Need for Prayer

Jesus walked down

from the mountain

& a crowd had gathered

waiting for his return—

here a man pleaded

for healing of his epileptic son

(the disciples who had stayed

could not heal him)

Jesus thought them all faithless

& called the demon out of the boy

who convulsed violently

& was finally rid of that spirit

 

 

The disciples questioned Jesus

why they had failed

& Jesus told them

that prayer was required

Need for Prayer

To God

I can’t come out today

I don’t know what to say

I would if I could

all the other prayers

seem so much better

I know you hear trillions of prayers

I am just one of çazillions 

help me to find a connection

I am lost in my procrastination 

Is it better to write you a letter
