Thank you is so feeble

 

When you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words
(Matthew 6:7; NKJV).

 

“Thank you”
Is so feeble, Lord, 
But what else 
Can I add?

“Sorry”
Is inadequate –
But what else 
Can I say?    

“Love you”
Is repetitive – 
But what else  
Can I claim?

“Help me”
Is so childlike, Lord –
But what else
Can I pray?
