How to pray

After Matthew 6:9

Then, we are instructed
to pray, the then a coda,
a summary of what was
spoken before: don’t heap
up empty phrases, don’t believe
that more words mean
a greater likelihood of being
heard; instead, pray in wisdom,
knowing the needs, requests,
supplications, desires are
already known. No surprises
here; he already knows.
