English Short Story and English Moral Story ”Powerful Prayers” Complete Story for Class 9, Class 10, Class 12 and other classes.

Powerful Prayers

Kim and Ray were very close companions. They were neighbours, studied together, completed their graduation and worked together. They planned to enjoy a vacation and took a sea voyage to explore different places. Unfortunately, their ship wrecked in the middle of the ocean. While most of the travellers were unable to secure their life, only Kim and Ray, who were able to swim, could save their life by reaching an isolated island.

They were very happy and thanked god for saving them. However, the island looked like a deserted island with hardly any trees, and poor atmosphere that no living organism could survive. They have no option other than praying to god to save their lives.

Kim and Ray sincerely prayed to god. Nothing happened even after a couple of days. They decided to split their ways into opposite ends of the island and challenged themselves about whose prayer would be powerful.

Both divided their region in the deserted island and offered their prayers to god.

Kim prayed god that he would need food to survive. Surprisingly, he got a pile of food, fruits and vegetables on the sea shore.

After two days, he requested for a beautiful girl as his wife, as he was feeling very lonely in the island. In a few hours, a ship wrecked again in the island near Kim’s region, where only a beautiful girl was alive! He married the girl.

After a few days, he requested for more food and shelter. All prayers of Kim were addressed by God.

It was almost a month after the ship wreck and Kim decided to move back to his hometown. He prayed god to send him a ship to take him home. Surprisingly, a ship came and took Kim and his wife.

Just before the ship was about to move, a voice appeared!

‘Are you going alone, leaving your companion of life here?’

Kim was surprised, ‘May I know who is this and whom you are referring to? I have my wife with me!’

The voice said, ‘I’m the one whom you offered your prayers!, whom you requested to save your life, whom you requested food and shelter and of course, a wife!’

Kim happily stood on his knees and said, ‘Thank you god!’

Then god said, ‘But why do you leave your companion here?’

Kim was confused again!

Then god added, ‘Don’t get so excited my son. Your prayers are not answered and fulfilled by me. I was only fulfilling Ray’s prayers. He prayed only one thing to me! He said ‘Please fulfil all the prayers of Kim and it is my only prayer to you.’

Kim was in tears and rushed to the other side of the island. He realized that he did not even think about his best friend Ray and was happily enjoying life with all pleasures.

He could not find Ray there and asked god ‘Where he was?’

God replied, ‘I took him with me, the man with the golden heart should be with me! But I will fulfil all your prayers as I promised him to do so!’

Kim was completely broken and realized that his friend’s prayers were more powerful.
