Welcome to the Davening Exchange website. The Gemara (Bava Kama 92A) instructs us 'If one has a problem and prays for another who has the identical problem, he who has prayed will be answered first.'

The metaphysics of how it works that a person increases the influence of personal prayers is not so important as our recognition that it really works, and we wish to help people find appropriate pairings to maximize the success that the wishes of their heart that are good become granted by Hashem.

For those that wish to learn more about how it works or wish to educate us and other users more about how it works we encourage as much dialog about this subject as can be. We will happily post appropriate Torah content on our web server. Rabbi Paysach J. Krohn has given us permission to publish a copy of one his stories related to this.

Similarly, this web site is dedicated to the principles of open source software and will happily discuss details of how our database works and details of how our match-making algorithm works.

We also wish to offer registered users with guidance in formulating appropriate prayers for expressing their needs, or for sources in Tanach or other areas that can help them to find solutions to their problems. We hope to ever increase the amount of Torah and other wisdom within each category of problem area we are told about.

May your prayers be answered speedily and completely. AMEN!
