Faith & Why we Must Maintain It

Created on 19/11/2003

In Jerusalem, a female journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long, long time; so she went to check it out.

She went to the Wailing Wall and there he was. She watched him pray; and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, she approached him for an interview.

"I'm Rebecca Smith from the BBC. Sir, how long have you been
coming to the wall and praying?"

"For about 60 years."

"60 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?"

"I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews, and the Muslims. I pray for all the hatred to stop and I pray for all our children to grow up in safety and friendship."

"How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?"

"Like I'm talking to a f…ing brick wall!!!"
