Down By The River To Pray

“HELP ME LORD WE ARE IN OVER OUR HEADS”
Cries in the night from under the beds…
Hide in the shadows so no one can see
There is one who can find you…you will agree!!!
“We had everything that credit could buy”…
“The best of it all, no one could deign”…
So why now is there no more roof over our heads?
Just this sheet of plastic over our bedspread…
It’s hard to provide for my family
When you hear your over qualified…
All that invested money gone,
like financial suicide…
There are so many people here
down by the rivers banks
Who was it that put us here?
Who do we thank?
There are predators here too
just to add to your misery
To steal what you have left
and harm your family…
So here we are…
here we hide
Down under the trees
by the riverside…
and those church people will be here
To give some food and clothing
and lend a ear…
They will pray over us
and then go away
And we won’t see them again
until next Sunday…
Its great that they come down hear by the creek
But what about the other six days in the week?
My kids are sick
and the local doctors won’t help
The care centers have lines around the block
With no more food on the shelve…
They locked the restaurants dumpster
so no one can get in
I wish I still had all the money
that I used to tip them.
We have an old van that needs some work
To put gas in it
I go to the dealerships at night and lurk.
This time of the year
we would be getting back from our vacation
Now Im scrapping cans
so my kids can get a vaccination…
Some of us do leave here…
some do get away
Stan by the big willow
hung himself the other day.
I don’t know where to go…
I don’t know what to do…
If I could just get a little break…
could it be from YOU???
~~Calling ALL Prayer Warriors~~
There are so many homeless people now in the United States that fall between the cracks, family and friends no longer want to help them, or their families…Please donate to The Red Cross either with your time or some food or money, or your church could go and minister to your local people who are in need, YES there are some that take advantage of the system, but those who don’t… still need YOUR help, and those who do need YOUR guidance…Love thy neighbor as thy self…Please lets all pray for them…
