You Daven for Me and I’ll Daven for You. They will send you a booklet of which Tehillim to say daily with a name to daven for. Thats basically it. You will daven for him/her and s/he will daven for you. May all our Tefillos be answered l’tovah!
(You will also get a copy of the song “The Letter” a.k.a. “Daven for Me” from Dovid Gabay)October 19, 2010 2:41 am at 2:41 am #1150179HashemLovesMeMember
this sounds like a really nice website! can someone post a link?October 19, 2010 2:46 am at 2:46 am #1150180popa_bar_abbaParticipant
I would never let somebody daven for me if their purpose was so they would be answered before me. How could you violate somebody worse than taking advantage of their needs like this?October 19, 2010 2:57 am at 2:57 am #1150181October 19, 2010 3:15 am at 3:15 am #1150182kapustaParticipant
mischiefmaker, I personally know of several stories that worked through this. Say it every day and IY”H you will see positive results.
p_b_a, I’m almost sure there was an old thread that discussed this. The idea is basically that you are emotionally involved in your situation = you want to do something about it = sign up. Since you know what it feels like to deal with this certain thing, you will do whatever Davening you can for someone else who is in the same situation.October 19, 2010 3:24 am at 3:24 am #1150183
popa bar abba it has the endorsement of many rabbanim-check it out.
One question-how do I know what to daven for the other person. Example: if by other I wrote a new car am I davening for someone who wants a car?October 19, 2010 3:56 am at 3:56 am #1150184HashemLovesMeMember
popa, i highly doubt that that is the purpose of this website. i don’t think it’s taking advantage. my friend and i did this sort of thing in sem. we went to a kever a few times and we davened there for each other. you just have to be honest with why you are doing it. (after all if a pasuk in chazal suggests such a concept, it must be a good thing to do!)
thanx ben torah!October 19, 2010 4:24 am at 4:24 am #1150185WIYMember
When Davening the Kavanah should be sincerely for the other person, its wrong if the whole intention of Davening for the other is for yourself to be answered. The point is you daven for someone else too and therefore you will also get answered quickly.
But if each one is focusing on themselves it probably won’t be very effective because the whole zchus is that because you are Davening for another you “deserve” to be answered “first” but if you are only doing it to be answered first you cancelled out the zchus. Or so it seems.October 19, 2010 5:07 am at 5:07 am #1150186bein_hasdorimParticipant
“One question-how do I know what to daven for the other person. Example: if by other I wrote a new car am I davening for someone who wants a car?”
As I understand it there are categories,
they give you someone in same category.

hi- check out item#2 on
i think this is how Daven For Someone Else Works. i don’t think engaging in this because you want to be helped is a disqualifying event. – thanks and sholomOctober 19, 2010 2:19 pm at 2:19 pm #1150188whatrutalkingabtMember

bein hasdorim-thanx but lets say I checked off other and there was a space to write what the “other” is so if I wrote car that means the other person did too?October 20, 2010 3:59 pm at 3:59 pm #1150190squeakParticipant

So does Kupat Hair and Vaad Harabbanim. It doesn’t mean you get what you’re promised. But what you are doing is still a nice thing.
I never heard the Gabay song, but I could see why fans of his music would want to make a fan website.October 21, 2010 12:03 am at 12:03 am #1150191
squeak-i never said that you for sure get what you want, I’m just saying that its hashkafically correct.May 3, 2016 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm #1150192☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Does anybody know where the old thread Kapusta refers to is?
