Four-faced Buddha answered my prayer
by Ms. Tan
On October 2012, my hubby told me that he borrowed a big sum of amount from a legal money lender. I was shocked, my mind went blank. It seemed like the end of my world. He told me he owed almost $100,000. I didn't know what to do.
The next day I told him that I couldn’t help him to settle all this debt and asked him to apply for bankruptcy. However I was thinking of my parents if one day they asked me. A bankrupt won’t be able to travel so easily.
Over the next two days, I calculated all my savings, sold all my shares but managed to get only $30,000. I applied for loans at three banks. I was so frustrated and suddenly remembered the four-face Buddha and I kept praying for help.
One night I woke up in the middle of night and suddenly remembered one of my friends, but I am not sure whether he could help us. We knew each other only a year through his girl friend who was a friend of mine.
I thought I must try, so I contacted them to meet for dinner. They agreed. I told my friends about our difficulties and they asked me how much I needed.
I told them $50,000 and they agreed. I was so happy and promised to pay them monthly. Hopefully I can settle this within a year and a half. My hubby was surprised too. I told him that the four-face Buddha helped us.
We went to Bangkok on 8 November to pray and give thanks on 9 Nov the anniversary of the four-faced Buddha. We also hired 12 dancers to dance.
The moral of the story is, if you pray sincerely, faithfully, your prayer will be answered. I promise to visit the four-faced Buddha in Bangkok at least twice a year. Nowadays, when I feel uncomfortable, I will pray to him.
Thank you four-faced Buddha for answering to my prayer.
