“I had a dream that I came to Gan Eden and was given a personal tour by an angel. At first we entered a big room filled with angels. My tour angel brought me to an area in the room and said, “This is the reception area. Here is where all of Am Yisrael’s tefillot arrive before they are presented to Hashem.” I looked around and noticed that many angels were sifting through piles of papers with written requests on them.
We then continued down the corridor and arrived at another room. The tour angel turned to me and said, “This is the delivery room from which all of the pleas are tended to and ‘sent’ down to those who made the requests.” Once again, I took a look around and noticed many angels busy at work.
Walking further down the hallway, we came to yet another room; a tiny quiet room. To my great surprise, there was only one angel who did not appear to be busy at all. My tour angel then turned to me and said, “This is the confirmation room – intended for those requests that were sent down. Here is where we collect the notes proving they were received.”
“How does one go about sending a return receipt for a request that was fulfilled by Hashem?” I asked. “Very easily,” responded the tour angel, “A person simply says thank you to Hashem. Those are the ‘return receipts’ we send back when our requests are answered.”
How sad that this is the least ‘busiest’ room in Shamayim… Something to think about.
