Purim Through Pesach 40 Days Almost Here and Some Mazel Tovs!

So exciting. I love Mazel Tov time! Who knows how many prayers and mitzvot it took to get these people here but we are happy that the 40 day prayers at the Kotel providentially happened at the time that the prayers were finally answered and so officially gets the credit. :-)

First, and my favorite.  Perhaps you heard about the fall of TEVA, the Israeli pharmaceutical company, a few months ago?  We unfortunately did.  Among the big casualties was a good friend of our family, who had invested a much too heavy size of his family savings into the company when it was at 22+ pts.  To his horror, the stock dropped to 11pts.  He spent time in many classes strengthening his Emunah and getting blessings from Gedolim.  He decided to hired my bar mitzvah boy to trek to the Kotel daily for 40 days and recite books of tehillim to have the stock rise.  He also prayed from home.  At the end of the 40 days, Teva miraculously rebounded to 19 pts.

Great. But not enough to save his fortune.  After weeks of convincing again (40 days is a hard feat for anyone to take on, especially a teenager), my son agreed to pray for him for another round of 40 days.  He just needed 4 more pts to get out.  I am thrilled to say that during his second 40 days our friend was able to save his money when TEVA climbed to just above 22.5 for a brief point (the next morning it went right back down).

If G-d controls the heaven and the earth, it is truly no sweat for Him to control the stock market :-)  So much for all of those who got out early and did not resort to prayer.

Secondly, a good friend of ours was having a very hard time in shidduchim, with a failed engagement and very few prospects.  We are thrilled that she was able to pray her own 40 days at the Kotel with much mesirut nefesh and got engaged to a wonderful man right after!

Mazel tov to Harry who landed the job he was waiting for during our 40 days of prayer for him and mazel tov to Anna, whose son got accepted into the best graduate program possible for him during his 40 days and who got offered the job he wanted on exactly day 40 despite his very average standing.

We love Hashem!!

We even love Hashem when He keeps His chesed and ways hidden from us and trust that He is behind everything in our lives, the happy as well as painful, just helping us to become the best people we can be and saving us from going in the wrong way…

Less than two weeks left to cash in on some of the most powerful prayer days of the year at the Kotel.  Don’t miss out!!!
You CAN help that struggling friend.
You CAN make your life better (as well as others).

Just try it!  Worst case scenario, you get the merit of supporting Torah in Jerusalem.

(If you haven’t yet signed up…) Pray for me for the 40 days through Purim and Pesach!!!
