If Prayer Changes Anything

'Prayer changes everything'
Or so they tell me
But if that is case why are we at war
Do you really think mothers don't pray
For their sons to come home

If prayer changes everything
Then we wouldn't be alone
Or having to struggle through life
Families wouldn't be starving
Deppressed ones taking their lives

If prayer really worked
We'd live in a utopia
Where everything would work
We would all get along
Race theologies would fall

If prayer really solved anything
Children wouldn't be molested
They wouldn't be raped or killed
I wouldn't have to cry myself to sleep
From the pain of being lonely
If prayer changed anything

I've felt these feelings too, my friend. If you ever need to talk, I am here to listen.
Well written and I totally understand where your coming from..it does make you wonder some times in life..why?
