If one does this G-d will give blessing in the sixth year that it will produce enough for 3 years. One for the sixth year, one for the seventh and one for the first year of the new Shmittah cycle. It says:
“if you follow my ordinances … You will dwell securely in your land . And I will give you fruit to your satiety. And If you will say “what shall we eat in the seventh year – for we will not plant and not harvest?” I [Hash-m] will command My blessing that in the Sixth Year – it will provide [enough] produce for three years.” (Vayikra / Leviticus 25:18-21)
*Question:* – It seems that a person that has a doubt as to relying on G-d by letting his land rest on the seventh year (because he asked “What shall we eat…”) G-d will give this blessing of “produce for three years”. Shouldn’t the blessing be given to people who have faith / Emunah in G-d that he will provide?
*Answer:* There are two kinds of blessing – in quantity or in quality. A person who has doubts – G-d will give the blessing of quantity – so they can actually see with their eyes the blessing. The quantity of three years of produce.
To those that have faith – G-d will give the blessing of quality. Their fruit will be so nutritious that one fruit will provide enough nutrition as 3 fruits.”
When asking blessing from Hash-m – ask for quantity and quality.
Money that will be used for spiritual growth and helping Klal Yisrael & the world – not for Taxes or Medical expenses.
A soulmate that will have good midot / character traits, desire for growth, values and hashkafa / Torah outlook that will make me & Hash-m happy.
Children that will follow Torah and be righteous…
A path in life that will help me to find true spirituality, growth & truth & that will be pleasing to you Hash-m / G-d …
To get accepted into a school that will help me to achieve my potential in life …
Be specific and detailed – but not too detailed to give G-d “leeway” to give you good. Don’t pray to marry a particular person. G-d knows best if a particular person is good for you to marry. Pray to Marry a person who will have the qualities that you desire – if it is good for you.
May our good prayers be answered* – Amen.
*Hash-m is the Name of G-d to whom we direct our prayers.
