11 of 12 given words:
prayer morning bread desire skywards 
ancestral flawed many tracked birth
skillet (a long-handled saucepan.)

3WW given words
radiance rhythm
rasp (to utter with a grating sound)              

A silent prayer for the morning bread
Desire shored up skywards for directions
Pandering from ancestral times to date
Flawed perhaps but they sought redemption

Many got side-tracked blaming Providence
Skillet overflowed but devoid of goodness
Misfortune of birth recoiled sans radiance
Rasp whinings with no rhythm but emptiness
