We Must Not Pray

We must not pray
   unless our feet
   are willing to walk.
We must not pray
   unless our legs 
   are willing to take a stand.
We must not pray
   unless our hands 
   are willing to do the work.
We must not pray
   unless our hearts 
   are willing to be broken.
We must not pray
   unless our minds 
   are willing to be open.
We must not pray
   unless our souls 
   are willing to forgive.
We must not pray
   unless our selves 
   are willing to be transformed.
