Beckett: Poetry – No. 985, Let Us Pray

O brothers,
let us pray
to be good leaders
in the House of God.

O sisters,
let us pray
to grow as mothers
and conceive God’s children.

O fathers,
let us pray
to discipline our children
in the Word of the Lord.

O mothers,
let us pray
for our children’s integrity
and path with Christ.

O sinners,
let us pray
for our forgiveness
through Christ our Lord.
