A Reason to Pray
In the course of a day in the workplace or the home
One’s mind absorbs the many physical and mental tasks
While emotions are ever prompted by remarks of others
That push buttons and causes them to wear stress like an ugly mask.
Their mental dialogue with self is a quarrelsome, bitchy rant
Fault-finding and criticizing people’s faults, downgrading their quirks
Feeding garbage to their brain, programming it with drivel
Not stopping to realize that negativism debilitates rather than works.
This is the devil’s work, taking God’s wonderful vessel
And filling it with worthless rubbish, drivel and trash
Turning a lovely personality that is otherwise replete with deep faith
Into a sick cauldron of dissatisfaction collected in an emotional cache.
Such is what can happen to us as we move through busy days
Sometimes too preoccupied to notice what we feel
Letting concerns, worries, disappointments, hurts, and such
Rub away at us like an emotional grinding wheel.
We have left our emotions open to bitter influences all around
Have let negativism creep into our lives and rob us of peace
Until we are a bundle of nerves, wrought with ill temperament
That allows no positive thoughts for blessed release.
It is called programming the mind with external influences
Absorbing the back draft of bad attitudes and personalities in your sphere
Assimilating the negative influences all around you
Until the mind is so negatively charged that joy and happiness disappear.
When we are too unhappy to get out of bed of a morn
And there’s nothing in life that seems to relieve us of our mental load
We humbly turn to God and Jesus, our Saviors, in prayer
Looking for answers and a return to what God has bestowed.
Do we speak ill to God like, “I hate that miserable so and so?”
Or do we turn a humble mind that is open to change and solutions?
We know the miserable negativisms hasn’t worked for us; thus,
Reprogramming our negative thoughts is the key to resolutions.
So why do people pray when they are depressed by a problem?
They pray because their brain is oppressed by negative thinking.
The brain is a human computer operating system for the body,
When it gets out of order it needs reprogramming with positive rethinking.
So that is “A Reason To Pray”
