My Prayer
Of all the prayers which come to You from every tongue and land,
Mine must shine, 'though they be few; I make sure that they're grand.
I pray for peace upon the earth and "You're kingdom come."
The masterpieces that I birth makes others sound humdrum.
I speak directly with precision. I have a commanding air.
My prayer needs no revision; It's always perfectly clear.

But one day as I lay in bed, composing my next poem,
I thought of the other prayers which arise to Your home.
Crude and simple they must be; lacking proper grammer.
Voices crying out in agony as they moan and they stammer.
They beg for the "God of Mercy" to move on their behalf;
To save them from the jaws of death; to free from satan's grasp.
Children, without mothers, sold into slavery,
Simply because they'd bear no other 'cept the cross of Calvary.
Daddies put in prison because they love the Lord,
Tortured moms who are missing, or killed by gun and sword,
Others sick and dying with no hope of a cure,
These prayers pled with crying must move Your heart for sure.

Does my desire to pray out loud, to appear so debonair,
To stand out in the crowd hinder the effectiveness of my prayer?

The communication through prayer is unlike any other;
Contacting the Great Creator on behalf of another,
Bearing another's burdens with the most genuine care,
Lifting names to the Father knowing that He's there.

I'm so ashamed, so ashamed, I've felt 'till now, only my pain.
So little I've lost, so much I've gained.
Yet I continue to ask for blessings again and again and again...

Of all the prayers which come to You from every tongue and land...
Help me to make mine less attrative to me, more useful to others
And more meaningful to God.
