When we pray, we call upon an almighty God,
Call on Him: Yahweh and Jesus,
With reverence and awe,
From our brave hearts.
When we pray, we call upon empowered prophets,
Call to them: Rasul Allah and Buddha,
With knowledge and hope,
From our centers.
Popes and Patriarchs,
Mothers and Marias.
Goddesses and gods:
When we pray, we call upon tenant powers,
Call on her: Nature and Earth,
With respect and bounty,
From our bodies.
In church or square,
In home or
Alphas to Omegas.
When we pray, we call upon ideas,
Call to them: Science and Alien,
With wonder and logic,
From our deep thoughts.
When we pray, we call upon our selves,
In the humility of our smallness,
In the faith of the vastest unknown,
In the sublimity of our surroundings,
In concert with our neighbors,
To their gods,
To their prophets,
To their powers,
To their ideas,
And their neighbors.
When we pray, we call upon prayers,
Call upon: eaches’ and others’,
With bended knees, prostrate,
From our every’s things.
