In distress


In distress, I pray
I pray in distress
O my Master, before You
I know You are here before me.

The content of my prayer
Is not known to me, O Omniscient
I know only You are here before me
And taking all steps for the welfare of all.

I pray, only pray, my dear
Without any thought without any word
You are my words your are my thoughts
You know better than me what would be better.

    Real Misraji, we know not the contents of prayer when we sincerely approach His presence. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
