Who am I to say how life ought to go?
To dare exalt myself, as though
I was some omniscient deity
Knowing full well how things should be.
To bend my knees in such self-exaltation
Is the source of my prayer life's frustration.
It’s not life’s inability to earn my praying nod,
Nor others inciting me to incessantly reach in prayer for the rod,
But the simple fact I often pray as though I am God!
