My Prayer to God

by Flyaway1

Dear God,

Can we sit on this bench and talk for awhile. There is so much I do not understand.

Many difficult times have come my way: cancer, death, mental illness, substance abuse and more. ....but I have learned to trust you more.

As I sit on this bench tonight, all I ask is just to rest. Take care of those I love. Keep them, guide them and meet their needs. I have nothing left to give.

Let me lay down by your still waters. I want to sleep deeply in your love. Wake me, when I feel restored.

This is all I need to ask. As you leave, I will sit on this bench and watch the sun go down. Joy always comes in the morning.

Glad we had this chat.


Dear God, writing prompt entry

Write a letter to God expressing your most pressing concerns and/or questions believing with all your heart and soul, that He will receive, read and answer you. Your letter does not necessarily have to be be a request. Just a sincere heart to heart will do.

Prayer is something I do all the time. I usually pray for others and forget my needs. Was nice to sit and think about what I would ask for.
