Be careful what you pray for

When we pray

come, Lord Jesus

Do we mean to say

come, you malnourished stranger

come, you unwanted migrant

come, you ragged child

come, you crying crack baby

come, you dirty panhandler

come, you dying alcoholic

come, you addicted whore

come, you imprisoned gangbanger

Come, and join us.

Share our table.

Be our guest.
