Not Speaking Prayers

When God listens
when our savior hears
does God hear us speaking prayers
does he hear true faith
believing in his goodness
that he listens that he responses
that he truly answers all of our prayers
Do we offer true worship
faith in the prayers we raise
are we persistent like the widow
but do we see God as the judge
unfairly denying her pleas
or do we comprehend
God answers prayers
not in our immediate
our selfishness
but that God answers all
in God’s holy time
