Why Do You Pray?

There’s a country song that asks the question, Why do I pray?  Great thought.  Why do YOU pray?  The song talks about the mess the world is in and that’s why he prays. Things like…

 

∙            My neighbor lost his house because he can’t find a job…

∙            Can’t say the pledge allegiance and can’t speak of God in schools…

∙ Someone posts something on the Internet, a text, and a life gets ruined…

∙ We have forgotten how to make a house a home…

∙ The sick losing their lives because there is no cure…

 

Just a few things the song mentions.  We can make our own list.  What happens that makes you angry?   Child molestation… senseless killings… robberies… drugs… bigotry…   Ok, just watch the evening news and you got your list!

 

The song goes on to say…

∙ I believe in better days…

∙ I wanna make a difference…

∙ Heaven knows I am only human

∙ I’m only one person, but I can feel it working…

∙ That’s why I pray!!!!!!!

 

And, those are good reasons to pray!  Prayer makes a difference.  Prayer can make a better world.  Prayer changes the world.
