Dear Lord
(Yes?)
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
(I am.)
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...

    Thanks so much for your hearts Kyra_blue, G R L, GabyVaughan, monkeychow, Vedder, and MoN!

    @Kyra_blue - Let me first apologize for how long this response to your compliment is - but I felt I needed to offer a little more than a simple thank you and it turned into this novella...I can't accept credit for the brilliance of this. I just sat down and started typing a prayer. At first I was putting words into God's mouth - answering for him like I imagined he would answer, but it soon became something else. In the beginning - I hope you can tell - it doesn't really seem like I'm having a conversation with God - more like I am praying like everyone does - just saying words into the air - while, even though God is talking, I am not really listening for what God is saying - almost like I am ignoring Him. But somewhere along the way, God actually started telling me what to write, so I - like all those atheletes you see on TV (only my sentiment is absolutely not for show) - give all credit to God for this one. Can't resource him though... since He doesn't have a hitRECord account.

    Seriously - the only editing I did for this was to correct MOST of the spelling errors. I did correct this line while I was doing it - but I wouldn't call that an edit - more like clarifying what I heard in my head in light of the multitude of images and words that flashed before me in the instant that line came into existence:

    (Its like my words are already in your head before you even finish phrasing your own thoughts, right?)

    By the way - that line was already formulated in my head while I was in the middle of writing the line before it, so when it came time to actually write it, I had originally written "even finish saying what you want" - and decided on the final parusal for spelling errors (with some devine intervention I am sure) that what was really meant was what I changed it to.

    The rest of this is an unedited transcript of the live conversation I had with God.

    Well, Todd, even as a conduit, this is a great piece. Think most untapped inspiration comes from another place- a place of watchfulness. There is a ton of witty wisdom in this- I think as a writer you have a great balance.

    Thanks for your hearts jestferlaffs, kouralilly, saintmaker, sinnamin, and Emma Conner!

    jestferlaffs - I'm glad you liked it!

    Kyra_blue - you're right.

    saintmaker - vice-god - funny! However, if elected, I must inform you that I will refuse the office and throw my weight (however little that may be) behind the incumbent.
