Poem: Meditation on the Lord’s Prayer

By: Yevgeniya Przhebelskaya 


Jesus’s disciples asked: teach us to pray.
Today, crying or cursing, we seek
“Our Father …”

Our careers are thorny,
we reap backstabs, gossip and sin.
Our daily bread is hormone filled protein.

Our enemies
who are not yet repentant
we have tried
and failed to forgive.

The temptations of Internet,
Easy credit, and fun-centered life
are quick to deceive.

Father, grant us wisdom and love
to live in Your name
on Earth and in Heaven.
