comment What is special about praying Shacharis and Mariv (as opposed to Mincha)?
@DoubleAA yeah I did forget about those things and was lumping together the fact that reciting korbanos in lieu of actual sacrifices and the amidah repetition are only done by Shacharis and Mincha, which seems to make them more "important" relative to Mariv, irrespective of whether davening is a Torah obligation or not. The question of why "oychel peiroisehem..." still stands (for me), although Dan has a great point.

@msh210 and seth, you're right re sourcing stuff, I'll try to do better in the future. Also about "dejargoning", it just appeared to me from my browsing that doing it was a matter of taste and didn't appear to be consistent. Any tips on when and how much would be appreciated.

@msh210, I'm not sure what you mean by the former, it's part of a Gemara in Shabbos, that we say every morning. As for the latter, I was going with "common knowledge" (that Chazal tell us from "Vayashkaim Avraham" and Vayeitzei Yitzchok").

Yeah, this is kind of what I was expecting heh. Sometimes you feel like there should be an additional way to make a mitzvah more l'shem shomaim but most likely you should just have the kavanos of bein adam l'chaveiro in mind. I also really appreciate this answer, being a Bobover chosid and all. ollies out
