Walking to prayer

After Acts 6:16-40

Walking to prayer we see
the girl who sees us
the girl possessed
shouts who we are
servants these men are
servants of the Most High

we move away but the pattern
repeats each day until I tire
of the words and rebuke
the spirit with in

an act of frustration
a spirit rebuked
the girl now worthless
in the marketplace of deception
the girl now priceless
in the marketplace of the Spirit
