My Ode To Prayers

By Nina S. Jones



Prayer is a blessing



that can’t be used up



you can pray when you’re fasting



You can pray when you sup



You can pray when you’re happy



You can pray when you’re sad



You can pray when your child’s been



particularly bad



You can pray when you’re standing



You can pray on your knees



You can pray when you’re driving



You can pray when you sneeze (gazunheit!)



You can pray for repentance



You can pray for relief



You can pray in the mountains



You can pray on the beach



You can ask for assistance



You can start off your fast



You can hope for the future



or let go of the past



You can ponder the scriptures



You can find out your mission



If you’ve nothing to say



you can shut up and listen!



It’s not that important



the what or the when



its that Heavenly Father



becomes your best friend



How blessed is our life



how happy our soul



when we make constant prayer



a true lifelong goal





The End
