Talking, asking, requesting, desiring,
The requests fly into the ATM,
Sometimes written, other times recited in groups,
The prayers go out,
Each with an RSVP.
Who am I cheating at this bank of unlimited grace?
I can’t trick God so what is going on here?
If I ask reward is that really communication?
Is that a prayer?
Or me encircling my ego?
The latter methinks.
Real prayer asks for nothing.
