A Prayer

Show mercy
To the undeserved...


Amritbir Kaur said...

Wonderful! The word 'undeserved' makes the prayer all the more meaningful and powerful.

God has mercy.
He has reasons for everything and only he knows.
Thank you for your warm visit and words.
Take care.

Krishnam ekam sharanam.

We surrender to His will because He is Master; we trust Him to help us because He is Best Friend.

Hi Mani, Many More Happy Returns Of The Day. May God showers you with happiness, good health and love.

Hi Mani:)

A lovely poem in just a few words.

This can mean any two of the following:

Many parts of India are facing drought situation and rain is very badly needed. Rain should show mercy by a good rainfall.

In places like Kerala, there is heavy rainfall and life has become quite difficult. Rain should show mercy by stopping here.

Both people, those who don't get rain and those who get too much rain, are undeserved and rain should show mercy otherwise life will become unbearable.

I was amazed at your short but very powerful prayer. I hope rain god will listen to our prayers.

Have a nice Sunday Mani:)

Sana....there is strong relation between human actions, thoughts and raining. That's a reason for the monsoon shift, which we are sadly witnessing...Here in chennai for over a week, clouds are playing hide and seek! I truly wish for a heavy rain :-)

Thank you for your lovely comment.

Have a nice time!

manivannan said...


Very true Venus...God has mercy, and that's why it rains, even after all our despicable acts :-)

And thanks a lot for ur warm birthday wishes. I feel so blessed!

Have a great time.

On the contrary, in Chennai, it's all few drops of rain everyday, which only raises the temperature... But I'm really happy for Mumbai :)

Thanks a lot for your comments rush!
