A long time ago, there lived a fish in a lake who always thought about the well-being of the others. Once there was a terrible drought that made the lake dry. Due to this many creatures living in the lake lost their lives. The fish lay buried under the mud along with some other creatures. Soon they became the prey of the birds and beasts. Seeing this, the fish thought to do something to save it and the other creatures.
The fish tried hard and came out on the surface. There is performed the solemn Act of Truth. He called upon God and prayed, “O Lord! Pardon our sins. Please send rain and relieve all the creatures from this misery.” He prayed truly from the heart that God accepted the fish’s prey and sent heavy rains to the earth. Hence, the fish and the other creatures were saved.
Moral of the story: ‘God listens to the true praters done from the heart with good intentions.’
