Nostalgic Realisation

    There are lots and lots of things which make us nostalgic ... some things, words, color, music, images have the power to take us back to our memories. Here am referring to my school days to be more particular the prayer time of my school days. It was pure fun. Even though it is prayer time we find our own way to play pranks on classmates. When we think about that time its painful missing a lot of lovely moments. And yesterday when I rewind my memories, I realized the prayer we skipped or the fun filled prayer times had wonderful meanings. We had two different prayer one in morning and other in the evening before we left our classes
So, the morning prayer goes like this,

                               “Dear God, Saw God help me
                                To do the things
                                I should to be, to others,
                                Kind and good in all I do at work
                                Or play, to grow, more loving
                                Every day”

And it will followed a quote it was like a slogan “G-o-o-d m-o-r-n--i-n-gg miss”  Most of the time without any goodness or love to that teacher

We never realized this prayer had such  a wonderful meaning.. It was a prayer we sang from our K.G sections. I don’t  know whether our teacher told us about the meaning but we were ignorant about that. We sang with a disgust  if our first hour is one of the hated subjects and with a much happy mood if it is our favorite hour but we were ignorant about the precious prayer we by hearted… Our evening prayer goes on like this:

                “Heavenly father hear my prayer
                Day and Night I am in thy care
                Look upon me from above
                Keep me safe all through the night
                Bless my parents with whom I stay
                Make me kinder day by day”

And just like the morning prayer we had another type of slogan ie, “Good evening miss, Thank you miss” and its not in the laziest form but with more enthusiasm because its the last act we do in our school

It is such a wonderful prayer “ make me kinder day by day”. Its an evening prayer so we pray to god to keep us safe all through the night… such a great prayer but we fail to realize it. We sang the evening in a hurry burry because after prayer we can leave school. Fortunately or unfortunately we, the whole “Lobelians” had the same “enthusiasm” for these prayer and we mis spelt the phrase “more loving” as “molavings” to maintain the tune. 

                       But still we love our “LOBELIA” for giving us both lovable and painful moments. I don’t know who the author of the prayer…the author is unknown to all the Lobelians still - Master, we hats off to you for giving us such  a sweet, small and meaningful prayer and at the same time a great sorry for not giving the proper respect it need… Once again Thanks a lot….
