    Live the Way You Pray


    I knelt to pray when day was done,
    And prayed: "O Lord, bless everyone;
    Lift from each saddened heart the pain,
    And let the sick be well again."


    And then I woke another day
    And carelessly went on my way,
    The whole day long I did not try
    To wipe a tear from any eye.
    I did not try to share the load
    Of any brother on the road.
    I did not even go to see
    The sick man just next door to me.


    Yet once again when day was done
    I prayed, "O Lord, bless everyone."

    But as I prayed, into my ear
    There came a voice that whispered clear,
    "Pause, my child, before you pray.
    Whom have you tried to bless today?
    God's sweetest blessing always go
    By hands that serve him here below."


    And then I hid my face and cried,
    "Forgive me, God, I have not tried,
    But let me live another day
    And I will live the way I pray."

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
