FWD: FWD: FW: From: +1203xxxxxxx Msg: Fwd: Pls say tehilim for mendel lev ben yehudit a 10 day old baby w/brain bleeding. Send to 10 ppl thnx.

from a 201 phone number, Tuesday, Noevmber 20, 1:20 PM

There was obviously a whole phone number there, before I replaced it was 'x's. The rest of the text is exactly as it appeared on my phone, though.

This all strikes me as kind of fishy. Not that I am inherently opposed to saying prayers for Jewish infants with brain damage. I just don't know how much power those prayers hold when they have been commanded by a much-forwarded chain text. That's my only hesitation.
