The Four Corrections of the Prayer

409) In the prayer, a man’s body and soul are corrected and perfected. A prayer is correcting corrections, which are corrected as one. There are four corrections: 1) correcting oneself to be completed, 2) correcting this world, 3) correcting the upper world in all the armies of heaven, 4) correcting the holy name in the holy Merkavot and in all the worlds, above and below.

410) The first correction is the correction of himself because he needs to correct himself with a Mitzva and with Kedusha, to be corrected in the sacrifices and in the offerings to be purified. The Tzitzit is a Mitzva, the Tefillin is Kedusha, and in saying sacrifices and offerings, he is corrected as though he offered sacrifices.

The second correction, the correction of this world, is in the work of creation, to bless the Creator for each and every work with these Halleluiah, as it is written, “Praise Him, all you stars of light. Praise Him, you heavens of heavens,” to keep the existence of this world. In the prayer, it is said about it, “Blessed be He who said,” where blessed means blessed for everything.

411) The third correction is the correction of the upper world in all those armies and camps. It is the praise, “Who makes servants, and Whose servants all stand at the height of the world.” And also, “The Ofanim [wheels/angels] and the holy animals, with a sound of great noise, raise themselves toward the seraphim.”

The fourth correction is the Eighteen Prayer, the correction of the holy name, the correction of a complete name. Happy am I with you in this world and in the next world.
