I said Shir hashirim for my daughter 40 days in a row between chatzos and alos. This segula was suggested by one of my daughter’s teachers at the time. The phone call suggesting the shidduch for her beshert came on the 40 th day exactly. That was 10 years ago (She now has 4 kids). I have since done it for a number of other people with 100% success, including an aguna of 9 years (She got her get and remarried). I plan on starting for another daughter right after Tisha bav. (I once had a shyla about saying it on Tishabav and I feel it’s best to avoid it)August 4, 2011 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm #797511jmj613Participant

Wow miriamr that is so cool and so nice! When that happened were you freaking out?? My heart was beating so fast when I found out and I started crying out of happiness. It’s so nuts. Thanks for sharing.
jmj613- 100% agree. Our tfilos are so powerful if only we would realize that on a day to day basis.August 4, 2011 3:00 pm at 3:00 pm #797514always hereParticipant
B’H & Mazel Tov!!
8 yrs. ago, when my older daughter was in shidduchim, I started learning “Chofetz Chaim: A Lesson A Day” & before/within/around the 40 days she had met & became engaged to her now husband of 8 yrs. & B’H they have 3 children, k’a’h. 🙂August 4, 2011 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #797515

miriamr, with these times, when should Shir Hashirim be said according to your Segulah? Between 1:02 pm and 4:21 am or between 4:21 am and 1:02 pm?

I think it’s chatzos meaning midNIGHT- so between 1:02am and 4:21am.August 4, 2011 4:25 pm at 4:25 pm #797518person3Member
Where can you find out what time chatzos (halayala?) is? Are there any websites that say?August 4, 2011 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #797519HealthParticipant
And I called for YWN to have a separate Tilllim list for Shidduchim. It was seconded by only one. Does anybody else want to join my call?August 4, 2011 4:30 pm at 4:30 pm #797520
There’s a number I have that you call and put in your zip code and you have the option of choosing if you wanna hear the time for chatzos, alos, mincha etc.
Am I allowed to post the number?

Health, I’m with you on that. Kol Hakovod!August 4, 2011 4:43 pm at 4:43 pm #797522be goodParticipant
I hate to burst your bubbles up there, and I’m really happy for the posters above…
But I have completed many 40 day cycles of Sh’H’Sh for myself and others and I’m still looking. I should state that whenever I did it- something did move (I got a phone call, a date, whatever) but never a Yeshua.
I just don’t want people thinking this is a foolproof recipe- you need to daven and it has to be the right time…August 4, 2011 4:58 pm at 4:58 pm #797523MDGParticipant
You can download the program Kaluach. Set your place and it will tell you the times for sunrise, sunset, chatzot, kriat sh’ma, Shabbat, etc. You can also set you own custom halachic times.August 4, 2011 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #797524HealthParticipant
be good – Well maybe you should reconsider your offers. Maybe you’re being too picky.August 4, 2011 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #797525MDGParticipant
I know a person that said Shir HaShirim for forty days, but nothing happened…until exactly a year later, to the day. I guess it had to be the right time.August 4, 2011 5:53 pm at 5:53 pm #797526PrincessEagleMember
be good, i waiting for s1 to say that! i’ll second you there… when my aunt got engaged after a few years of waiting and countless times of saying shir hashirim, lighting candles and lots of other segulas – she said, def. the segulas all helped, but in the end there was the right time. And btw she couldn’t have met him any earlier, he wasn’t available yet..August 4, 2011 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #797527whatrutalkingabtMember

miriamr, please can you define “between chatzos and alos”. Thanks.August 12, 2011 6:44 am at 6:44 am #797535
Sorry for this belated reply. I just haven’t come back here since I wrote that post. Chatzos is the Chatzos at night. There is usually only one time for that. Here in Israel it is 12:44 a.m. There are 2 times given for Alos Hashachar in Israel right now 4:23 a.m. and 4:33 a.m. I also want to point out that the successes were not immediate except in the case of my daughter. I think with the aguna it took a year or two after that. I did it without her knowing and only afterwards told her. It was worth it only if it made her happy and she felt that someone was on her side.August 14, 2011 1:40 am at 1:40 am #797536
miriamr, do I get this correctly, are you saying that for 40 days straight you said Shir Hashirim between 12:44am and 4:23 am? For 40 days straight, you never were asleep at that hour? Wow.August 15, 2011 7:28 am at 7:28 am #797537
True.Many times I have had to set my alarm. But you cant imagine how uplifting it feels to do this. It infuses the rest of the day as well.
