Pastor’s Pondering – May 1, 2019

You have not prayed

If you have not prayed for rain

Knowing it meant death

If the rain refused to come.

 

I have not prayed for peace

If I have not prayed

While the blood still seeped

From the child in my arms.

 

We have not prayed “Thy Kingdom come”

If we have not prayed

While the grave diggers dig,

While the children starve,

While the oppressed are long forgotten,

While mercy

Is led away in chains.

Amen.
