Prayers #100words

And its a WOW post once again. Thank you BlogAdda!

The little girl sat before her favourite deity-The naughty cowherd who sported a peacock feather and played haunting notes on his flute. How He defied Lord Indra and lifted mount Govardhan was her favourite tale.

“Ask Him with all your heart and He’ll surely give” her mother would tell often.

“Kanha, Amma says if it doesn’t rain this year too, we’d surely die. Is it true? But, aren’t you are more powerful than the rain God. Won’t you ask him to save us this time?”

Her tearful innocent eyes and pure devotion melted His heart.

And, it rained that night.
