 Blind Man at the western wall

A blind man was led to the Western Wall in Jerusalem.  He felt the stones with his fingertips, applied a gentle kiss to the sacred stones, and began speaking to God.  Although he spoke very rapidly, I could catch some of the words. He was relating to God various things that had happened to him, and some of his requests.

At one point he stopped abruptly.  "Oh, I'm sorry," he said. "I already told You that yesterday."

The sincerity of the man's prayer was electrifying.  He had no doubt whatever that what he had said yesterday had been heard.
