Prayer of the wise on behalf of others


"Rabbi Pinchas ben Chama taught: One who has an ill person in his household should go to a wise person and ask that he pray for him, as it is written (Proverbs 16), 'The rage of the King is with the angels of death, but a wise man can wipe it away.'"

(Talmud, Bava Batra 116a)

Have a great day,
