What I learned about Prayer at Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall

When King Solomon dedicated the temple he prayed, “When a foreigner comes from a far country, for your name’s sake . . . and prays toward this house, hear in heaven your dwelling place and do according to all for which the foreigner calls to you, in order that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you (1 Kings 8:41-43).”

People who know of Solomon’s prayer come from all over come to pray at the Wailing Wall; some tuck their prayers into the wall. God sees them. He hears.
