A Parable to Teach

Christ needing to remind them
to remind each one of us
always to pray
to lift our hopes, our concerns
our struggles and joys
to God, the creator
the ruler of heaven and earth

God will listen, God will answer
maybe not as we would expect
but always in his mercy
wanting the best
only good for us
pouring out his grace
down upon us

Needing to pray
ever and always
without ceasing
persistent in our calling
our petitions to our maker
trusting ever
in the goodness of God
