Bolt of Inspiration - Haggadah
A Weekly D'var Torah from the Dean and Rav of Yavneh - R' Shlomo Einhorn 

וְאֶת לַחֶצֵנוּ - זֶוֹ הַדְּחַק,  כְּמָה  שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר: וְגַם רָאִיתִי אֶת הַלַּחַץ אֲשֶׁר מִצְרַים  לֹחֲצִים אֹתָם.
"And our oppression," this refers to the pressure, as it is said: "I have seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them."
What is this "דחק" – “pressure”? Rav Yochanan Kirshenbaum, author of the Pidyon Shevuyim, cites the verse "ועתה הנה צעקת בני ישראל באה אלי וגם ראיתי את הלחץ אשר מצרים לוחצים אותם" – “And behold the cry of the Jewish people has come to Me, and I have also seen the pressure which the Egyptians press them.” Shouldn’t the pressure be mentioned first, for the crying is a reaction to the pressure? The pressure that was placed upon them was a response to the beginning of the verse. The Jewish people cried out in prayer and the Egyptians tried to make them stop praying. One of the worst things that could be done to a human being is to take away his or her ability to pray.
