We Pray


We Pray for everyone to have abundant
Things they need,
We selfishly hold all our blessings
And not others feed.

We think it's our only duty and call,
Just to sit and pray for them all.

We have all the supplies of the material
To give to the naked souls sake,
While in our own riches we live and love
And we take.

There are many who are lonely
But we are too busy to care,
So we do our duty, we pass by and
Say a quick prayer.

We see crime and evil , little children
Die we ask why?
We do our duty and we pray, but
Never listen to their cry.

We say a prayer and wonder why
A child lay dead,
A word of love would have helped, not
Just a prayer instead.

We love our neighbor , but do we know ,
Their deepest need,
Don't want to interfere, we just pray
And feel we have done our deed.

We could change our world if we got
Off our ,Knees after we pray,
And remember Jesus got off His to
Show us how to live each day,

Just a prayer is not a fulfillment
of His command.
But it is to get up and move, lend
the world a helping hand.

Yes, we can change our world with prayerful actions. Good message! Bless you for the reminder.

Prayer is good...but we also need to take some actions. The bible says that if someone is in need, simply saying a prayer is not enough...we should do something about it.

Quite an interesting and unique view on the word fulfillment. God is surely speaking through your piece...

Will we hear?

Thank you for your thought-provoking poem. Prayer is an important way to communicate with God, and I felt in this poem as if it was given a back seat. There are just some things that we cannot do ourselves, but give them over to God to do instead - through prayer.

Great motivating, convicting message - we are created unto good works.

This poem did not have the smoothest rhythm and flow, but it Sure Did Hit The Nail on the Head when it comes to getting Up OFF our knees and putting our faith to work! It told it "like it is" - very thought provoking. I liked it! Nicely done.

Me too! This message is a wake-up call that would also make a wonderful premise for a story.I liked it. :0)
