Where do you go when you pray?

And to what cause does it apply?

Does it satisfy your inner loving soul?

As well as those sweet moments when you cry


Who are the recipients?

That so justly deserve your sacred wishes of being well

And do they know of your kindness

Even though you may never tell


What of the many cultures or races

That you request that they find eternal peace?

And do you ever wonder in your heart

How many of these human beings that you actually reach


How does it impact your day?

When you’ve chosen to be kind to others

A sincere affirmation that you truly care

For your many sisters and brothers


It truly cost you nothing

Except a few hours of your time

Just quietly speaking to yourself with the knowledge

That you made somebody else’s existence divine


Think if each person on our planet

Honestly concentrated on World Peace

And consider the number of likeminded folks

That we could affirm to reach


What if for just one special Holy day

We just stopped and focused on our faith

It makes me ponder what a year could birth

And what a world-wide difference it would make
