Prayer Pairs

Our Sages teach that, rather than focusiong only on our own pressing needs, praying for someone else with a need similar to our own is very powerful.

Rava said to Rabbah bar Mari: From where in the Torah can be derived the lesson taught by our Rabbis that one who solicits mercy for his fellow while he himself is in need of the same thing will be answered first? He replied, It is written (Iyov 17:10) “And G-d changed the fortune of Iyov when he prayed for his friends”. Raba said said to him: "I say it is from this text: (Genesis 20:17) “And Abraham prayed unto G-d, and G-d healed Avimelech and his wife and his maidservants”. The verse Immediately after this says: “And G-d remembered Sarah… etc”. (Talmud Bavli, Babba Kamma 92a)

Whether you are praying for a sick child or someone else in need of healing, whether you are praying to find a spouse, or for an easy and worry-free parnasah (livelihood), Ner Echad will pair you with someone with a similar need. By including each other in your prayers, you will become a source of inspiration and hope to your prayer partner and conversely as well.
