A prayer for help
"God, We Need Your Help" by jaybird1
Is God, God of our universe,
if so I have to confess;
As things have gone from bad to worse,
he's forgotten our address.

We're up to neck in troubles here,
knee deep with fears and fright.
A God of love must surely hear,
our call that would end this blight.

With wars and storms and climate change
and virus around this earth,
we'd made a mess, could you arrange
to give hope and some rebirth.

It is our fault, we lost our way,
on the things we should have done.
Please, help us to a brighter day.
Thank you God and thank your son.



Author Notes
This may be our last remaining hope, here on this fractured earth.-jaybird
