A Prayer Away

A Prayer Away

Over and over you hear the news
about people in distress;

if it isn't fights in neighborhoods
it is financial stress.

Abductions and child abuse
and terrifying events,
bloodshed in our streets
as violence grows intense.

Bullying and misguided kids,
men cheating to survive;
the guilty go unpunished
and injustice seems to thrive.

Most people are struggling
while wicked men succeed,
motivated by their lusts
and insatiable greed.

Is there any hope left?
have all men gone insane?
the solution is a prayer away,
to repent and let God reign!

He must rule over our nation
countries near and far,
and in the lives of men
transforming who they are.

The Light of the world
came to give men sight;
only Christ the Lord
can resolve our hopeless plight!
