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!

process01

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:

process02

And a good few hours later:

process03

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 :) ):

process04

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:

process05

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:

process07

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

process08

And eventually…

process09process10

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.

process11

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

I like your idea. Lots of people are turning to G-d. … that’s a first step… And if having their prayers placed in the wall makes them feel better – Praise the Lord!
But I know that turning to the Lord, pleases Him…
As “human” people, we don’t think in terms like the Lord. He is pleased to have us turn to Him…wall or no wall….

Thank you so much. I could never have gotten over there to do it myself and always wanted to.
A funny thing happened in August. A white, very friendly dove came into my yard. I was in the pool and he sat right near me for quite some time. Then he left. Hopefully, a sign that God hears our prayers and reads them at the Wall.

[Reply]

Alon Reply:

That’s a lovely story :) In the “Jerusalem” section of the site you can see a picture I took of a dove just hangin’ on the stones of the Wall. Funny how it doesn’t know the importance of where it stands.

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)
