the last word of the prayer, one remains on the first word of the prayer. At the end, one is still at the beginning, holding all the words of the prayer at once.
(Likkutei Moharan I:62:b)
