Just curious, what's your favorite prayer/psalm/part of the liturgy?

There are always bits of service that I particularly look forward to - for me, the Birkot ha-Shachar and the Amidah, while my son always perks up when we sing V'Shamru and Yism'chu (more or less in the middle of the service).

R'tzei, near the end of the Amidah. For me, it reflects the eternal plea of humanity for God to be there...just to be there. Followed by Hodaah, where we acknowledge and give thanks for God's ever-presence in some way in our lives, this one-two beat in the service humbles me almost to the point of tears--and sometimes beyond--every time. (I try to daven at least daily, and still, each time it blows me away.)

I love singing etz chayim the best. The melody is so beautiful.

Thanks for your replies! Michael, I love your description of those prayers - they're going to mean more to me each time I get there now :)
