Poetry Saturday—Can’t Say Me

Perfect PrayerYou cannot pray the Lord’s prayer, and even once say “I.”
You cannot pray the Lord’s prayer, and even once say “my.”
Nor can you pray the Lord’s prayer and not pray for another.
For to ask for “our” daily bread, you include your sister and brother!
All God’s children are included in each and every plea.
From the beginning to the end of it, it does not once say “me.” —Charles Royden
