Pray Against the Status Quo · 9 February 2015

Praying Hands by Albrecht Dürer
This work is in the public domain.

I really really do not know
How to pray against the status quo.
Should I ask about what fashion
God would shape my every passion?
Should I ask for confirmation
On what should be my true vocation?
Or should I ask God for a vision
On what should be my worldly mission?
I suppose the point of all of these
Is that with my life God I would please
That everything I say and do
Would glorify, O God, just You.
And so Dear God I pray that I
Might help the world to glorify
You alone with every thought and deed
And in others plant Your Holy seed,
Your Word of love and transformation,
That you give so freely to every nation.
O God, I pray that I could start
To every day just do my part.
For one thing that I know for certain
There will surely be a final curtain.
Then You will ask what You already know
What we prayed and did against the status quo.
