Those who never pray

They […] wouldn’t think of praying to the Lord (Psalm 14:2-4; NLT).

Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

Lord God,
Please bless all those
Who never pray –

Those who don’t remember you,
Or think of you;

Those who don’t believe in you,
Or long for you;

Those who don’t trust in you,
Or seek you out –

Lord God,
Please bless all those
Who never pray.
