Hand Wringers' Prayer

Here I sit and wring my hands
A stranger lost in foreign lands
Brainwashed and so full of fear
As if Almighty God weren't here

I cringe at every law they pass
So powerless I am! Alas!
Part of me would like to pray
But think of what my friends would say!

I grind my teeth at each offense
All these sinners make me tense
I block the voice from God above
Who says, "Reach out to them in love."

The Ten Commandments I lament
Cannot be scribed in some cement
But while I picket City Hall
I do forget to keep them all

I'm too caught up in church and state
The world has taught me how to hate
It isn't fair that I be brave
When I know I'm already saved.

The world is languishing in night
Christ died so I would be the light
So why do I live in such dread
When I could bring His life instead?

I struggle less as time goes on
Is Christ's liberation gone?
If you should die before I'm free
Apologize to God for me.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I agree that the last two line, especially, are perfect. Great poem and great message!

The last two lines were perfect! You mirror my own feelings on this subject and I like the "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep" feel. It really drives home the fact that a large part of the Christian world is fast asleep.
