28 Prayers to Election Day: The Flattery of the Meek

on

Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth
Matthew 5:5

Most Loving Savior,

Blessed are the meek,
they don’t need flattery,
they will inherit the earth

Blessed are the humble,
they deserve kindness,
for they will inherit the earth

Talk sweetly to the timid,
    they are blessed,
      to inherit the earth

Blessed are the submissive,
they know the Lord,
and will inherit the earth

Blessed is a quiet spirit,
not the vulgar
will inherit the earth

Blessed are the gentle,
caring for their neighbor,
they will inherit the earth

Blessed are the modest,
no need to boast,
they will inherit the earth

The sweet flattery of the meek,
    soft voice,
      blessed to inherit the earth

Amen
