"KEEP ME IN YOUR PRAYERS" - Actual Meaning

KEEP ME IN YOUR PRAYERS - Actual Meaning
(This content was shared by my Aunt Mrs.Jyoti R.Shah who I thank a lot. This is the unabridged version of what she shared and no content has been changed)

Since we always say "Keep me in your prayers" to each other, I thought of sharing a small story about the actual meaning of these 5 words. Just go on and read it and I am sure you will start thinking the way I am after reading this story.

A voyaging ship was wrecked during a storm at sea and only two of the men on it were able to swim to a small, desert like island. The two survivors, not knowing what else to do, agree that they had no other recourse but to pray to God

However, to find out whose prayer was more powerful, they agreed to divide the territory between them and stay on opposite sides of the island.

The first thing they prayed for was food. The next morning, the first man saw a fruit-bearing tree on his side of the land, and he was able to eat its fruit. The other man's parcel of land remained barren.

After a week, the first man was lonely and he decided to pray for a wife. The next day, there was a woman who swam to his side of the land. On the other side of the island, there was nothing.

Soon the first man prayed for a house, clothes and more food. The next day, like magic, all of these were given to him. However, the second man still had nothing.

Finally, the first man prayed for a ship, so that he and his wife could leave the island. In the morning, he found a ship docked at his side of the island.

The first man boarded the ship with his wife and decided to leave the second man on the island. He considered the other man unworthy to receive God's blessings, since none of his prayers had been answered.

As the ship was about to leave, the first man heard a voice from heaven booming,"Why are you leaving your companion on the island?"

"My blessings are mine alone, since I was the one who prayed for them,"the first man answered."His prayers were all unanswered and so he does not deserve anything."

"You are mistaken!"the voice rebuked him". He had only one prayer, which I answered. If not for that, you would not have received any of my blessings."

"Tell me,"the first man asked the voice,"what did he pray for that I should owe him anything?"

"He prayed that all your prayers be answered."

For all we know, our blessings are not the fruits of our prayers alone, but those of another praying for us.

This is too good not to share...

My prayer for you today is that all your prayers are answered. Be blessed.

"What you do for others is more important than what you do for yourself".

A must read Incident that will open your eyes!
 
An engineer in a car manufacturing company designs a world class car.
The owner is impressed with the outcome and praised him a lot.
While trying to bring out the car from the manufacturing area to the office they realized that the car is few inches taller than the entrance.
The engineer felt bad that he didn't noticed this one before creating the car.
The owner was amazed on how to take it outside of the manufacturing area.
The painter said that they can bring out the car and there will be few scratches on top of the car that he will do the tinkering later on.
The engineer said that they can break the entrance and after taking the car out, they can cement it.
The owner was not convinced with any ideas and felt like it is a bad sign to break or scratch.

The watchman was watching all these drama and slowly approached the owner.
He wanted to give an idea if they have no problem.
They thought what this guy would tell them that the experts could not give.

Watchman said that The car is only few inches taller than the entrance so if they release the AIR in the Tyre, the height of the car will be adjusted and can be easily taken out.

Everyone clapped!!

LESSON :
Don't encounter problems from the expert point of view.
There is always a LAYMAN point that will give the best solution in a given point of time...
••••••• •••••••• •••••••••
Life issues are also same.

Many a time a friend's entrance door fall short by few inches, we feel taller!!

Release some air (ego) and adjust the height.
Think  simple...
Do simple...
& Live simple.
God Bless!
