I Pray #worship

I pray for the world to heal
as we all thrive and struggle
some call for Allah
others bow down
in genuflect
for Jesus Christ
Buddha for the rest
is a symbol of
and that’s why
they run unto him
for reverence and devotion

I pray for the world to heal
as we all thrive and struggle
some pray five times
each day
others simply light
a candle
as they bow down
and pray
the rest meditate
to practice
inner reconditioning

I pray for the world to heal
as we all thrive and struggle
it doesn’t really matter
how we worship
if we call for Allah
Jesus Christ or Buddha
or whether we bow down
in prayer or
chant in meditation

We pray, with the hope
that we heal as one
one race
one humanity
one world

  1. I absolutely ADORE this poem mich. I love how you have united all the different religions into one huge prayer. There is not really so much difference, except in the different names given to things. I join you in your prayer. Xx

  3. True words of Reality, Mich and yes we all must pray to God to take care of his children and not man-made religions that teach you to believe that each and everyone’s God is superior. Let us awake and understand what God wants us to say and be One Humanity that has love and kindness.

  5. A wonderful poem! It saddens me that you felt the need for the disclaimer at the end. A sign of the times when so many are poised and ready to attack at any perceived slight. The truth is that there are more similarities than differences – we are one race and one world. Wish everyone would start acting like it!

    1. Thank you for putting an emphasis on that Val. Some people are very senstive about certain things and i am just happy to have ones like you around who simply understands.
      I came from a country where people are divided politically and religiously and many have fallen victims over this. The current pandemic has even become more political and religious than a health issue.
      Though i agree with you that we have so many similarities than differences; but back home, its different.

      Thank you Val 😚😇😇keep safe always
