Great Lakes Prayer Ten

There is a whisper from the past,
that we must overcome an old curse.
That is why I pray
and invoke the blood of Christ.

Was it the prayer
that death would not overpower us
that lead me to pray for my wife
when she was dying?

It is what fear
will do to a man;
what I was willing to ask of God
when she was ill.

I will never understand why he let her die,
why when I prayed, he did not heal her.
I stayed with her body for two days
before I let her go.
