In return for my friendship they accuse me, but I am a man of prayer.
In return for my love they act as my accusers; But I am in prayer.
I love them, but they try to destroy me––even as I am praying for them!
I loved them and now they slander me--yes, me!--and treat my prayer like a crime;
For my love they give me back hate; but I have given myself to prayer.
In return for my love they accuse me, even while I make prayer for them.
In return for my love they are my accusers, But I give myself to prayer.
