what to pray

I want to know
of all the thoughts I pray to thee,
no matter if they play
upon my tongue,
become articulate
and are voiced aloud,
or stay within my heart
as wordless groans and whisperings
oh which, if any. of them are
the ones
you’ll want to hear
and which are those
you might forbid
to ever touch your ear.

Please tell me, God.

I want your promised rest,
but do not know just what to say
to have it now bestowed on me.

Perhaps if I address you as
my Pater, Lord, and act as if you are
I will be doing all I really need to do
to then be looked upon by you
as worthy of your grace.
