Marriage

I have been meaning to email you. I wanted to let you know that I recently got engaged! I have to tell you that we started dating the day I started my 40 days of tefillah. I just wanted to thank you again and let you know the good news.

Daniella Klians, Canada

Last year when I did my 40 day prayer project, I asked that Jeremy find his soul mate by his birthday this year. That happens to be today, and I'm very grateful to Hashem to be able to say that he is engaged to a wonderful girl . Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be connected to Hashem in such a wonderful way. I'm so grateful that Hashem led me to do the 40 day prayer project. It not only blessed Jeremy and Hollie, but it changed my life in the process.

Sherry Schoenwald, Texas

Boruch Hashem, as of this past Friday I'm a choson! In line with the suggestion when doing the 40 days of prayer, I committed to giving a donation if I were to meet the girl who would become my kallah within 3 months of the prayers ending. I'm thrilled that it took less than 2 months for me to both meet her and get engaged!

Sender Radcliffe, Canada

I was a single mother, raising my two young daughters and I simply wanted to raise them in a healthy, loving home, with a mother and father. My tears and prayers had been heard! Before completing my last 40 days of Perek Shira and my 40 days of prayer through Western Wall Prayer, I had met the man I now call my husband. We married on August 11, 2013, and I thank Hashem each and every moment of each day for the gifts He has bestowed upon us.

Thank you, Gershon (a"h) and Batya Burd of Western Wall Prayers, for your kindness and boundless love for Klal Yisrael. I am eternally grateful to you for providing me with a means to reach Hashem. May you be blessed with eternal rewards for all your future generations.

Nechama Baila Cooper, Chicago

I have wonderful news. My daughter is a kallah! The vort was this past Wednesday and we're looking forward to a wedding in Shevat. Please relay this message and a big thank you to my shaliach.

Chaya Goldstein Brooklyn, NY

For many years, I tried all kinds of spiritual ways to find a Shidduch - giving Tzedaka, praying at Kivrei Tzadikim, receiving Berachos from Rebbes, etc. What worked for me at the end was 40 days of prayers on my behalf at the Western Wall - the holiest area in the world where we have a direct line to Hashem. If it worked for me, it can work for just about anyone else who earnestly turns to Hashem.

Shimon Boyer, Israel

I wanted to send you an e-mail and let you know that on July 4th I became engaged! I wanted to thank you for all your help and assistance with arranging to have the Rabbi daven on my behalf. If you could please let him know I am now engaged to a wonderful kind man who is devoted to Hashem and the Jewish people. And please send him my thanks and utter appreciation for his davening. I am so grateful to Hashem for bringing me such a wonderful man.

Erin Grossman, Chicago

I had been dating for marriage for 5 years and I wasn’t getting anywhere.  Then, I asked you to daven 40 days at the Kotel for me, because I heard that this Segula works.  That period of time I was dating someone very seriously and I asked for a blessing for this shidduch, but you told me that I should only make a general prayer, and not specifically for this guy.  Well, this shidduch didn’t work out!  Instead I met another man with incredible middot (character) and we got married 7 months ago!  It has been incredible.  Thank you for everything!

Ella Sanders, New York

Just wanted to let you know that my sister Malki Avigdor got engaged only a few days after the 40 days were finished. It can happen to you in a blink of an eye. Thank you so much for your part in this happy ending. 

Rachel Avigdor, New York

I really appreciate hearing from you.  Actually, I am very much in love right now .  I think about my shaliach from time to time and am so grateful to her.  The wedding will be in the winter.

Alisa, Los Angeles

Although I never would have pictured myself getting someone to pray for me, I decided to give it a try.  Around the 30th day I met an incredible man and got engaged to him soon after that.  We are now happily married.  I want to thank you so much for all of your prayers! 

Leah, New York

I asked you to pray with me concerning a soul mate for my niece, Tricia. I am happy to inform you that she is now engaged! They are very happy...as we all are!! Thought you would like the update. Thank you so much for your prayers on Tricia's behalf!

Donna Alexander, Texas

I recently wrote to you after my husband and I thank G-d got married. We met during the 40 days.  Thank you so much for all you efforts. May you continue doing amazing work.

Karen, Israel

Shortly after I met Myles, I asked that you daven for me 40 days that my soul mate should be revealed to me. One month later we were engaged and one more month after that we were married.  Attached is a picture taken right after my wedding.

Lisa Mittwol, New York

I have had quite an experience with the 40-days!  Just after the completion of my first 40-days I met a man that I was sure was my soul-mate.  There was just one problem that held us back.  So, I enlisted another prayer agent.  Well, now that the second 40-days is finally complete, my soul-mate and I are finally happily together!  Thank you for everything!

Jennifer, Toronto

Remember when I first contacted you? I was so sure that the girl I’d just broken up with was my bashert, and I begged you to daven that I marry her. Well, luckily for me you asked that I agree to add the words “if it’s for the best”, and eventually I gave in. A couple months later, I met Chava and to make a long story short, I’ll just say that I had never expected such a great, clear, unmistakable, and wonderful fulfillment of the prayers. Few, so few are lucky enough to find this happiness, and thank G-d, Chava and I are now among them.  Sometimes I think this love is so strong that it can light the whole world. G-d willing, we are marrying in May, and you and my shaliach will be guests of honor!

Victor, Raanana

About a year ago I used your services and had someone pray for me so that I would find my soulmate and get married. I'm happy to say that a few months after the 40 days was over, I found someone and we got married May of 2010. I wanted to say thank you and share the great news with you and the person who prayed for me.

Joshua, Montreal

We are engaged! Thank you so much for your shaliach's successful davening!

Devorah, San Francisco

You davened at the Kotel for me to find my bashert in February 2009 – exactly the month I met my husband at a singles event and didn't know it then. I believe that this was what got the ball rolling so that I would be prepared to realize he was for me in January 2010. Baruch Hashem we married on May 30, 2010!

Samantha Goldstein, Canada

I have good news. I got engaged! thanks so much for your efforts and we should only here of simchas!

Henny, Israel

Just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know the good news. I get a Mazel Tov- I got engaged last night . I feel so blessed and cannot thank Hashem enough. Thank you for all your tefillos on my behalf.

Yocheved, L.A.

I want to let you know that my son got engaged yesterday! When I got in touch with you on Feb 16 you suggested that I should make a commitment that if my prayers will be answered in a certain time I will make a donation. I did what you told me , I said that if my son got engaged in 3 months I will make the donation. Incredibly , Baruch Hashem, on the 90th day he decided to get engaged to this wonderful girl that is so right for him.

Chana, South Africa

I just wanted to share the wonderful news that I am a kallah!!! B"h I am engaged to a wonderful boy, who is exactly everything I davened for. Thank you so much for giving me the extra zechus, that I am sure impacted shamayim!

Chani, Baltimore

I asked for 40 days for my zivug last fall and got engaged! And guess what? Our first date was at the end of the 40 days at the Kotel! Thank you.

Rachel, Detroit

Thank you so much for davening at the Kosel on behalf of my daughter. Baruch Hashem, she got engaged to a wonderful young man a few weeks ago (after dating for close to five years). I believe that all the many zechusim on her behalf, including your kind efforts at the Kosel, contributed to this simcha. Hatzlacha Rabbah in all your future endeavors!

Mrs. G., New Jersey

I just wanted to send you an email to let you know that Baruch Hashem our prayers have worked and I got engaged to a wonderful boy this weekend. Keep up all the amazing work you’re doing!

Emily, London

I sent you pictures and names of my dear children, and a request to daven for them for success in finding their basherts. Baruch HaShem, my daughter is now a Mrs. Thank you for caring and HaShem for giving us the opportunity to call out to Him through your organization.

Orah, Chicago

Thank you so much for praying from me to find my soul mate. I wanted to let you know that I just got married last week to an amazing man, Thank G-d. My prayers were finally answered. Thank you very much for your help.

Leah Meyrov

I signed up for my brother who was very keen to get married, but was having a hard time. His heart had been broken more than once and I worried that he was scarred. I wanted to let you know that he found his Ms. Right and just got married. They are simply perfect for each other. This match was truly made in Heaven.

Miriam, Oregon

We asked you to pray 40 days from my brother Donny to find a wife. Exactly one month after the 40th day, he got engaged to Shira. They had gone out on one date several years ago but it never went anywhere. A family friend tried to pursuade them to give it another shot but they were reluctant. Eventually they agreed. That's when we wrote to you asking you to pray. I definitely believe that the prayers said for my brother at the Wall helped us get where we are today. Its amazing because Shira says that she knew he was "the one" on July 28th, and our 40 days ended on July 23. I think they needed the full 40 days of prayer in order to reach that point. Now we are all busy planning a December wedding.

Cheryl, New York

The first time I wrote to you I asked that you pray that the woman I was seeing would agree to marry me. It did not happen, in fact we broke up altogether. It was hard for me but I tried to trust in G-d and move ahead. So I asked you to just pray for me to find the right wife. Soon after I changed my prayer, I met a lady named Ivy and it quickly became serious. Now we are engaged! We plan to get married in December and honeymoon in Israel, where we will sure to be visit the Wall to thank G-d for answering our prayers. Thank you for helping me find the right prayer and for praying for me with all your heart,

Dennis, Georgia

After the first 40 days you prayed for me to find my husband, nothing happened but I felt that it was the right thing to sign up for a second 40 days. Shortly after the second period ended, I came to Israel, where someone was suggested for me. As soon as I met him I knew that he was perfect for me and Thank G-d we are now married. But the amazing story behind this match only came out afterwards, when we realized that my prayer agent was in fact a close friend of my husbands!  I feel that the prayers said on my behalf at the Wall played a major role in this amazing story. Thank you.

Nechama, Israel

You prayed for me about a year ago to find my marriage partner. Soon after, someone suggested setting me up with a certain guy but it did not work out at the time. Now I am pleased to report that we finally met, and the good news is. we're engaged.

Shira, Fort Lauderdale

I live in Sydney, Australia. I asked you to pray that I meet a great girl looking for a real relationship. I knew all the Jewish girls in town already, and it seemed that I needed a miracle. During Pesach I decided to go down to Melbourne with a good friend of mine.  I thought I already knew all the Jewish girls in Melbourne too.  So you wouldn't believe it… I met a really nice girl there!!!  We are still going out and hopefully it will develop into something even better!  I’ll keep you posted on what's happening!  All I can say is thank you very, very much and may G-d bless you all!

Patrick, Melbourne

Thank you for your email. The timing is interesting, as I thank G-d got engaged this past weekend. Thank you for praying for me to get married!

Adina (Israel) and Bryan (South Africa)

I asked you to pray for me that I would find the woman I was meant to marry. After the 40 days’ prayer, two different people (not connected to each other) decided to try and set us up. We met, and thank G-d, we are now happily married.  Many thanks for your great work. 

Yaniv, Florida

When I contacted you I was so convinced that the person I’d just broken up with was my bashert and I wanted you to pay that it would work out. Well, you convinced me to let you daven that I marry the person who is right for me and that we should find each other soon. Before the 40 days even ended, I got engaged! We’re perfect for each other, and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you so much for davening for me. It was surely your tefilla that brought my bashert.

Ahava, Connecticut

So after my first 40 days I met Alan and he proposed.  Our next prayers to help overcome our engagement pitfalls were also answered! We just got married.  Thank you so much.

Beth and Alan, Florida

I asked you to daven that I find my bashert, and soon after that I was visiting Israel and was introduced to my husband through a relative of mine and your husband!  What a small world.  We now live in Jerusalem, and we are so happy to be a part of the community who prayed for us to be together!

Shelly, Jerusalem

I previously asked you to daven for a girl I know to find a shidduch. Now I’m asking you to daven that she and her husband will be blessed with children!  G-d led me to the right guy for her!  Thank you so much.

Yitzhak, Philadelphia

My sister is doing fine. She’s been married almost a year now- I guess the prayers did it!

Mark, Phillipines

I'm so excited to tell you that I just got engaged.  He is very special and we are getting married soon.  I want to thank you and my prayer agent and I will always be grateful!

Ilana, Israel    

I was pretty much the only one of my friends still unmarried and it was getting tiresome.  I had an agent pray 40 days for me and waited.  Finally, it happened!  I met a wonderful man and we will be getting married, G-d-willing, in a couple of months.  Thank you so much for your prayers!

Rachel, California

I signed up for prayers in Elul asking Hashem to lead me to my marriage partner and am so thrilled to announce that I became a kallah yesterday, less than 2 months later! Thanks so much!

Sara, Detroit

I just wanted to let you know that I'm engaged! We started dating during Pesach, 2 months after I signed up , and got engaged just before Shavuous! Thanks for your tefilos!

Tehilla, New Jersey

It is with great hakaras hatov that I write to inform you that I am engaged! My chosson and I cannot thank you enough. We both believe that my tefillot and the tefillot of my shluchim over the last several months were instrumental in the success of our shidduch.

anonymous, California

Recovery from Illness

Alexandra's school performance was staggering after she sustained a severe concussion. I asked you to pray that she be healed completely and return back to her bright, witty self. I am thrilled to report that she has began to shine again and her grades are soaring, she was even awarded "Student of the Month"! Thank you for your prayers!

Michelle, Florida

Almost a year ago, our daughter, then 8 ½, became very, very sick. It took almost three months to receive a diagnosis of severe Crohn’s disease. Our sweet child was hospitalized for a week, started on many medications, and began a very strict diet. We got in touch with you and were delighted to hear that Daryl, a former yeshiva mate of my husband, would be davening for her at the Kotel. 

I am so pleased to report that our daughter now looks and feels normal. She takes only two medications per day. She is still on her strict diet, but she is doing great. We feel strongly that the davening at the Kotel was integral to her recovery. 

Ellen Zagorsky Goldberg, Boston, MA 

I am very appreciative of my prayer agent and his daily journey to pray at the Kotel every day on my behalf. The prayers for negative results for MS were successful! I am so pleased that I do not have an auto immune disorder. I want to thank you for your continuing contact with me, it means a lot to me to have this connection.

Esther, Montville, NJ

I asked you to pray 40 days at the Wall that my friend's lung cancer should go into remission. We still have a way to go but so far the news seems positive. The doctors say that the chemo is working and the tumor is shrinking. She is continuing chemo for a few more months and hopefully that will destroy the tumor altogether. Please don't stop praying!

Siobhan Divine, Vancouver

Susie was originally diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago when she was almost 33 years old.  They removed the tumor - it was supposedly small and restricted. She was also treated with chemo and radiation and then pronounced well.  Less than 12 months later the cancer returned and infiltrated the bone, obviously a very aggressive tumor.  Yet now it appears to have stalled and even become somewhat smaller.  Now she feels quite well and she looks terrific.

Ted Lidsky , New Jersey 

Our daughter thank G-d is making progress- slowly, but regularly. She is able to make eye contact and in other ways relate to people in a manner that is not typical for children with autism. We have a long, difficult journey ahead of us- but your prayers have helped us find the road to recovery. 

Florence Titeux,  France

I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2001, and I asked you to pray for a Refuah shleima. My symptoms have improved since Daryl has been davening for me. The possibility was also discovered that my symptoms may be due to heavy metal poisoning, which can be corrected with the help of Ha Shem. Thank you for your kindness & concern.

Tovah Gangestad, Florida

I asked you to pray at the Wall for my friend, David, who was about to undergo a kidney transplant. I wanted to let you know that everything went great with the operation. I saw his wife last week and she said he's “pishing up a storm” (which means the new kidney is working).  It sounds like the donor is also recovering well too..

Mark, New York

Things are going Great! My thyroid surgery was a total success, the news of NO cancer was the blessing that I was waiting for. My heart was and is rejoicing! Even the surgeon told me that G-d guided his hand. Additionally, my husband had his second knee surgery and everything went even better this time than the first time. Thank you very much for your prayers!

Darah, California

Thank G-d, the patient was discharged at the time the prayers concluded. Thank you, it was a big help as he was in and out of danger, but G-d willing better than ever.

Noam, Toronto

Just wanted to let you know of the success of the prayers of my shaliach regarding my proposed neck surgery. HaShem repeatedly put roadblocks in the way of my being able to have the surgery even including an infected submandibular gland located at the exact point in my neck that the incision would be. However, with the passage of time from one delay to another, my body apparently laid down scar tissue to stabilize my neck. My symptoms are gone and I no longer need surgery. HaShem had a better way. He spared me the ordeal of a major operation and blessed me with a complete healing. All of the delays were messages from G-d to not have the surgery. He even physically prevented me from proceeding. Baruch HaShem. I thank and praise G-d for opening my eyes to the answer He had already provided for me. I thank G-d for His great mercy and protection. Please extend my appreciation and thanks to my shaliach.

Talia, New Jersey

I want you to know that the tefillos said by my shaliach for my request were certainly answered. My recurring headaches have disappeared. Please let her know the good news and give her my many thanks for her prayers.

Audrey, Boston

I am thrilled to report that Baruch Hashem, my friend David, is cancer-free!

Talia, Montreal

I want to say thank you for this service you have provided. During the prayers Tony was a bit out of control with abusing substances. Now he seems more in control and is doing much better. It's like he's had an awakening of some sort! He is not as angry or aggressive either, he seems a lot more calmer and at peace and is more in control of his addictions. Please thank his agent for interceding on his behalf for 40 days.

Evalyn, Oklahoma

I am pleased to tell you that my father's surgery went well. He has been able to resume his activities which most importantly involve caring for my mother who is now in her 80s. I have sponsored several prayers over the past two years. As a scientist, I cannot tell if it was the prayer that has resulted in positive outcomes or if it was just fate. However, I do know that the experience has strengthened my faith. Thank you!

Geoffrey, Maryland

When the doctors came to me with the news I was quite scared. I asked you to daven on my behalf and Baruch Hashem my test results were negative. Thank you very much for your tefillos. Wishing you continued hatzlacha.

Esther, New York

For the last two years my daughter had been suffering from a serious stomach disorder. She couldn’t eat, the food didn’t digest properly, and she  had nausea, stomach cramps, etc. As a result she couldn’t function properly and lead a normal life, she spent long hours immobile.  We went to the doctors, her tests were normal, they gave no treatment. Whatever I knew or people advised to help her we tried. Then we tried the 40 days of prayer- and immediately we found out about a special diet that has changed her life!

Irina Kovaneva, New York

I asked you to pray for my newborn nephew who was suffering from convulsions and could not breath properly. He was on a respirator and the doctor's said that there was little chance he would make it. My brother was feeling pretty hopeless. At first he would even tell me the sex of the baby. "What's the point?" he said. But a few days after the 40 days started, the baby's condition began to improve dramatically and he started to breath by himself. That was a few months ago, thank G-d he is now doing well.  It is truly a miracle.

Jonathan, Illinois

I wanted to let you know that my husband is showing improvement in coping with his Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder since the 40 days ended. It is a big relief to me. Thank you,

Sara, Arizona

I signed up yesterday for 40 days at the Wall for my aunt. This is my second time I’ve used Western Wall Prayers for her with success. The first time was a miracle in itself: she has survived inoperable pancreatic cancer even though the doctors predicted she would live only a few weeks. Yesterday she was diagnosed with stomach cancer. Today I get email from you: “Just to let you know, Rav Tzvi Pesach Dan Siegel is praying for her. He is starting this morning.” I just got a phone call that made my day: they do not believe it is cancer any more.

Barbara, Chicago

We asked you to pray for our nephew, Shmuel, who was in a really bad way due to his drug problem. Now he seems to be doing much better. We're taking one day at a time.  We appreciate your prayers and interest.

Norman, California

Since you prayed for my 7-year-old son, who is autistic, things have been going quite well.  We are on track, Hashem is being very kind and benevolent.  Thank you for being the angel who coordinates this great mitzva for so many.

Melanie, Miami

My wife Estreya had been suffering from heart and stomach pains. We feared that her condition was dangerous. After the doctors scheduled some serious tests, we asked you to pray for 40 days that the results would be good and my wife would be relieved of her pain. I wanted to let you know that the tests did not show anything serious and my wife is now feeling much, much better. Thank you for helping us,

Yisroel Meir, Israel

I asked you to prayer for my twin nephews, who both have autism. There are some very positive results since the prayers started. One of my nephews has shown remarkable improvements and is now saying a few words. The therapists say that this is an amazing achievement for an autistic child such as him. It is a long way forward for them - but this is a very good start in the right direction.

Josh, Oregon

I want to thank you, and my prayer agent Daryl Michels who interceded  with strong prayer for my health. For the 40 days that Daryl prayed for me, I discontinued all my medications except for a multi-nutrient. I studied the seven Noahide laws, Psalm 20, and prayed the prayer every day, as you suggested. The terrible pain in my left arm and shoulder is almost gone (I feel it a little sometimes to remind me that I am healed), my high blood pressure and diabetes numbers have dropped dramatically, my eyesight is much improved (I can see much better out of left eye now and it is still improving) and my hair is growing (smile). I am sure that this is God's miracle working power produced through my mighty prayer agent Daryl. What a blessing for me that God lead me to you and the Wall.

Dorothy, Utah

Since you prayed for me, my allergies have been improving. I've just finished my last “rush start” allergy shot and that I had no visible reaction, even though the concentration of this shot was 5 billion times stronger than the first.  I am on track to being allergy free within a year. Thank you thank you,

Shelley, Connecticut

I asked you to pray for the recovery of my mother, who was terribly ill with cancer. Now I can report that my mother is doing much, much better. She just visited my house for the first time in months.  We went to see the doctor last Thursday and she was amazed at how well Mom is doing.  She looked up to the heavens for an explanation.  I told her about your service.  My mother is still very tired but eating up a storm.  She has gained 12 pounds already.

Lauren, Oklahoma

My aunt is doing much better.  Before I signed up for the prayers, the doctors said she had cancer. Since then, they discovered it wasn't cancer after all! It must be a miracle! You’re prayers are much appreciated. 

Ellen, Indiana

Thanks to your prayers, I recovered from life-threatening surgery.   The doctors didn’t know whether I’d live or die and I miraculously came out fine.   I am happy to say that I am now a fully-functioning human being. 

Shoshana, South Africa

When we asked you to daven for my mother-in-law the doctors were only giving her a couple of months to live. They didn’t believe she could handle surgery, but she did it and now she is doing much, much better. This is just one of many successes after having you pray for us.  Thanks again for your great work!!! 

Avraham, Arizona

Kelsey is doing well after an entire year of surgeries (two of which lasted 24 hours a piece) and life or death situations. I firmly believe that her life was spared due to her prayer as well as her extremely dedicated doctors.

Andy, Arizona

After my mother was diagnosed with cancer, we were in a bit of a panic.  I signed her up for 40 days of prayer and miraculously the next test turned out negative - she no longer has cancer.  Thank you for your part in this miracle... we will forever be grateful!

Alex Langer, Los Angeles

My doctors and I thought the worst when I was getting very sick.  All signs pointed to a serious medical problem.  During the 40 days all sorts of tests were performed and 1 by 1 they came out negative.   I just want to cry out in joy.  Thank you for your prayers and my renewed faith.

Batya, Staten Island

My wife was recently told that she had a potentially cancerous lump in her breast.  Thank G-d, even before the 40 day cycle was over, we got word that it was benign.  My wife was certain that with the help of G-d, she would be okay, but knowing that we had an agent at the Wall, comforted her (and me) immensely. 

Jeff, Los Angeles

My 1 1/2 yr old grand-daughter was hospitalized with a myriad of problems; including trouble breathing, poor muscle tone, tonsils and adenoids and to top it off a serious virus that affected her respiratory system to the point where she needed oxygen to sleep.  We immediately got an agent to pray for her and within days she was out of the red zone and able to return home to recuperate.  She is doing much better now and I am so grateful for your prayers!

Rivka, New Jersey

After having prayers said for my eyesight recovery, my sight test results have gotten much better!   I am immensely grateful for what you have done and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Rodrigo Videla Vargas, Chile

I was overcome with deteriorating health and tremendous pain when I contacted Western Wall Prayers.  During the 40 days my condition improved immensely and I eventually recuperated.  I do believe in prayer now and its power to affect everything.

Malka, California

My sister was diagnosed with cancer.  It was a shock to us.  During the 40 days that an agent prayed for her, a miracle literally happened.  The cancer was gone.  Doctors see no trace of it anymore.  I can't understand it, but I'm not complaining.   You do wonderful work.

Lisa, Toronto

After my son was diagnosed with a cyst, I signed up for the Western Wall Prayers service.  After the 30th day of prayer, his cyst was removed safely and without complications.   May you have continued blessing in the work that you do!

Michael, Texas

I was having serious colon problems.  My son was worried, and signed me up for the 40 days' prayer.  On the 36th day, the doctors operated and were astounded to find nothing but a small infection.  I was also surprised until I found out that my son had sponsored a prayer agent for me.  Thank you so much Western Wall Prayers!  I am so grateful!

Eli, Chicago

The doctors gave my mother only 2 months to live. She’s 78 years old and weighed only 84 lbs. We knew that if she was ever going to have a chance to beat a recurring case of cancer, she needed to gain weight. We asked you to daven for us that she would gain weight. My 40 days of prayer ended on April 9. Before the 40 days were over, she had already gained 6 lbs and was doing much better.  I attribute this improvement a huge degree to my 40-day prayer.  I have not been to Israel since 1979; however, I will never forget how it felt to be in Jerusalem and especially by the Wall.  For me, it is almost indescribable.  I felt the presence of G-d more strongly there than anywhere else.  I am very grateful and would like to continue when the first 40-days are up. 

Lisa Mittwol, New York 

I am very grateful to my shlichim, who have davened on behalf of myself and others. Every day I daven that they should both see tremendous zchar in this world and in the World to Come. Howard is an elderly gentlemen who had a second stroke and had a dozen doctors tell his family that its was over. The day after the davening started his daughter called me to tell me that her father opened his eyes from a semi coma, ripped out his feeding tube, said "I'm hungry," and started eating. A true miracle!

Nancy, California

Moshe is a young man struggling with a rare cancer. When prayers started for him we were wondering if he would live, He had just been diagnosed with such an aggressive and rare illness. We saw nissim then, of successful treatments and a very successful surgery that miraculously removed the tumors, even when the doctors were not optimistic. He has come a long way and is on a steady path to recovery. Thank you!

Tova, Chicago

Children

After 4 years of trying I almost gave up on having children. My contact with you was my final attempt before I let go of my hope to be a mother. I couldn't believe that I got a positive test right after the 40 days of Prayer were complete - my soul soared with joy! I am so blessed by Hashem to announce that our miracle has arrived! Emily Or'El Hoerster was born on the 7th night of Chanukah, December 8th. I don't know how to thank Hashem, you, my agent and the whole entire Western Wall Prayers staff ENOUGH. May I merit to raise up this child in purity, love and obedience to Him.

Juanita Hoerster, Midland, TX

Baruch Hashem! My daughter had a beautiful healthy baby girl who will be named Malkah Golda this Saturday. All are well... We are so grateful to HaShem… Thank you for your prayers and well wishes!

Dr. Sandra Scantling, Connecticut

You prayed for my cousins, who were trying to have a baby for 8 years. "I think we're cursed," my cousin Deborah had told me. The agent prayed, I prayed, we all prayed and . . . nothing. No baby. Since I certainly don't understand the ways of G-d, and I figured it couldn't hurt, I signed up for another prayer. After Rosh Hashonah, Deborah told me that right after Passover she did the in vitro again. I knew what convinced them to try again. Passover was when the prayers were being said at the Wall. Now at Rosh Hashonah, the prayers were sealing the deal. David and Deborah's baby was born on January 19, 2009. Thank you so much for all your help in creating this miracle.

Jen Goodman, New York

My daughter had a baby boy! Hudson Levi Biegel. He was an IVF baby and the 9mos of her pregnancy transcended every fear and concern one could have. Hashem is so incredible! I cannot express how appreciative my wife and I are for His blessing to us, this is our first grandchild, miracle of miracles. Thank you! May G-d bless you and your wonderfully dedicated group of mitzvah makers.

Richard Gerber, Georgia

I’m sitting here with my beautiful baby boy Chaim Elazar. You prayed for me to find my husband, and I did.  We just gave birth to a new baby boy!  I’ve been so busy being a Kallah and being pregnant that it’s taken me this long to write you!

Ella Sanders, (Netherlands), Hershel Firbank (New York)

Easy Birth

Mazal tov! My wife Debra gave birth to a healthy baby girl three hours ago. We asked you to pray for her to have an easy birth. Our other two children were born after very traumatic labors and Debra was naturally nervous about the this birth. She wanted you to pray that this one would be as easy as a chicken laying an egg. Now Debra says her prayer was truly answered: It was as easy as a chicken laying an egg! I believe that someone praying for us in Jerusalem played a big part in this.

David Scop, New York

You prayed 40 days for me to have a child last September. I want to let you know that our daughter Aurora was born on September 7th, almost exactly one year after my 40 days began. She is healthy and very beautiful to us. We are very, very happy and will always be grateful to you. Please send my regards to my prayer agent.

Paulina Aguilar, Chile

We had been trying to conceive for some time and came to you asking that you beseech Hashem to bless us with a child. I wanted to get back to your organization and thank you! I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy boy last July. He is the light of our whole family and extended family's lives - especially his dad and mine. Our little guy just learned how to say 'mama' and it's the most wonderful word that I've ever heard! A HUGE thanks to Hashem and your organization!

Shoshona and Moshe, Illinois

I asked you to daven for the conception of a healthy son to raise to a good, long, and healthy life of Torah, Chuppah and Massim Tovim. Thank G-d, we had a baby boy at the end of August, shortly before Rosh Hashanah. He is delicious, we are enjoying him and his sisters love him!

Hannah, NJ

Mazel Tov! With Deep Gratitude to HaShem Yisborach, we welcome the new addition to our family, our firstborn son. Thank you for davening on our behalf.

Rena, L.A.

Your chevra davened for two of my daughters to get married, and for one of them to have a baby. B"H, all of my tefillos were answered; my daughter had a baby boy 10 weeks ago, after 3 years of marriage. My second daughter got married a little over a year ago, and had a baby boy 7 weeks ago. And their younger sister got married a few months later, and she had a baby boy 12 days ago! I am forever grateful to HaKadosh Baruch Hu! Thank you for the prayers.

Leah, Canada

Thank you so much for praying for us to become parents. I am so grateful for our beautiful baby girl who was born a few weeks ago.  A true miracle.  Thank G-d, she’s a good baby and so, so cute.

Aviva, New York

I was married for almost five years and was still hoping and waiting to fall pregnant. After signing up for the prayers, I am happy to saw that I am now expecting!

Esther, Israel

Wow.  These prayers are amazing.  It's been only a couple of weeks since we started and my friend is already pregnant!
Thanks for everything.

Cary, Michigan

My husband and I have been trying to have children for a while now.  We were signed up for Western Wall Prayers without our knowledge and just 2 weeks after the 40 days ended, I became pregnant.  I recently gave birth to a beautiful baby boy.  Mazal tov!  I can't thank you enough for your kindness!

Rachel, New York

We had been married for a few years already and we had been unable to have a baby. I asked someone to pray 40 days for me and thank G-d, a few months later I finally became pregnant and, G-d-willing, will have a healthy baby soon!  All of our blessings and gratitude.

Lisa, Illinois

I asked you to daven 40 days for me to be blessed with children and Thank G-d, after many years of trying, I am expecting. I’m in my 5th month now, and it is truly a miracle! 

Rachel, Washington

I had been struggling with fertility problems for more than a year.  A friend saw how painful this was for me, and arranged for a Western Wall Prayers agent to pray 40 days for me.  Thank G-d, I had a successful pregnancy and gave birth to a beautiful baby.  I can't tell you how much we appreciate your kindness!

Sarah, Israel

Job Success

I have just started a new job which is challenging and exciting.  When I got a prayer agent, I was concerned that since my former employer was being very mean spirited I would not be able to get a reference.  I need to tell you what happened.  The interview process for my new position was easy and proceeded without any problems.  I believe that G-d opened the hearts and minds of many people to eliminate any obstacles that might have been put in my path.  Great huge tears of gratitude pour out of my eyes as I write to you today.   I have renewed my commitment to prayers and to understanding and practicing Noahide laws as a result of my contact with you.

Tom, Canada

WWP kindly completed a 40-day prayers on my behalf for Parnasah for my husband and I'm happy to say that my husband was able to land a job before his severance ran out and was only unemployed for one week. We also included Shalom Bayit in our prayer request and I'm happy to say that our home has been more peaceful and pleasant. I was very happy to receive your photo of my shaliach, it reminds me that I am not alone in my prayers.

Elizabeth, Boston

On wednesday I had an interview for a job position. They called me to sign a contract, I am starting Monday. I want to thank you and my prayer agent for your help.

Angela, Republica Dominicana

Thank you for all your support. Hashem has blessed me with the money I need to move. I have experienced bountiful blessings over the years and I am forever grateful.

Kuwanna Thompson, New York

I would love for you to know our prayers have been answered. Benjamin has found a job that he really likes and will G-d willing lead into other opportunities. G-d is so good! Thank you so much for what you all do.

Janet, Tennessee

The month of Elul and Tishrei have been months of many blessings Baruch Hashem. Thank you so much. My request regarding my work has been answered. I'm so happy and feeling so much better as 5 of my co-workers have been asked to leave.

Lucia Miriam Penas, Switzerland

Thanks so much for helping with my recent cycles. I am thrilled that we've just finished with them and even more thrilled to report that my prayers have been answered! Thank G-d not only did I get a fantastic result in my doctorate exam, but I got a job in the department and I'm loving it! I owe a huge thank you to the whole WWP team and pray that Hashem will always shower you with brachot.

Sarina, Boston

I requested prayers for several things, amongst other things, a good and happy job as I was having a very hard time working for a very demanding and unreasonable lawyer. I also asked that, if it is possible, I could work for a Jewish boss or a Jewish organisation. That seemed impossible as I live in Asia where there are very few Jews. Also, the job market is not good so everything looked bleak and gloomy, economically, and all. Well, you would NEVER believe it!!! Through a series of events that I would term "miraculous", I am now working for a Jewish boss in a very happy and blissful work environment!!! My boss and I have a great working relationship, and he trusts me a lot and is very respectful and appreciative of what I do for him!! A complete difference from the lawyer I used to work with! Thank you so much for your rabbi's prayers for me!! Please convey my heartfelt thanks to him!! May Hashem bless you always!!

Nicholas

After 6 ½ months of unemployment, I finally found a job and began working last week — just in the nick of time as my savings were about depleted. Please thank my prayer agent for davening on my behalf. I am so grateful to Hashem for answering my prayers.

Rosie, San Diego

Just want to share some good news. Here at work, there were budget cuts transpiring and people being laid off. My husband suggested I have the prayers said for me at the Kotel. Keep saying them (my 40 days aren't finished) because they are helping. I have been passed over this round of firings and am still at my desk, while unfortunately, others are preparing to leave. Keep up the good work.

Annie, Philadelphia

A major one! I got Baruch Hashem: 12 hours teaching in the Fall which means health insurance and benefits. We got my folks into the place we wanted and my husband’s parnassa is good (kpp)! Western Wall works! Thank you again.

Malka, Los Angeles

I am a Sales Manager working at a multinational company, and noticing the deteriorating financial situation since the end of 2007, I requested 3 rounds of prayers by the Kotel. But, my financial situation went from bad to worse. I decided to accept G-d's will for my life and not to complain anymore. Just after Yom Kippur and the last round of 40 days, everything in my life started to take a dramatic turn. My sales went up spectacularly, I started to close deals for Millions of dollars during the worst economic calamity and depression to hit the markets! Last Monday I received an unexpected fax from our CEO congratulating me for having been elected "Sales Leader of the year". This is the highest award in our company. I was surprised they chose me out of 32,000 employees worldwide. I will be given the award + $10,000 bonus! I would like to thank you and your 40 days segulah service. I had my personal miracles connecting to G-d through the Kotel. This year my life changed.

Howard, Italy

The power of prayer is awesome! I noticed things getting better by the second week. My boss and I haven't become fast friends but she has backed off. I can't thank you and the rabbi enough.

Fran, Seattle

I got the job that my representative and I were praying for! B.”H. It’s a great job and is perfect for me. Thank you so much.

Hannah, Little Rock

The Rabbi's prayers were quite powerful because after 3 weeks John found a job in Dubai as an electrical contractor with a 3-4 year contract. Please thank the Rabbi. HaShem is wonderful!

Toni, Beverly Hills

I am happy to inform you that my son Richard has finally gotten a job. This week, it is confirmed that he passed the probation and was made to sign a 1 year renewable contract. Please send my agent a thank you for his prayer intercession. Now every time something big or small arrives I always thank God for he has blessed me with everything in my favor!

Sonia, Seattle

I would like to thank Hashem for all His blessings and my agent for the time he took to pray for me. Things have started to look up for us this past week. My husband got a job that pays minimum wage, which we were not too happy with. Then on Saturday night, we got the good news that he was granted disability pay from the army. Not only will it help with the extras, but he was able to get a federal job. Thank you so much for your time, and may Hashem bless all that you do.

Nina, Texas

The prayers are working! I am now driving a car without a car note. Praises to G-d. May the Rabbi be blessed and highly favored.

Vivian, Chicago

Thank you so much for your good work. During this trying time for my son, he has managed to calm the waters for now with his creditors, with help from above. The really good news is that he received a promotion at work and starts tomorrow. I know the tefilla at the Kotel really helped.

Chani, New York

I knew when the first day of my 40 days began, because good things started to happen immediately. I had a meeting with some local officials who are in charge of the area where I am hoping to build my new center. I was amazed to find that everyone was in full support!  This is a great help because these officials are the ones who will issue the building permits.

Dr. Bloom, Maryland

Our forty days of prayer just ended this past Monday.  Our prayer was that my husband would make more money for our family, since the money he was making until now was grossly inadequate.  Today my husband was offered a job with a different company with a salary $30,000 higher than this present job.  We are thrilled, pleased and soooooooooooooo  grateful!  Please inform our prayer agent of our blessed news.  Please tell him of our enormous gratitude. 

S. Haynes, Tennessee

Jonathan and I would like you to thank the agent very much for praying at the Wall in our behalf. We also want to thank you for having such a beautiful and useful project. The prayers are being answered and Thank God Jonathan's family is doing better financially. He is feeling more stable and with more peace of mind and spirit. Jonathan got a little bit anxious when he knew that the 40 days were over as he felt himself tremendously supported during the whole period. Thanks from the heart,

Robyn, Washington

Thanks for praying for me. Things are looking up for me financially. My sister is selling her house in Maryland and moving back to Nashville, where I live. She will be living at my house and she said she would help me out financially. I know that my prayers have been answered. I feel better knowing the God is taking care of me.

Melissa, Nova Scotia

I just finished my 40 days of prayer for my health and my job situation. A week ago I had some happy news because I found out that my job was safe, though I had been worried that I would lose it. I am still praying that my tinnitus will improve. But I haven't lost my hope that G-d will answer me. With thanks,

Brandon, New York

It is amazing how lately whenever I have been given my paycheck, it has been for more than I expected. I get paid per job every week, and it has always been more than expected. G-D is awesome!!!!!!!!!! 

Dennis, Georgia

I’ve had so many successes with 40 days’ prayers. Soon I will be starting a new position with one of this country’s leading investment companies.  I’ll be paid well and in an excellent work environment.
What you are doing is very important, and something I feel strongly about as well. 

Barbara, Quebec

I first contacted you after my husband was out of work for quite some time.  He was well-qualified, but no work was available.  His unemployment was really hard on him, and on our marriage.  After our first 40 days, things really improved.  Michael got several job offers, but decided that he was going to hold out for the ultimate job.  Now, at the end of our 2nd 40 days, I'm contacting you to tell you that he has accepted a CFO position with a wonderful company.

Lianne, Ohio

My business has picked up since my prayers ended and I am very grateful for that. 
Now, can we work on getting a wife?

Andrew, New York

The nursing home for which I work had been having financial troubles. I asked you to pray that we be able to provide quality care without any financial difficulties, and during the forty days we saw many changes: 1. Inpatient Hospice Unit under the newly hired nurse practitioner is providing enhanced care for the patients, 2. I started Holistic Healing & Weight Loss classes for the staff of the nursing home, 3. we passed the State survey exceedingly well. Thanks so much! 

Gail Lowenstein MD, New Jersey 

We asked you to pray that my husband’s business would be successful. I wanted to let you know that yesterday my husband met with a new potential client. They accepted his proposal, signed the contract, and wrote him a check.  Baruch Hashem. Just in time for a major expense to be deducted from our account. I am deeply grateful. 

Stacy Spigelman, Baltimore

Please convey my gratitude to Rebbetzin Sarah FoxAshrei. My husband was offered employment during the 40 days of prayer. Additionally, following your recommendation, I started reviewing the laws of Lashon Hara during the 40 days and feel that my life has been enriched as a result of my connection to your organization and the kedusha you've brought into my life. Thank you!

Cheryl, South Dakota

I just wanted to share some good news. I got a promotion at work this past Erev Shabbos! Please share this news and thank Rabbi Goldschmidt for me.

Brian, New York

Thank you for praying for my son Adam and his career, it has created a miracle that I will forever be grateful to G-d for!

Richard, Georgia

I have great news, I got a job! They called me today. I am so excited that I am almost flying. No words can describe my gratitude to you, because I know it's your prayers which brought me this blessing.

Custody

For 8 months we were praying that Karina would have a successful court case and win custody of her daughter, Lindsey. There were many delays along the way, but we know that G-d is in charge of the situation and that everything happens for a reason, it is all part of G-d's plan and we need to let it unfold. Someone once told me, if I allow a rose to open, one petal at a time, then I have a object of beauty. But if I force it open, pulling its leaves apart, all I'm left with is a mess. After 8 long months we won the court case!Karina was granted joint legal and sole physical custody. She has been smiling all day and Lindsey is dancing and singing. Thank you so much for teaching us to pray, read the Psalms and give charity. It's been a very positive force in our lives.

Sharon, Karina and Lindsey, Indiana

Clarity and Life Improvement

Thank you for all your help and please send my thanks to the Rabbi that prayed for me. Baruch Hashem I had the clarity I needed to leave my husband. Hashem has also sent me a job, which I love! Additionally, I passed the test for conversion with the Beit Din and had my Mikvah immersion. My prayers indeed have been answered!

Navit Rachel, California

Life Improvement

Baruch Hashem, during the 40 days of davening, Aron showed great improvement in all of the areas we were davening for. His teacher recently told me of a huge leap in development occurring during the last 4-6 weeks, and his speech therapist said she saw a big "turning point" starting on the first day of Hannukah (right at the start of the 40 days). So amazing!

Successful Family Relationships

Hardly a day goes by that I don't think of you and my prayer 
request.  It is my deep, heartfelt belief that my life has changed 
180 degrees because of the 40 days’ prayer
.   Our spiritual prosperity is more than I could have ever hoped for.   Thank you for all of your help, support and encouragement, and when you speak to the Tzaddik Tzvi Pesach Dan Siegel who prayed at the Kotel for me for 40 days, please give him my heartfelt thanks and blessing for him and his family. 

Sarah Schilp,  Florida

Your prayers for my relationship have helped me and Sanders so immensely and we are closer than ever. I am so grateful.

Malia Carter, Los Angeles

Return From War Zone

G-d was merciful to me and my family.  He returned my son, Matthew Finstein (Meir ben Shlomo) safe and sound after a 15-month deployment, including 12 months in Iraq, where he was an infantry soldier.  He was a gunner on a humvee, and he frequently was involved in hostile combat situations.  I am absolutely certain that the prayers at the Western Wall were received and were heard.  Additionally, knowing that the prayers were offered gave much comfort to me and to him throughout his deployment in the war zone. 

I am very grateful to G-d and to your organization. 

Stephen D. Finstein, Dallas, TX

Pass an Exam

My prayer was to pass my last section of a professional examination that I've been preparing for over a year while juggling a full time job and a toddler. I asked Hashem that I complete this task and finally be able to spend more time with my family. I received my passing score a month ago and it was my highest score yet. I was pleasantly surprised. I'm convinced that your prayer helped give me the extra push! Thank you!

Svetlana Zilberman, Houston

Selling a house and making Aliyah

Please let the Rabbi know that our prayers have been answered. Here's how it happened. You sent me a message on Friday, Jun 18 that prayers on our behalf that we sell our house in America had begun. Later that very afternoon, we got a contract on our house. The house had been shown dozens of times, but we had no offers and we were scheduled to make aliyah on July 7. We made aliyah with the house under contract but not yet sold. I wanted to let you know that yesterday, the settlement went through, thus well and truly ending our physical connection to Baltimore. Our blessings to you and your families for your work on behalf of Am Yisrael.

Rivkah Lambert Adler, Israel

Spiritual Success

Last year I asked you to arrange for someone to pray for me at the kotel so that I would be able to come to Israel and learn. I am now learning in yeshiva in Jerusalem and have opened a file to convert with the beit din.

Joseph Sherman, Israel

Protection

I cannot offer your organization enough thanks. The simple truth is that while I was in harm's way, just knowing that I was the object of prayers at the Kotel gave me a peaceful confidence in a tempest of war that I would have unlikely felt otherwise. Thanks to your prayers, I constantly felt the Hand of G-d as my breastplate.

Marc Moshe Davis, Los Angeles, California

Successful Court Case

I was falsely accused of an extremely serious crime. I was petrified of what seemed like imminent jail time.  After my first 40 days, my court case was post-poned.  After the next 40 days, my next court case was post-poned again and when a final date was set, I got an agent to pray 40 days one more time.  Just a couple of days before I was set to go before a very tough judge, the person who accused me gave a full confession.  The charges were dropped, and my innocence was revealed.  It was truly a miracle and I am very grateful to your prayer warriors and to G-d.

Marcello, New York

Spiritual Success

I asked you to pray for me that I will succeed in becoming a Jew. Since that time, I have had increased clarity in understanding the decisions that I have made and where the tests and other things I have experienced are leading me. I have also been blessed with a work schedule that allows me to have afternoons free- something which has not happened in 12 years. This will enable me to study Hebrew in the afternoon. Also, for some years, I have known about an opportunity to work in Israel, for the very same company I'm working now. I have now started studying on my own to perfect my performance at work so that I can be more valuable to the company and G-d willing be eligible to work in Israel.  Thank you very much again for your words, they also have helped me reflect and I deeply appreciate them. And thank you, all the agents and all of the people who devote their time to such a beautiful cause. May all of you always be blessed. 

Aracely Hernandez Urbina, Mexico

New Tenants

Please tell my prayer agent that I received responsible new tenants for the properties. A few months ago, a lawyer begged me to file bankruptcy but G-d saved the day and blessed me with 2 sets of new tenants who like where they are living and are paying their rent on time. The prayers that were said for me asking G-d to protect the properties have all been answered.

Forrest, Casey

Selling a house and making Aliyah

Baruch Hashem, in this difficult housing market, our house sold! Thank you so much for arranging for our shlichim at the kotel. We look forward to arriving on Aliyah in February.

Avi Politzer, Cincinnati

Release from Incarceration

I had asked you to daven for a former teacher of mine who was incarcerated against his will in a nursing home. Against all expectations, he came home during the prayer period and is now living alone in his own home and driving to his doctors’ appointments. Until then he had had attorneys working on the case, and had fights with his family because they could not get him out. Honestly, it could only be prayer. Thank you so much.

Margaret, Dallas

Success on Exam

This morning I took my exam and it went very well. I am now on my way to successfully completing my Ph.D. Baruch Hashem!!! Please say many thanks on my behalf to my prayer agent.

Inheritance

My prayer absolutely came true even better than I could imagine! I was so close to losing all of my inheritance money, but in the end I got to keep most of it.

Chaviva, Orlando

Successful Family Relationships

When I signed up the relationship between my husband and our daughter was in shatters. I had asked that Hashem please heal their hearts and restore their love to one another. Please thank the Rebbitzen from the bottom of my heart! Not only did my husband say I love you to my daughter, she responded the same! They have spent good time together without me present and are B"H are healing together nicely, even without the help of her therapist. It is truly miraculous. I am deeply grateful to you for making me aware of this service, and to the Rebbitzen for davening with such intensity.

Bracha, Israel

Blessed

Thank you for praying so well for me, it really worked beautifully. I have been blessed with much work, and in one month I will be signing a lifetime contract with my company! I also have been blessed with a little promotion in politics, something I never thought I would ever be able to do. God has lifted me from being a hopeless little nobody to being able to make things happen in my environment. I, despite all, am a very happy and blessed human being.

Birna, Iceland

Legal Matters

I am delighted to share that my prayers have been answered with the help of Hashem. Yesterday we received some miraculous news regarding the serious legal problems we were facing. I cannot speak more highly of your Kollel. Many Blessings to You and my shaliach, I cannot thank you enough.

Pinchas Yosef and Meir, London

Teshuva

The past 40 days were a roller coaster of emotions. I remember a critical point in time, where I had reached a feeling of despair that my home atmosphere would never be permeated with a love of Torah and Hashem. Then something happened - one morning as my husband and eldest son came back from shul my husband announced that he would like to learn with my son for two hours a day. I could not believe what I was hearing! I was filled with an incredible amount of hakaras hatov for my agent whose tefillos were reaching a gate in Shamayim that was previously closed, at least to me... There are no words to describe the happiness and the protection from Hashem that I felt when I heard the two learn.

Ruthie, New York

Prison

I contacted you to assist me in the mitzvah of Pidyion Shvuyin on behalf of a woman I know who was under tremendous pressure while being indicted for alleged tax fraud. There was evidence to show that the crime was the result of negligence of government officers, however since she was being tried in a state notorious for its anti-semitism, we were worried for the outcome. No sooner that I sent the email to Shira, I found out the trial is finished and she is not going to prison. She took a plea bargain for a minor offense and the state dropped the other ones.

Bracha, Israel

Peace with an In-law

I first wrote to you in a state of worry and despair for the troubles that seemed to be tearing my once loving family apart. My younger son, Wayne, is married and his wife had launched a vicious and slanderous campaign against myself and my older son in the attempt to turn Wayne and their two children against us and pursuade them to cut off all contact. The situation was incredibly painful for me and I felt that there was nothing I could do, nowhere I could turn. Then I heard about your service and I knew immediately that powerful prayer was the only hope for a resolution to this conflict. I asked you to pray that there be peace in my son's house and that his wife's hatred towards his mother and brother be removed. I want you to know that G-d has answered our prayers: my son's wife and I have made peace! It was me that put out my hand first, which was hard, but the fact that she was willing to come towards me is truly a miracle.

Hashem bless you and yours and all those who help through prayers.

Mary, Iowa

Shalom Bayit

My husband has seen success from the very beginning of the 40 days, he found a therapy which seems to be ridding him of his childhood scars. Regarding myself there is an ongoing improvement in my ability to be kind and not judgmental. Little by little things are improving all around.

Shira, Sidney

Relationships

I asked you to pray that I would find clarity whether the guy I was dating was right for me. During that time I forgot all about him. It didn't matter if he was interested or not, I saw that it wasn't best for me. The Prayer was answered. In addition, I met someone new during that 40 days. I really believe with my whole heart in the 40 day process.Thanks for your help.

Carolyn, London

Wife to properly convert

I have to tell you that before you started praying on our behalf the situation seemed hopeless. I was still praying that my wife would somehow agree to look into converting to Judaism properly, however the issue seemed to be dead. Shortly after the 40 days began many things started to happen. My wife suddenly started to talk about making inquiries on her own. A Rabbi that I spoke to almost a year ago called to ask us if we were ready to enroll our children in the Hebrew academy. A few other things took place that really showed that there was hope. I feel that something in Heaven has been stirred. May G-d Bless you.

Jacob, Netherlands

Marriage Progress

I believe that I will be reporting some good news soon as my Friend from Israel just asked me for my "ring size."  He is supposed to visit me here in the U.S.  soon.  My journey could not be completed within the 40 days since I had so far to go. I feel like the prayers at Wall were the beginning.  Mine is very complex situation in that I have a daughter who needs a special father and this man lives in Israel while we are in Florida. Only G-d can orchestrate such a match....(with a lot of help from wonderful people like you and my shliach.)

Yaakova, New Jersey

Life Improvement

I asked you to pray for me to get over my fear of being around others. Great news, my prayers have been answered! But it does not stop there, I have become a new person who is able to socialize, go on retreats, and even began looking for a job. Thank you!

Tiferet, Arizona

Getting into School

I sincerely thank all of you for completing my first 40 days of prayers at the Western Wall. Please tell my agent I said “Thank You.” The LECOM School of Pharmacy called me on the 10th of July and asked me if I was still interested in attending their school. I told them yes and they told me I will hear from them again next Monday. They will let me know my status on the alternate candidate list. I shall surely let you guys know when they confirm it that I have been officially admitted into the pharmacy program. Thank You and may G-D Bless.

Peter, Texas

Dating

I wanted to update you on some amazing developments. My friend Rebecca has broken off her relationship with that gentile man. She realized that he was not good for her and her children. For her to realize this is a huge step in the right direction.  Since then she has started dating a Jew. I am not sure if it is serious but one thing I am sure of: The power of prayer is really amazing.   Mind-boggling.....and that's an understatement. I cannot thank you enough for being a part of this.

Sabrina, Michigan

Improved Relationship

Thank you so much for the 40 Day Prayer, which just ended last week.  During this 40 Days, I must say that Mike and I became much closer then before. This has made me very happy.  I know the prayer for us to be together is working, although it needs a little bit more praying.  I must ask you to please pray for me again for the next 40 days. Hopefully after that I will have GREAT news for you.

Court Case

I asked you to pray for me when I was in the middle of a very serious law suit against my former employers. I wanted to let you know that we were successful in winning the case. Thanks!

Marriage: Avoiding Mr. Wrong

I am considering asking for another 40 days after everything that happened in the last period. I asked you to pray that I would be reunited with my ex-boyfriend and that we would get married. Our painful, on-again, off-again relationship had been unresolved for over two years but I really believed that he was the one for me. Anyway, during the 40 days it became very apparent to me that that guy is truly a selfish person and definitely not someone I want to marry. I have now totally accepted our break-up as a blessing. Now will you pray for me to find the real Mr. Right?

Inner Peace

I have been looking for a husband for a while and I was feeling quite depressed. I asked you to pray that I would feel good and make progress in my life, no matter what G-d has planned for me. After my 40 days started a few things happened that really made me realize that getting married is not the immediate answer to issues that I need to deal with beforehand.  I have faith that when the time is right, things will fall into place.
With thanks for your wonderful service,

Improved Relationship

I asked you to pray for my daughter and her fiancé. They were having serious relationship issues and were considering calling off the wedding. I have felt a lot of comfort knowing that the prayers were being said at the Western Wall, along with our prayers.  Rachel and Daniel are now going to a counselor to work out a few fundamental questions and I can see that they are making progress.  I feel that the prayers have helped, and hope that they are able to get some clarity and that this relationship works out.

Buying a House

I asked you to pray for us to find a new house and to sell our old one. Well, we signed the contract to the new house back in June and now we are just waiting for the closing. Everything has been going great and the sellers are very nice. We also were able to find a buyer for house that we were selling.

Thank you for your prayers.

Victory Over Enemies

I have always believe that prayer is a very powerful tool and I have seen this once again through the power of your prayers. I don't want to give specifics but there were certain people who were making my life very difficult. Since you prayed for me at the Wall, I have had victory over my enemies.  G-d has taken me in a new and unexpected direction in life that is a welcome change. Please thank my prayer agent from me.

Marrying Jewish

I wrote to tell you that my son has been dating non-Jews and that I have been so worried about his seeming lack of connection to Judaism. It seemed likely that he would marry one of those girls and not carry on Judaism to his kids. After I signed up to have someone pray for him at the Wall, my son told me some surprising news: he has renewed his relationship with an old girlfriend.  I hope you are sitting down because this is the one girl he ever dated who is Jewish and a most lovely, lovely young lady!  I don't know where this will lead, but I feel a tremendous renewal of hope. I would like to sign up for another 40 days, and wish you and all connected with this most amazing program all good things from above.

Avoiding the Wrong Girl

I came to you with an unusual prayer. I asked you to pray for me that my girlfriend would break up with me, despite my love for her.  She wasn't right for me as our spiritual goals are different but I was terrified of hurting her.  I'm writing to tell you that she finally let me go.  It was painful but a huge relief that she ended it before I had to.  Thanks to my prayer agent, Sarah, and thanks for the service.

Better Marriage

I’m happy to report that I think that the prayers at the Wall worked. It has not been a 180º change, but at least my husband and I feel a sense of better understanding between us. It has been a big improvement, and I believe that it will be a base for a better relationship overall. I know that G-d listens to everybody, but I think he answers faster to those who have special merit, so thanks to you and to my agent.

Successful Court Case

I was involved in a bitter court case with some relatives who accused me of elder abuse when I was helping to look after my aunt. The accusations were malicious and false and the culmination of a long history of jealous and bitter actions against me by these relatives. I submitted a prayer request that I would be successful in the court case. I want you to know my ordeal has finally come to a close. I won the case and the truth did come out! One thing is for sure, knowing someone else was praying for me at the Wall made me feel more in touch with G-d. Thank you all for your time and prayers.

Rachel, Connecticut

Spiritual Success

Our son had turned his back on Judaism and was living with his girlfriend. After the first 40 days he moved back home and after the second 40 days he returned to yeshiva. We can’t thank you enough.

A Beautiful Home

We asked you to pray for us to find a home with a place for a succah, and near to my yeshiva. We couldn’t possibly afford such an apartment, but after the 40 day we found a beautiful home with a succah, near the yeshiva- at a price we could afford. Thank you.

Weight Loss

I’ve lost 45 lbs since my 40 days of prayers began. I look really good now, and it does make a difference in how I feel.  Thank you for your guidance and support.

Shelly, New York.

Lost items found

I knew my engagement ring was somewhere in the house. I’d found my wedding band, but not the engagement ring. I asked you to have someone daven at the Wall for me that I would find my ring and other lost objects in our household- and it worked! I now have my engagement ring again, as well as my previously lost eyeglasses.

Children’s Schooling

I was having trouble getting my daughter into a good school.  So much trouble that I felt we needed strong prayers.  Well, we wound up finding an exceptional school with only a few kids and a great teacher.  My daughter was the very last girl to be accepted and we are thrilled. 

Marcy, Israel

Justice

When my daughter was accused of a crime she didn't commit, our whole life was thrown upside-down.  Then G-d led me to this prayer service at the Wall.  The charges were dropped and her innocence was publicly revealed.  Thank you and thank G-d!

Overcome Addiction

My son was struggling with an addiction.  I felt helpless, and arranged for a Western Wall agent to pray for him for 40 days. I couldn't believe it, but he personally checked himself into a re-habilitation clinic.  G-d-willing, he will remain stable forever.  Thank you so much for your care.

Successful Family Relationship

My son had stopped speaking to me because his mother and I are getting divorced. I asked you to daven for me that my relationship with him would improve. Things are much better and continuing in a positive direction.  Not completely out of the woods yet, but getting there. I said Psalm 20 along with the prayer you sent several times a week.  Please thank the fellow from Zilberman's who davened for us at the Kotel. Thank you for your help.  And may I add that you do your role very professionally.
Do not be surprised if you hear from me the next time I am in Israel.

Michael, Los Angeles

Spiritual Success

My daughter and her friend were getting into a bad crowd.  Being a religious person, this was a shock to our family and we immediately took action through getting a prayer agent for both of them.  I'm so happy to say that things got much better for them at the end of the 40 days.  I would like to continue the prayers until they are 100% in the clear.

Innocence Revealed

I am an upstanding member of my community.  So, when a bank brought forth charges of alleged fraud on my behalf I contacted you.  I'm writing to tell you that all charges have been dropped against me.   They realized that they had no basis.  G-d is truly wonderful.

Buying a House

I have good news to report. I was pre-approved to purchase a home. I was stunned and surprised! Most importantly, I was grateful to G-d and to WWP for all the prayers and good wishes that went out on my behalf. Please thank the team and the person who prayed for me.

Harassment at Work

I really didn't think anything could possibly help the terrible discrimination I was experiencing at work. Things were only getting worse.
But, a miracle happened - my employer went overboard and broke the law. Now, the tables have turned and my employers are scared for their jobs and reputation.  So, things have really improved for me.  I have a leg to stand on in court now.

Molly, Virginia

Identity Theft

I have been struggling significantly with major identity theft for the last 2 years, and emotional wipe out from tremendous stress. I finally resolved these issues during the 40 days. This was AMAZING. I was in tears when I received word that the papers were processing. Additionally, when I was told it would take 2 weeks, it suddenly came in two DAYS. I can't thank you enough.

Life Improvement

Thanks to Hashem through the auspices of Western Wall Prayers my life has become more and more remarkable every day. I can say that my life has DRAMATICALLY turned, bli ayin hara, for the better, and I'm sure that your prayers are anchoring the brachot.

Sam, New York

Improved Relationship

Thank you all and please tell Mr. Michaels thank you for me and that G-d is using him in awesome ways. I have been seeing great improvements in my relationship with my boyfriend, William, in less than a month of prayer. Seeing great improvement and growth in my relationship has made me ecstatic and has increased my declined faith level. I am seeing once again that G-d has not forgotten me and still loves me.

Lisa, Washington

Sobriety

During my 40 days Henry relapsed, lost his job, and went back into treatment. Although it was painful for me to watch, I knew Hashem was doing exactly what we had asked, taking care of Henry in the "sweetest way possible". Then a miracle happened; Henry was given another chance at his job and has been sober since! I know the prayers are working!
