Desperation, desperation, desperation
Drives many people to their knees
Making deals with the Lord of Creation:
“I’ll do this… help me please.”
Inspiration, inspiration, inspiration
The answer that comes from ‘above’
Can be ideas and opportunities for fresh direction
And a friendly motivational shove.
Perspiration, perspiration, perspiration
We all have a part to play
In being part of the answer to our supplication
Partners with God along the way.
Nick Lear 2012
This poem was inspired by the thought that while God invites us to pray in all circumstances, he wants us to grow and learn: which won’t happen if he does everything for us so he invites us to be part of the answer.
