Rev Don Holt shared a prayer – God can’t do everything by Jack Reimer.
We would like to share the powerful message with you.
We should not ask God in our prayers to do something which is within our power, so as to save us from the chore of doing it.
We cannot pray to you God, to end war;
For we know that you have made the world in a way
That we must find the path to peace
Within ourselves and with our neighbor.
We cannot merely pray to you our God, to end starvation
For you have already given us the resources
With which to feed the whole world
If we would only use them wisely.
We cannot merely pray to you, God
To root out prejudice,
For you have already given us eyes
With which to see the good in all people
If we would only use them rightly.
We cannot merely pray to you O God, to end despair
For you have given us the power
To clear away slums and to give hope
If only we would use it rightly
We cannot merely pray to you, O God, to end disease,
For you have given us great minds with which
To search out cures for healing,
If we would only use them constructively.
Therefore we pray to you , O God,
For strength…determination…and the will
To do…instead of simply to pray.
To become instead of merely to wish.
