using our cell phones to call one another
but many of us don't think to pray.
It takes faith that someone is there,
then effort to speak our deepest desires,
to petition for Heaven's help and comfort.
He always answers quietly as any
Father would a pleading distraught child.
He loves us and will send guidance
in all things both great and small.
Where did I leave my car keys?
What do I say to my rebellious child?
He has many of them you know.
How can I forgive someone I love
who has disappointed, hurt me deeply?
How do I start over again?
Always there, always patient,
waiting and wanting to hear
our requests. He knows us well.
We have only to kneel and pray
then listen with an open heart.
