GIVE US WORDS

We asked him how we should pray -
We wanted "proper" words to use.
So the Word gave us useful words.

He taught us how to talk to God -
But we wanted words of power!
So the Son showed us the Door.

We won't find the door,
If we do not go in search.
We will not receive it,
If we do not ask for it.
The Door will not open,
If we do not knock on it.

If the rich and spoiled give,
Nice gifts to their children,
Wouldn't our loving Parent,
Give life in the Spirit,
To those who search;
To all those who ask;
To those who knock?


Tiwago (from Luke 11)
