Call and He Will Answer

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein praying at Western Wall

August 14, 2018

Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3).

What a beautiful promise. And it is a promise I am reminded of especially at this time of year, when we at The Fellowship take prayer requests from our faithful partners to bring before God at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. It is one of our most important traditions, and one we feel privileged to continue.

It is difficult to describe the feelings of awe and reverence that surround a person praying at the Western Wall, the site where the two Holy Temples once stood and the holiest site in all Judaism. Christians, too, tell me how overwhelmed they are to realize that the Wall existed at the time of Jesus, and that Jesus came there to teach many times.

Once again this year, we would like to take your prayer before God at the Western Wall. All you need to do is to complete our prayer request form.

I am continually moved when I think of your generosity and how this generosity has been an answer to the prayers of so many suffering people. Your sacrificial support of Israel and needy Jewish people around the world must surely please the heart of God.

Praying for you at the Wall, asking God to bless you and meet your needs, is one way of returning the blessing of your prayers and support for God’s people. And what a joy it is for us to hear from partners like you, as we do every year, that our prayers on your behalf have been answered!

It is your generosity, and God’s favor, that allows us to answer the prayers of Jews living in dire need in Israel and around the world. Thank you, my friend, for your continued support and your generous heart for God’s children.

With prayers for shalom, peace,

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
Founder and President
