Mustard Seed

Lord we have the faith of a mustard seed.
Not a lot more but we have it.

So why can’t we…
Why can’t we pray our parents back?
Why can’t you raise them from the dead?
Why can’t they come back,
And buy a flat and get jobs,
Cook for us and look after us?
Why can’t they come back and do our hair?

Instead we pray.
We pray for help, we pry for protection.
We pray for love and we pray for family.

Lord you say you answer prayer.
Why can’t we have our parents back?
