savta yaffa

have just mentaly added you to 'my list'. I mean the list of family members and friends I pray for before lighting candles. House work? breast feeding? prayer? who knows what works? still, you shall be on my list in future and please God it will help. Shabbat Shalom


I have been genuinely curious for a while about this; why do people who pray for others, feel they have to tell them.

If prayer works, surely there is no need for the recipient to be aware they're being prayed for.

If there is an omniscient God, why is it necessary to nag a sick person for their hebrew name.

And when a person says they are praying for you, how is that supposed to make the sick person feel. Grateful?
