Just touching the present,
“Done” jumps into the past.
The prayer is requested –
They respond fast.
They take time to act
With words to the Lord,
Forgetting everyday busyness,
They pray with one accord.
When they say, “Done,”
As if yesterday,
I know what they mean –
I can trust them to pray.

When close friends say, “done,” when we ask them to do something, we know that it is very important to them and that it is as good as finished. This is the same with our brothers and sisters in Christ when praying for a certain need. “Done” gives us the assurance that they will really pray and pray quickly.
