Missing MH370: Prayers in hope of positive outcome

PETALING JAYA, Malaysia - As worry over the fates of the MH370 passengers heightens, Malaysians from all walks of life continue to join their hands in prayer and hope.

Yesterday, the Gurdwara Sahib in Sungai Besi held a prayer session for the missing passengers of MH370, hoping for a positive outcome.

The two-hour session saw scores of members of the Sikh temple singing the Sukhmani Sahib set of hymns.

Temple Committee president Amarjit Singh said the hymns were a special prayer that aided in overcoming obstacles.

"We hope the authorities can find them, the families can stay strong, and that everyone is alive and safe. It's our duty as citizens of Malaysia to aid in whatever way we can," he said.

Committee Treasurer Saran Singh said that the prayer showed the true values of 1Malaysia, with communities showing support and working together in a time of crisis.

"Other gurdwaras have held prayers, as have many mosques and churches."

Temple-goer Jay Singh said the mood in the prayer hall had been sad.

"People are very worried about this plane's passengers. The more prayers the better. We are all touched by the plight of the families."

After the prayers, the temple committee said it hoped to carry on another prayer session.

"We would love to hold another prayer session - God-willing, one of thanksgiving for the safe return of the passengers," said Jay Singh.
