It was never my prayer to have seen worthless lives on the streets, where the home full of joys has become misinterpreted by prophets & prophetesses. As the cloud befriends the day and my heart’s full of grace, I have come to say ‘Dear lord, here I am, cleanse me from all unrighteousness and lead me to a brighter life.’ Dear Lord, I am seated in a room of metaphor, and my voice has become clucked, wishing you be my favorite inspiration on this occasion. Dear Lord, I may not be your favorite servant, but I do promise to live by your commandments. If I’m to die, let me die while serving you. Many a times, I have been asked by opposite believers ‘Who is this Jesus?’ A question to be answered. But I pray to you, who is Him.
