I have no idea if this “Tefilla” has any merit; I wrote it, maybe it is worth saying:
Master of the World, please see the suffering of those having difficulties finding a Shidduch
Desperately trying to find their way in a dismal maze of unending questions, robbing them of happiness
Only to have them shattered when everything sadly slipped away as sand through desperate fingertips
Feelings of unworthiness haunt their peace of mind
Each time they go to Shul with heavy hearts, hoping that this time their desperate yearning
Will pour out as water from their soul in front of Your Throne of Mercy
And You will consider their tears as a perfect Kurban brought on Your Mizbeach
Ribbono Shel Olam, how many times can they go on, feeling that their prayers are so lacking and inconsequential
Look at how much purity they carry themselves throughout all their youthful years
Even while living in a world where everything sacred is cast aside
That You will cherish and thus, change Your decree for them to find their proper Shidduch
To transmit the fear of Heaven and love of Torah and Mitzvos to the next generation
Remember them in the Zechus of our Avos and Imahos HaKedoshim
Blessed and filled with Kedushah and Simcha from Your loving Hashgochoh
Nothing is to hard for You to do; You can bring their Yeshuah in a moment
So we are in Your hands – the people we meet and their feelings for us are all in Your control
May it be Your will that our few words should cause the fate of these singles to be brought before You in a favorable light,
Please speedily unite these suffering people with their intended Shidduch
Our dear Father please collect the pain in their hearts; think of them sitting at a Seder Table, surrounded by family or friends, yet so alone
Wistfully thinking what a different Yom Tov it would be it would be if only they would be complemented by their intended Zivug
How many Shabbosos come and go with only a faint hope in the heart that one day the Gut Shabbos greeting could be so warmly said to their intended
Please bring them under the Chupah with joy next to their beloved partner in life very soon
My frustration, anxiety and sadness flee, replaced with the Simcha of excitedly looking forward to an imminent Chasunah and days beyondOctober 10, 2011 8:47 pm at 8:47 pm #828389bein_hasdorimParticipant

SilentOne, your post was beautiful, as were your other prayers in the threads ayc so thoughtfully linked. G-d should answer your prayers for you and for all of us!
I find it interesting that people who may seem to be more “quiet” or “silent” are at times more likely to write and say things impacting, beautiful, and inspiring than those who are always speaking their minds.October 11, 2011 4:25 am at 4:25 am #828397Emunas ItechaMember
