  1. I had a dream where there was this old lady, she was laid on bed and seems like she can’t walk. She looked like my grandmother. She asked me to knee down by her bed and she was praying for me, saying I have suffered enough, that my situation must change and I was crying as she was praying for me! Then I woke up!
