Promises Made in Prayer

Did you make a wedding vow to be good and faithful?

Seize the day and start right now; neither be forgetful. 


When, within some words of pray’r, you have made a promise,

Don’t say, “when my ship comes in.” Shut up or be honest.


Say just what you mean, be clear. Keep the words you’ve spoken.

God can see and also hear; pledges that are broken.
