Three Prayers for Maren Coates

Maren’s mom prayed for her daughter to live,
even as Jeffrey’s father prayed for his son
to do the same;
Jeffrey’s heart that saved Maren.
Maren prayed for Father McNally to choose her,
Tim prayed for Maren to choose him,
even as Father McNally prayed for Richard and Maren
to choose each other.
Maren prayed to die
even as Father McNally prayed for her to live;
but only one could have their wish.
