The Selfish Family Prayer

By Melissa Martin

Mr. and Mrs. Selfish prayed together every day after their marriage.

God bless us two

And not you.

God, give us more

Then the person next door.

Mr. and Mrs. Selfish became parents and prayed with their two sons every morning and every evening.

God bless us four

And no more.

The Selfish sons grew up and had their own families.

God, give us favor

But not our neighbor.

Mr. and Mrs. Selfish became grandparents and prayed with their five grandchildren every Sunday while driving to church.

God bless us seven

Just us in heaven.

One Selfish son grew up and became a pastor.

God bless us people

Just our church steeple.

The Selfish grandchildren grew up and had their own families.

God bless us a lot

Only in our spot.

Melissa writes about the human condition.
