#1. A Shidduch Made Through Prayer………
This is a true story (names were changed); the wedding
took place on the night before Chanukah this year 24th day of Kislev (5771) ……
A few months ago one of my students left Monsey to find a job in Philadelphia similar
to one of his friends who did the same a few months earlier and was doing rather well for himself.
Avrohom started working
in a restaurant in Philly which was owned by a Jewish Russian family. One day they had a Bris scheduled and the owner
asked his daughter Sarah, who was living in Brooklyn to come home and help with the Bris.
At the Bris
just as the baby was brought into the room Avrohom decided to walk out. Sarah asked him why he was leaving
the room? Avrohom responded that he gets nauseated at the sight of blood.
Sarah explained that this was a very auspicious
moment as Eliyahu Hanovi comes to every Bris and it is a special time to Daven if one wants answers to his or her Tefilos!
Avrohom walked out of the room and something
in his heart told him to return anyway. He took a Siddur and walked back into the room and started Davening near the back
of the room. Sarah was impressed with
the way he was Davening so intently. This began a new relationship between Avrohom and Sarah. (Avrohom
and Sarah are both Baalei T’Shuvah)
A few months after this
relationship began, Avrohom and Sarah announced their engagement.
About 2 weeks before their wedding while
Sarah was staying at our house for Shabbos, she tells my wife this story. She continues the story………On the day of their engagement she asked her Chosson ……… “By
the way What were you davening for so intently when you came back into the room on the day that we first met?
Avrohom responded that “I was davening
for you to find a good Shidduch!”
“Kol Hamispallel B’Ad Chaveiro
V’Hu Tzorich Li-oso Davar Neeneh Tchilah!”
“When one prays for his friend and he needs a similar thing Hashem answers
Many times we only think of ourselves,
however if we were to focus on helping others or Davening for others Hashem will respond to us in kind!
1.IT IS A MITZVAH TO BE HAPPY AT ALL TIMES.
2.ONE MUST TRUST IN HASHEM AND ONLY IN HASHEM AT ALL TIMES.(FOR THE HELP COMES ONLY FROM HIM)

(PRAISEWORTHY ARE THOSE WHO DWELL
IN YOUR (HASHEM'S) HOUSE)
HAS TO KNOW THAT HASHEM IS
NEAR TO ALL WHO CALL
AS IT SAYS IN

IT DOES NOT SAY
"HASHEM IS NEAR TO ALL
BUT "HASHEM IS NEAR TO
CALL HIM" (PRAISE MY SOUL BY

ONE HAS TO ALSO CONSTANTLY WORK
ON ONESELF TO GET CLOSER TO
HASHEM AND HAS TO ASK HIMSELF EACH AND EVERY DAY.WHAT CAN I DO TO CHANGE AND IMPROVE IN MY WAYS?
SHOWING HASHEM HONEST EFFORT.
AS IT SAYS IN אַשְׁרֵי:
