I sometimes have cause to wonder
Why, the devastation and plunder?
Has our world changed so much
Where is Jesus when we need His touch?

My heart breaks at the sins against man
I am sure this is not God's ultimate plan.
Death, poverty, laziness, and cruelty
Seem to exist without any penalty.

So I offer a fervent prayer
Please, Father God it is so unfair.
That the poorest of the poor
And the weakest must endure.

The hostility and the evil that has invaded
The souls of man and left him so degraded.
Not all have become so enamored of sinful ways.

Perhaps even though some say,
'These may be the end-time days'
They will finally find the higher power.
For it is not yet the final hour.

Jesus has already paid the supreme price
On that the Father was concise.
For I am sure that he will ultimately come
To save us, embrace us, and lead us home.

If you are still in doubt read God's Holy word.
It is clear, true, a promise, nothing absurd.
We have one final weapon for our use
Prayer to the Almighty if you choose.

For an army of angels is close at hand
To conquer the world's illness on demand.
And to wipe away all the gloom & doom
So as to let Christian love can come in full bloom.

Prayer in a group or all alone, it makes no difference.
Either simple, complex, plain or with eloquence.
We are God's children one an all
Ready to answer His final call.

Matthew 5:16
Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
