Pray

When people
Ask me
To pray
For them
This
Is What
I Do

I wish for them
Peace
In their souls

I ask myself what
I can do
To comfort

I hope
Beyond hope
That those
Who are near
Won't ignore
Opportunities
To rise up
And help

I don't ask God
To make it ok
To fix it

I don't ask God
To care
For His child
Since He already does
And it seems insulting
To ask
 
I ask instead
For God
To help humans
Listen when He asks them
To care for
Other humans
  
I don't think
I'll ever
Pray
Like I used to

Pray
With my voice

Pray
For resolution
Rather than comfort

Pray
With even the hope
That amazing things
Will happen

Prayer
To me now
Is more just
Hi God
I see this happening too

And can anything
Be done
By You
By me
By anyone
To make it
A little
Better
