Satan's Prayer. - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

Once Satan built a Synagogue.
He wanted to pray
with lifted hands and noble words.
With beads on his lips he prayed.
But there was no inner melody in him.
And the angels could not hear him.

A poor little child
from the poorest village
lifted its eyes and sighed.
Its inner melody
sounded and resounded
in the mighty heavens all over.

    i like this and the contrast.. it tells a everything with elaborating.. touching
    refreshing and worth meditating, especially in this world we have today...

    perhaps that is when he left
    the ministry and got a job
    in the banking industry!

    Yes! Children are angelic poetry

    contrast between satan's prayer and the prayer of the little poor and innocent child. innocence of the heart and prayer. a good theme indeed. (Report) Reply
