I have spent a number of years writing lyrics, and poems, and thought I would share a recent writing of mine with you. I just finished reading your book, and was very moved. God bless

"The Homeless Prayer"

Ricky B. Meinhart 2011



As you think of feeding the birds in the sky

Lord, look down on me for I'm in need

I'm hungry, cold and in a situation

All your servants pass me by

And can't even look me in the eye



Small kindnesses are big in heaven

Remember them when they appear

This sign I hold now is my voice

So pass me now or make a choice.



Tell me are they not commanded

To help the poor and open handed

All your servants pass me by

And can't even look me in the eye.



I'm using bigger letters now

And hope my spellings right

In hopes my sign is in their sights

My clothes are worn

I wear them tattered

My hollow eyes my soul is shattered



Small kindnesses are big in heaven

Remember them when they appear

This sign I hold now is my voice

So pass me now or make a choice.



Tell me are they not commanded

To help the poor and open handed

All your servants pass me by

And can't even look me in the eye.



What brought me to this circumstance?

A series of misfortunes where there is no more advance

Don't judge me now for it is written

The Lord will judge those who have given

I close this prayer with just one thought

Thank you in advance, what your servants brought.
