I prayed for food

And I prayed for rent

I prayed for these things

To be heaven sent

I prayed in the morning

And I prayed at night

To help out my brother

And the mentally ill in their plight

I prayed at my job site

I prayed at the dinner table

I prayed that men should not kill

Like Cain and Abel

I prayed against war

And slavery on every shore

I prayed for the victims of criminals

The lepers

The poor

I prayed

And prayed

Until this very same day

When I received a knock on the door

“You have not my money!

“Then you must go away!”
