MY LORD, TEACH ME HOW TO PRAY By Adepoju Isaiah (Ijaya)

Written by Editor

My humble and faithful Lord; teach me HOW to pray.
To go down in humility and rise to tender my petition.
To loom the looters; boot the booters
To walk without fear of our saviours
To not be executed for my humbly words
And not singled out for my brave actions

Oh God; please teach me how to
tender supplications…
For the souls of the damned activists
And the activism in the madmen; strengthened
Workers walking to work with hawkers of poverty.
Torn shoes and wears patched-patched with thread.
God please teach me how to petition
On their behalf.

My Lord: please make me a handy – golden
gavel…
To sentence ravenous into exile on death
And judge poverty into life imprisonment
without clemency…
To enforce laws with soldiers of impunity
Raiding out impunity in every community
And acquit unity of all charges
Into the mind of the slaves of freedom
for all eternity…
OH MY LORD; I BEG HUMBLY,
PLEASE TEACH ME HOW TO PRAY…!
