May Day Prayer - short, then long

I We celebrate Labor (LABOUR) This year, with more PRAYER II I prayed briefly for my country, the people Singing the "Pater Noster" - FATHER IN HEAVEN: In the wee hours, as I awoke, thankful As born-again believers ought to feel, say ... As we arise, for He kept us alive, for today III Talking to Father, Son, and Spirit - Perhaps a delusion, akin to your own Worshiping Capitalism, as a Market Force More Holy than socialism, glorifying Free Enterprise (Only gains are free for taking; When markets fall, tax bails them out, saving Face of "Free Enterprise," to the tune of trillions) So my DELUSION gives me peace, no harm to you: Thank you Jesus for Salvation, favor, and forgiveness And RESTORING what man lost; waters & Forests Especially the image inside us: we have so prostituted For a plate of soup, like Esau, who we saw trade heritage For a mess of pottage; not caviar or LEAN, but lentils - Abba-Father in Heaven, HOLY is thy Name, hallowed be thy Name Give us this day, our daily bread & COMMUNION I want to see His Face, the face of favor and Grace The Face of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Master, too Holy is thy Name, O hallowed be thy Name Help me forgive OTherS, as I've been forgiven Abba-Father in Heaven - and help us through this virus Bless my country and folk, bless the global village We repent of our sins; Help us Holy Spirit Teach us the right way; You are the Teacher Given Rauch-HaKodesh, the Spirit of God, Spirit of Truth Who recalls for us all that Jesus ever said Thy Kingdom Come, Thy will be done ... Father-Son-and Spirit We worship your Holy Name, in the Name of Jesus Halleluljah and amen, Hosanna and Amen.
