Amida literally means ‘standing’. It usually refers to the silent prayer.
It is the peak of the prayer when we reach the spiritual world of Atzilut and ‘submit’ our prayers to the Holy One Blessed be He.
During the Amida, we are i front of the King and should be silent and with awe, understanding where we are. We do not move or speak because the King knows exactly where we are and what’s in our consciousness.
