One Word Prayers?

I heard last week a phrase I have heard quite often, but it never struck me so humorously as this time. A man opened a religious meeting with the line: "Let's begin with a word of prayer." At this point, of course, we all bowed our heads and began to pray.

But just what is a "word of prayer"? It is a prayer, I surmised, that is one word long. What would that look like?





The less-traditional "Whassup?"**

What would your one-word prayer be?


*1 Cor. 16:22. Okay. Technically, that's two words in Aramaic (as well as in Greek) "marana" & "tha."
**As in, "Whassup, my Creatah & Saviah?"

Alleluia! Oh, wait, it is Lent.


Although, in my case it often is "Help!"
