Yet We Pray

We have the resources and the channels
to feed every person on the planet,
yet we pray for an end to starvation.

We have the supplies and the means to
house and clothe each citizen on earth,
yet we pray for an end to poverty.

We have the ability to be friends and
companions to the elderly and the infirm,
yet we pray for an end to their loneliness.

We have the qualified competence
to mentor and guide the young,
yet we pray for the lost and misguided among them.

We have within us, the capacity to love one another,
yet we pray for an end to hatred.

We have the power to transform the world,
yet we pray for change.

We have been given so much,
yet we use so little of it.

Let us pray for the things we need,
not for that, which we already have.

Let our legacy be one of action, a generation
of doers, who prayed deeply and in earnest for
the strength, the courage, the determination and
the conviction, to use our God-given gifts - justly.
