When we ask Rightly by Raymond A. Foss

Maybe we need to reread
the laments of the people
who spoke of remembering
when God was faithful
when the creator was
present with us
when the master
answered their prayer

Maybe instead,
we should look inward
God is always with us
a presence on the way
Maybe our prayers weren’t worthy
of our master’s answer
maybe when we ask rightly
we would see him clearly
and his message for us

Only seeking good
pouring out his blessing
God’s love sufficient
for all of our needs
Submitting like Jesus
to the servant call
Trusting in our savior
He is our all in all
