Praying Before the Unbelieving

Praying before the unbelieving
When the unbelieving are paying attention.
When they are watching for the result.
Watching to judge your intention.
When your prayers are heard in silence,
Or silently being heard.
When they cling to every expression.
When they think on every word.
When they watch for your reaction
To the answer being, “No.”
When they believe “Yes” is a secret
They desperately want to know.
These are the times my God creates
To bring our thoughts to Him.
He is warning, confirming,
And reaching out to them.
Will they listen? Will they believe?
Will they seek and receive?
I MUST pray to the Holy Spirit,
Whom I do not want to grieve.
