You Are Holding Us (Prayer of new Haitian converts)
All my life
I'd been nothing but a weed;
but the other day You pulled me up
and planted me in Your garden,
and I became a flower.
one doesn't gather mangoes
from an avocado tree
and one can't find maize
on a banana tree.
We behave according to what we are.
Help us to be what we should be
in order to produce the kind of fruit
that You need.
