Let Us Pray

When we were little children we... Were taught to kneel and
pray... If only for protection at... The closing of the day...
We were not hesitant at all... In telling God our needs... Or
asking Him to pardon us... For our mischievous deeds... But
as the years went by and we... Began to grow in size... We
let our thoughts and lips grow lax... In keeping up those ties
... Or maybe we grew bashful when... We could not be alone
... And felt that prayer was something we... Had gradually
outgrown... And yet it is so obvious... There is no shame in
prayer... And we should pray each night and day... To show
Him that we care.
