can one daven for their zivug to be rich?
i was shmoozing to a friend who is about to date.. and she asked me if she can daven for that. she finds it important. but she also doesnt know if thats bashert for her, or if she is being picky. i didnt know what to say, so im turning to the coffee room.January 24, 2011 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #731573YW Moderator-80Member
sure one can
probably not a good idea though
best to daven that Hashem should send you the zivug who is best for youJanuary 24, 2011 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #731574yossi z.Member
Not exactly the best place to turn to for advice rather than just hashing things out but in my opinion if she feels that by having a rich zivug it would be a positive addition in the marriage then I don’t see any reason not to (simply put if it is for good reasons then why not?)January 24, 2011 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #731575blinkyParticipant

mod 80 – Do you mean people should not daven for a certain cause if needed, rather no need to daven cause hashem knows whats best for you?January 24, 2011 10:09 pm at 10:09 pm #731578☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Why daven for it? Just don’t go out with anyone who’s not rich!

ONE of the things I davened for as a girl was that myself and my future husband should never be missing anything monetarily. We should be able to live B’harchava.
I think I wouldn’t ask for. RICH boy. Rather ask for your Bashert, and then try to Daven that Hashem sends you all you need.(Or if you’re so determined- Daven that you should become rich.)January 24, 2011 11:31 pm at 11:31 pm #731584cofeefanMember
just daven for the one that is right. if he was rich and then he lost all his money would she leave him?! money never lasts and it can never buy happiness though some think it can!January 25, 2011 12:11 am at 12:11 am #731585real-briskerMember

Since your Bashert is already chosen for you, maybe you should pray that YOU should be wealthy and that you AND your zivug will be happy, healthy and successful in the future.January 25, 2011 7:36 am at 7:36 am #731588twiggyMember
