One Prayer

One Prayer

If one straw,
Fragile and light,
Can change the weight
Of a camel's heavy burden.

Might one prayer,
Fragile and light,
Change the weight 
 of a broken world?

Your one prayer,
Fragile and light,
Might be the one prayer,
God is waiting to hear.

Your one prayer,
So fragile and light,
Could be the keystone,
 of the World to Come.

Blessed is the one who prays.
Blessed is the One who hears prayer.
