Why pray? 2019.0116Rev.2019.0121 DRAFT

If prayer were only wishes and did no harm
      that would be enough
If prayer were only crazy love added to all our efforts
      that would be enough
If prayer only honored an age of dreams before reason,
      that would be enough
If prayer were only a statement of intention
      that would be enough
If prayer were only a word to the unconscious
      that would be enough
If prayer were only sharing cares
      that would be enough
If prayer were only practice letting go
      that would be enough
If prayer were only confession of ignorance and impotence
      that would be enough
If prayer were the only possibility remaining
      that would be enough
If prayer were only grief
      that would be enough
If prayer were only gratitude
      that would be enough
