A Grandfather's Prayer - Poem by B.J. Ayers

My Dear God, Please hear my prayer,
For answers from thee, is all I seek,
I pray to thee, for all like me,
My Dear God, Please hear my prayer,

This world has changed, I Know not why,
I’ve tried you know, to honor thee,
To live my life, as you have taught
But I have failed, I know not why,

I see a world, punctured with greed,
One that seeks, to turn a head,
Away from truth, away from you,
Only hope I seek, only love I need,

Please bestow, within our heart,
The courage we need, the moral strength
In all who wish and all who care,
To bring together, not tear apart,

The souls of many, who seek not you,
But altars of gold, and words of hate,
A war we fight, we must not loose,
An enemy of many, yet we are so few,

Please tell our leaders, our clergy all,
To open mouths, to lead our fight,
The pulpits are many; the strong are few,
To preach us truth, lest we fall,

Silence is evil, it cannot win,
Only words of truth, a belief in thee,
Strengthen us Lord, I pray to thee,
An antagonist awaits, a foe of sin,

For our children’s lives, we must not fail,
Help us lord, we know you can,
To speak the truth, to win the battle,
Not just for us, but our foe as well.
