When Faith Is Not Enough - Poem by Bernard Franklin

When our prayers are not answered,

How much loss can we take

How much grief can we bear

How much pain can we cope with

Is our blind faith in Christ corroborated,
Until we are judged by a higher power.

Ultimately to fail,
Through ecclesiastical injustice.

A belief found wanting

A need not met

A hope betrayed

Dear God,

Please forgive us when we falter.
