An Answered Prayer

A mystic voice floats through the air, calm and gentle…

“My child, your prayer was received by me most graciously. Please accept this token of my appreciation… I wish you great tidings in the future.”

A ball of light floated down… and:

A large bag of very rare berries appeared!

Strangely enough, Herald herself was awake while both Jarvis and Haos were sleeping. She herself had not expected any sort of company, though upon hearing the voice descend from the heavens themselves. The slothful Dusknoir showed little surprise or gratitude for that matter when said bag floated down in front of her. The light itself dissipating rather quickly, the ghost slowly picked up the bag, placing it upon her lap. “Hmph… showoff… At least the noise has ended.” Herald muttered quietly, staring at the sky with a tired expression as she slowly opened the bag. The assortment of berries would take the breath away from even the most jaded berry critic. Herald merely shrugged, pulling one out before nonchalantly plopping it into her mouth. “I just hope they deal with that much bigger problem soon… It would be a pain to move to a different universe.”

God (A Child’s Prayer)

God bless me please I’ve good intentions
but must confess I’m not feeling all that well
it frightens me terribly that some would say
those things will only pave the road to hell

God I do so try to believe in peace and love 
and I’ve oft heard You have a master plan
yet I’ve searched far and I can’t find them
would you please stay close to me til I can

God the wise ones speak about abundance
I’m sorry but it seems my eyes see only lack
will You please love me until I find my way
and I promise when I’m better I’ll give it back

…благодари Господа! У Него всё на своем месте и в своё время. И всё это называется жизнь в Боге…

Архимандрит Иоанн (Крестьянкин)

You seem to have a great music taste. Would you like to give us your favourite lyrics?

That’s always the biggest compliment for me :’) 
and of course, I don’t mind, so here you go:


“So when you feel like shit, you’ve gotta keep on pushing.”
-Bullet for my Valentine /Curses/


“Live your life ‘til the end. I will never change and I’ll never regret. Always follow your heart. If you never try then you’ll never go far.”
-Glamour of the Kill /The Summoning/


“Don’t suffer in your silence. Know you’re never alone.”
- Bullet for my Valentine /You Want a Battle (Here’s a War)/


“But who would give a fuck about a kid with a dream, because stories aren’t told about the one’s unseen.”
- Hollywood Undead /We Are/


“That angelic child, a perfect prayer in heart. ‘Let no bad happen.’ ”
-Being as an Ocean /…And Their Consequence/


“I’m falling back into the “how-could-this-have-happened-to-me’s” like some melancholy play, that no one paid to see.”
-Being as an Ocean /Mediocre Shakespeare/


“Don’t wait for rivers to flood, just to keep you afloat. Don’t wait for mountains to fall, just to get across.”
- Vanna /Bienvenue/


“Let me paint this clear: life is short, my dear.”
-Nothing More /Jenny/


“I’ll be your light in the darkness.”
-Asking Alexandria /I Won’t Give In/


And it’s worth the pain not to hide away every memory, one by one.”

“You’re a car crash and I can’t look away.”

-Three Days Grace /Car Crash/


“Now and again we try to just stay alive.”

-Volbeat /For Evigt/


“The kingdom of the fathers and the heroes, where are you? I’m talking to you everynight more than I should do. What awaits and when will be the day when I can wear the cape? I’m lying on the ground and always staring into the air. Go blindly. Completely.”

-Volbeat /Cape Of Our Hero/


“Where you listening to the evening? Have you ever felt the dawn? When everything around you told stories from the world, dear mother nature speaks louder than you know. All alone in the dark, move the curtains for once and see the light life has brought, or goodbye forever. Feel the arms that embrace; no more being afraid. Feel the sun on your face, or goodbye forever.”
-Volbeat /Goodbye Forever/


“We all have different destinies in life.”
-Volbeat /Mary Jane Kelly/


“I have to show, I’m strong and I’ll survive.”
-Bullet for my Valentine /Broken/





Ouuuuhkay, that’s enough I guess. I hope you have fun with this and maybe found some songs you like! :D

An Answered Prayer

A mystic voice floats through the air, calm and gentle…

“My child, your prayer was received by me most graciously. Please accept this token of my appreciation… I am sure you will enjoy it.”

A ball of light floated down… and:

A beautiful crystal that calms you down appeared, its scent wafting around the room! There is a tag attached:

‘Flavour Text: Light Incense - Calms down a rampaging Pokemon; Increases the power of Status moves by double.’

<Miriam now holds the Light Incense!>

Dear God,

I come to you as humbly as I know how. I confess my sins, those known and unknown. Lord you know I am not perfect and I fall short everyday of my life but I want to take time out to say thank you for your mercy. Thank you for my health, my family, my friends, the roof over my head, food on my table, and everything I have. Lord God you have been so good to me. I just have to thank you and I truly love you.

CAMBODIA, Phnom Penh. 30/10/2014: Street child guarding shoes during prayer day at the Preah Ang Dong riverside pagoda.

One way of looking back at 17 years in Cambodia, before leaving for Brussels at the end of August: the Preah Ang Dorngkeu shrine on the riverfront at the Royal Palace is a place I kept returning to on prayer days over the years.
