Nullifying the Decree

"There is no chance for recovery", the doctor stated when he completed reading the examinations, "the illness spread even to the lungs" he continued explaining. The broken parents mumbled a few words of thanks and went out of his office. They sat on a nearby bench and flowing tears erupted. Their crying reach their little boy's ears who was laying sick in the hospital bed.

Nati came to sit next to his parents and with astonishment, gazed at his parents. He never saw them cry, and with such intesity. "Don't cry" he begged, "I promise from now on I'll be a good boy".[+/-] show/hide text

The flowing tears increased.

The father gently stroked his sick son's cheek and said "Nati, you are always a good boy".

"So why are you crying?", he asked innocently.

"Nati", said his mother, "We need to daven to HaShem to heal you, you are a little sick".

"No problem", Nati immediately responded, "the Rebbi in our class said that when the Aron HaKodesh is open, one can ask whatever he wants. I will pray and you will see that it will pass".

This story was told by Nati's father. He told me that his son stood in front of the Aron HaKodesh and asked out loud "Father in Heaven, I want to be healthy, so Ima and Aba won't need to cry because of me". The whole congregation wiped their tears.

Yesterday, the doctors re-examined Nati and they got the results today. The same doctor who told them a month ago that Nati has "no chance" to survive the illness, was excitedly yelling "There is GOD in Shamayim and He loves Nati. The illness is retreating, THERE IS A CHANCE, we can begin treatment".

True story, told by the father. Translated from http://hydepark.hevre.co.il/topic.asp?topic_id=2053170

Chazal says that the power of tefilla is so great, that even those prayers which are not answered produce positive results.
A proper tefilla has such incredible power that even the Heavenly courts cannot stand up against it!




והיה השם למלך על כל הארץ, ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד - ושמו אחד ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds אין עוד מלבדו
