Busting A Prayer

In these dark days, I find solace in the words of renowned poet Stanley Kirk Burrell.

On a mission start to doubt.here we go
(That’s word,we pray)
Kicking back,read these words we need to know
(That’s word,we pray)
Living high,living good,living long
(That’s word,we pray)
Take a minute,bust a prayer
And you’re good to go

Hanif Kureishi on the ‘fundamentalists’ of Whitechapel and Shepherd’s Bush:

What did disturb me was this. These men believed they had access to the Truth, as stated in the Qur’an. There could be no doubt – or even much dispute about moral, social and political problems – because God had the answers. Therefore, for them, to argue with the Truth was like trying to disagree with the facts of geometry. For them the source of all virtue and vice was the pleasure and displeasure of Allah.

And via Eamonn McCann in today’s Tele: The Presidential Prayer Team.

    You’ve got to pray, just to make it today.

    Oh, Stanley, where are you now?
