The Unbeliever’s Prayer


Listen, I know it has been awhile since we talked

I have long believed you are not there to hear me

But if I have ever had my doubts, they come now

I will place this ounce of hope on bended knee

You already know why I come to ask this of you

If you are really you, somewhere way up there

They said you were caring kind, a God of love

Will you please show your children how to care

Amen…and thanks!

  1. It seems somewhat ironic to me that we humans mess this shit up, and then expect some higher power to reach down and fix it for us. I too would love the higher power I believe in to fix this, but my expectation is that given the freedom of choice, We all need to suffer the consequences of our actions.

    We all have a hand in this, but also need all the backup help we can get

    I think we were shown. Too many simply choose not to.

    It’s a sad, sad world we live in. I know there are good people out there, but I come in contact with so many who aren’t, (don’t we all?) It’s so discouraging.

    seems like a reasonable request…

    I’m picturing this request going right to the top. 911—What is your emergency?

    Oh wowza, what a fine piece of ‘from the heart and soul’ writing.

    This is beautiful and honest!!

    This reminds me of Hebrews 11:6 which says, “Moreover, without faith it is impossible to please God well, for whoever approaches God must believe that he is and that he becomes the rewarder of those earnestly seeking him.”
    Prayer is a powerful tool of communication. But if we don’t believe God exists and don’t have confidence that he hears us then he can’t expect an answer to our prayers. We have to show faith first and then can have confidence that our prayers are heard and will be answered (1 John 5:14).
