THE WALL OF PRAYER MICROCALLIGRAPHY

Microcalligraphy is the Ancient Hebraic art-form that uses the Biblical text as the brushstrokes of the painting

The Western Wall has been for generations a sacred place of Prayer. We read the following in I Kings 8

And You shall listen to the supplication of Your servant and of Your people Israel that they will pray toward this place; and You shall hear in heaven, Your abode, and You shall hear and forgive.( I Kings 8:30)

Furthermore He continues to declare that this is true of the people of Israel and of the nations and foreigners that turn towards G-d ;

You shall hear in heaven Your dwelling place, and do according to all that the foreigner calls You for, that all peoples of the earth may know Your Name, to fear You, as (do) Your people Israel, and that they may know that Your Name is called upon this house that I have built.( ibid 43)

The words “pray toward this place ( El Hamakom Hazeh)” .Why not in the place?

That will not be always possible. The Western Wall is the closest “TOWARDS THIS PLACE” we have at this time. Therefore it has become an appointed and anointed place of prayer.The Western Wall is the closest we can all get to the Sanctified location of the Holy of Holies and still be able to freely pray.

Clearly G-d hears our prayers anywhere.Yet there are appointed and anointed places

This Microcalligraphy Art-piece is formed by using the text of the following chapters of Psalms: Psalms 1-50, Psalm 122, & Psalm 150.

Psalm 122 was chosen as it speaks of the return of the exiles unto the rebuilt Jerusalem, a prophecy being revealed today.

Psalm 150 was chosen to frame the picture as it is the final chapter in the Book; "Let everything that has breath praise the L-rd."
