Every one is blessed by GOD , somehwere or the other way, and it's for us to realise and feel it. It's totally one's belief to know how much we are blessed to receive HIS blessings.
So many things happen as a blessing in disguise to us.
We all pray and say the prayers religiously and whole heartedly.A prayer can go anywhere, that's the reason people who are far away always keep prying for the welfare of their kith and kin in distress.
We can always say, "our prayers are with you", prayers can do wonders and it's a miracle at times. The miracle sometimes missing a thing but getting something unexpected.
Absence only makes the heart grows fonder so also prayers said for those who are away from us, no wonder nowadays people get together for a community prayers for a cause.
So, keep praying not only for your sake but for the others and for the world.
