What to ask for on the day of your wedding

In one town, there was a custom for each couple to go to the rabbi before their wedding in order to get his blessing. Each time, after the blessing, the rabbi would explain to the couple that the day of the wedding is very important and that their prayers on this specific day are accepted.

Once, the Rabbi asked one bride what she will pray for. She answered that her life until now had been easy and that she would like to ask G-d for everything to continue easily. The rabbi then answered: “In life, nothing comes by easily and it is not right to waste this holy day [of the wedding] to ask for something that cannot be. You need to ask G-d to give you the strength to overcome all the obstacles in your life and succeed in having a home based on the values of Torah and the commandments of G-d”.

The knowledge of what lies ahead of us in our lives always helps. It may not be the day of our wedding but we need to know that life is not easy and that we need strengths to help us to rise above it.    

Someone who has an easy life doesn’t truly live. Because in real life, there will always be something that will stop us and that we need to overcome.

May G-d give us the strength to live our lives truly and rightly, until the coming of Mashiach now.

Shabbat Shalom and Chanukah Sameach!
