Make Your Life a Prayer

Alyssa Pauline Rivera, 23

When I fold my hands and close my eyes,
When I lift my hand and sing to God,
When I help someone in need or pain,
When I stare at the sky and feel God near,
When I read my Bible before I sleep,
When I say kind words and brighten someone’s day,
When I hug or kiss someone I love,
When I walk,
When I eat,
When I smile,
I pray.
My whole life
is a prayer.
