Tweet Your Prayers in pictures

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

Shalom all!

I prepared this short blog post to show you, in pictures, how the prayer-processing looks on my end. Hope you enjoy:

1. Printing: After the prayers have been received, the next step is printing them. Fortunately, I posses the amazing one-of-a-kind prayer printer!


2. Rolling: When the printer has finished printing (or, the toner ran out), the pages are cut to strips using a utility knife. Then the strips are rolled into small scrolls. Here’s how it looks like when we’re just getting started:


And a good few hours later:


3. Driving: Now that the prayers are ready, it’s time to go to Jerusalem!(I should mention that this road-sign was photographed while I was at the passenger’s seat 🙂 ):


4. Getting inside the Old City: We have arrived in Jerusalem. The Old City has a wall surrounding it, and the Jaffa Gate is the nearest place to go through:


We have reached the Western Wall – the Kotel! Here’s a picture of a wooden box filled with prayers with the Western Wall in the background:


Here’s a picture of me standing on a chair, sticking my hand inside the Wall:


And eventually…


These are just some of the prayers that were placed. At the end of the day, all the prayers from the box found their final resting place in the Western-Wall.


You can also watch the entire process on a video report Reuters made about me & TweetYourPrayers (Link).

I don´t know how to thank you for this opportunity; for I have always wanted to visit these holy places, and I don´t know if I will ever be able to. Just to think that my thoughts can be close to this so very special Wall makes me think, there is some hope.
Thank you again and again and again and again!

We feel so blessed that you brought our prayers to Jerusalem to be placed along side many other prayers that have been shared for thousands of years by people from all over the world. Some of those prayers were from Jesus who speaks through Gregory so it was like a part of him went back to his homeland. God bless you and thank you for all that you do to help bring us all together on this beautiful planet, our home Earth, through love, healing, peace, acceptance, joy and compassion. Also we loved looking at the photos (Gregory wondered if you needed a ladder next time- smiles and love) Shelina (and Gregory)

What an extraordinary positive idea. Helping people getting their prayers to the wall and using web 2.0 methods.

Truly a blessed idea!

Great work. It is so nice to see a person give up their time and energy to ensure the prayers of strangers are delivered to God at the Western Wall. Keep up the great work. May God bless you.
