Hear my prayer
(I always do.)
I am a sinner
(You all are)
And I don't speak with you as often as I should
(You speak with me all the time.)
And I am worried that my failure to pray as often as I should is keeping me from having the relationship with you that we both want.
(I want a better relationship as well.)
I feel your presence in my life all the time
(I'm there all the time.)
And I get the feeling that you're trying to tell me something
But I can't figure out what that something is.
(Your brain is my gift - use it.)
I want you to sit with me and tell me what it is - in plain English - that you have in mind for me.
(I am always by your side, and I tell you all the time what I have in mind for you but you are too afraid to follow my advice. Even though you hear me, you usually do not listen to what I am saying. It's different this time. It's like you are actually hearing me for the first time!)
I am hearing you, but I don't know where this coversation is going.
(That's the beauty of this - we are holding a coversation for the first time in your life - a conversation I have been wanting to have with you forever! And finally, you are listening to me. What more does there need to be?)
(They will come as we speak together.)
You need to slow down, Lord, because I am typing what you are saying and my keyboard is messed up and I can't type as fast as you talk anyway.
(Its like my words are already in your head before you even finish phrasing your own thoughts, right?)
Right! And people get mad at me when I do that to them. They think I am not paying attention to them...
