Which of my prayers is the important prayer?

I think it’s Prayer 413.*

Please take all things in my heart, mind and soul.
I wish they are empty
so that you can put anything you want into them.

Why important?

Because it’s the prayer to be one with you.

Most of my prayers are similar to Prayer 413,
because to be one with you is important to me.

More than 60 000 deaths in Viet Nam each year linked to air pollution

WHO –  New data from the World Health Organization (WHO) find that more than 60 000 deaths from heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and pneumonia in Viet Nam in 2016 were linked to air pollution.
