Rubber Stamp Prayer


Rubber Stamp Prayer
By Tom D Blakely

We’re wanting something more Lord
And yet we give You less.
We should be praying more Lord
The church is in a mess.
Our work adorns Your church Lord
So many things we do.
But we are much too busy
To spend our time with You.

Decisions made by voting
Would seem to us as fair.
When we are all agreed then
We come to You in prayer.
But why Lord should You answer
A people who don’t ask?
Or bless what we’ve decided;
Confirm the vote we’ve passed?

Our works all come to nothing
But do we come to You?
No, first we make adjustments
To see if that will do.
How long Lord is Your patience?
Please show us what to do;
For all we do is wrong Lord
When nothing is from You…

May all our work be good Lord
When it is all from You!


The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth
and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.
Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men.”
[Isaiah 29:13]
