What to pray for

We cannot merely pray to You, O God to end war; for we know that You have made the world in a way that each of us must find their own path to peacewithin themselves and their neighbor.

We cannot merely pray to You, O God to end starvation; for you have given us the resources with which to feed the entire world if we would only use them wisely.

We cannot merely pray to You, O God to root out prejudice, for You have already given us eyes with which to see the good in all peopleif we would only use them rightly.

We cannot merely pray to You, O God, to end despair, for You have already given us the power to clear away slums and give hope if we would only use our power justly.

We cannot merely pray to You, O God, to end disease, for you have given us great minds with which to search for cures and healing, if we would only use them constructively.

Therefore we pray to You instead, O God, for strength, determination, and willpower,to do,instead of just to pray; to become, instead of merely to wish.
