“Thoughts & Prayers” (a poem)

“‘Coincidence’ is not an appropriate word
to describe the workings of an omniscient God.”
-Neal A. Maxwell

With prayer, we cannot quantify
Exact amount of ROI
And still, the heavens hear us cry
(There’s ample proof to testify)

Some say it’s just mythology
A fake epistemology
Some figment of psychology
And yet, from all that I have seen

My “thoughts and prayers” that some dismiss
(A silly, unimportant wish)
Do so much to improve, uplift
A world that’s dangerously adrift

No believer worth their weight
Says “choose one! Either God or fate”
The evil actions men may take
Don’t prove that the divine is fake

Can’t understand it perfectly
But one thing that is sure to me
So much of all the good we see’s
Directly linked to deity
🙂
