6-26-14 To My Muslim Friends (a Sonnet)


You pray five times a day toward Kaaba

And say to God the things you learned in school.

If you could only know Him as Abba

You’d do and say things diff’rent from the rules.

God doesn’t want you scared of Him at all,

In fact His Love just wants to bring you Home.

You pray for help and hope He hears your call;

Now Jesus is the Way, no need to roam.

He died for you, my friend, no need to fear

The wrath of God: His blood has cleansed your sin.

Believe His message, let it draw you near

And feel His Spirit fill you from within.

God still loves to hear your ev’ry prayer;

With Jesus now the Kaaba’s everywhere.


Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth:

for I am God, and there is none else.

Isaiah 45:22 KJV
