Prayer is hard

P
Prayer, petition,
Appealing, entreating
Asking, requesting
Theoretically it should be easy
The religious never speak
Of how hard it is to pray
First you need faith
I’m told a mustard seed size
Will do
Yet I?
I haven’t had faith
That size
I’m not sure
What I should ask
What should my entreaty be?
Should it be for me or you?
I can’t quite
Make up my mind
Then I’m told, my desire must
Be in line with God or the gods
Yet I’ve found the God/s obtuse
On the nature of desire
It’s a fickle area
More societal than divine
God is supposed to know
Just what I need
This is great for God
But not so good for me
For I am still perplexed
Though I’m clear on what I’d like
Prayer is hard
Too much like hard work
I think I’ll rest in silence
For a while
And in the silence
I might hear a prayer
