If I prayed...

If I prayed, I might say…
Please watch over the people who are dear to me, people who are cold and hungry, who suffer with life.
If I prayed, I might ask that the world turn toward peace in everyone’s heart more quickly.
This all conjures up questions as to whom am I praying? Why do I think there would be a personal interest in my small concerns, and do I think there would be an immediate response just for me?
Yet I do pray, even in the face of those questions, and I do what I can on my end, to help all of that. Whether it’s a list of people who have asked me to pray for them, or those under my care, I remember each one, each morning, before my day begins.
