When going to our friends for prayer,
We need control in what we share.
Our focus should be God: BEWARE
Those confidences poured out there
The gossip mill may feed.
Do not these “morsels” seek with greed:
We need them not to intercede –
The Son and Spirit for us plead,
And God knows what we need.

And when a friend in need may trust
A need for urgent prayer from us,
Discretion here must tame that lust
To know it all, for even “dust”
The gossip mill may feed.
Do not these “morsels” seek with greed:
We need them not to intercede –
The Son and Spirit for us plead,
And God knows what we need.

Don’t say “to pray” you “need to know” –
The wise ones know this isn’t so:
They trust in God, not stuff below.
The “dirt” we urge friends to bestow
The gossip mill may feed.
Do not these “morsels” seek with greed:
We need them not to intercede –
The Son and Spirit for us plead,
And God knows what we need.

for Tanya, who has opened my eyes.

What? Me have a problem here? Well, while I can’t say too much, I will let you know that if you want to pray for me, you are more than welcome to do so. : )
