Just Pray

In the darkness
In the quiet
In the loneliness they felt
Women weeping
Men in anguish
Their world had been upset

Yesterday
They saw Him die
Jesus was their closest friend
For three years
Day after day
They had heard Him preach the word

They saw Him heal the sick
Raise the dead
Open blind eyes
Make the deaf to hear
The dumb to speak
Cleanse the leper
Stop the issue of blood
Turn water into wine
They saw Him do all these things
Now He was gone
They were alone

I can imagine
They took time to pray
Time to reflect on all He had done
He told them he would rise form the dead
Bit they did not believe that was possible
All they could do was pray
Ask God what’s next
What do they do now?

Isn’t that what we should ask
What now Lord?
What is your next task
Your next mission
Who should I witness to
What should I say
Give me the words
And the boldness
These are things we should pray about
Not to be blessed
But to be a blessing
In times of uncertainty
As the disciples certainly had this day
Pray
Then pray some more
Then pray even more
Pray and God will answer
Pray and God will speak
Pray and God will show you His way
Just pray!
