Mixed Prayers And Morning Rain (A Poem)

I am sitting in my study, enjoying the sound of rain on the roof.

We need the rain. It’s been very dry.

But a contrary sound comes to mind, makes me smile.

The prayer of an old preacher at a tent revival who asked,

“Lord, if any spark of revival has been kindled here tonight

please water that spark”!

Do you think that God unmixes our mixed metaphors,

unwinds our mixed motives,

sees the true desires of our hearts,

and sends whatever we most need

for our souls, the rain,

or the sunshine?
