Prayer

Rating: 5.0

I can recall that first prayer I made
I learnt it from my father indeed.
For me its was uttering 3 stanza
In front of the statues plaza.
Eyes closed, hands folded.

I still remember
I did my prayer
To the utmost satisfaction of my father.
There was a kind of fear

With Father and not with God.

i feel the prayer is not what we recite for ten minutes but the real prayer is made for the rest of 23hrs 50 mins..... you have wonderfully expressed the consciousness of the PRAYER as we grow up...very realistic...

Seems we have to learn the hard lessons before we learn. In a way you narrated a life from prayer to prayer. My life was reflected there.

Prayer has become a healer to my soul' I m a buddhist., but I do know many people who do lots of good this world......spread the love jesus's taught us, and keep praying, it will heal your soul..spread the words of love, the kind of love that can touch the hearts of worst animal...10++ regards shan

These verses really describe the value of prayers with such appropriate words as it surely does instill hope in a living creature.
