The Gemara (Baba Kama 92a, See also: Rashi on Beraishis; 21:1) states that "one who solicits mercy for his fellow while he himself is in need of the same thing, [will be answered first]".

This applies to the realm of shidduchim as well.

To pray for another in need of a shidduch, you can e-mail the Kol Hamitpalel Organization at or call (646) 294-4355

These prayers and other useful info can be found in Rabbi Dolinksy's excellent book, Don't Judge a Book by Its Cover.

Note: The Chida's tefillah is written for men and will need to modified for women's tefillos.
