Our Duty Beyond Prayer!

Share with your friends on Facebook

We cannot merely pray to you, O God, to end war.
For we know that you have made the world in a way
That we must find our own path to peace
Within ourselves and with our neighbor.

We cannot merely pray to you, O God, to end starvation.
For you have given us the resources
With which to feed the entire world
If we would only use them wisely.

We cannot merely pray to you, O God, to root out prejudice,
For you have already given us eyes
With which to see the good in ALL people
If we would only use them rightly.

We cannot merely pray to you, O God, to end despair,
For you have already given us the power
To clear away slums and to give hope
If we would only use our power justly.

We cannot merely pray to you, O God, to end disease,
For you have already given us great minds with which
To search out cures and healing,
If we would only use them constructively.

Therefore we pray to You instead, O God,
For strength, determination, and willpower,
To do, instead of just to pray,     
To become, instead of merely to wish.  Amen!

Please spend some time reflecting, absorbing and praying over these words.

DON’T ASK GOD TO GUIDE YOUR FOOTSTEPS IF YOU’RE NOT WILLING TO MOVE YOUR FEET!!
