It’s been a few days since I’ve prayed. I know you’re always there, waiting patiently, watching over me and everyone else. You have a lot to do and I feel like you’re so busy….sometimes it just feels like I’m pestering you. Everyone says, nope, you’re here for each and everyone of us. I don’t see how you do it. But then again, that’s why you’re God right?
You know I have this problem with praying for myself. I don’t like asking for things. I believe the last time I prayed for myself was about three years ago when my husband was diagnosed with renal cancer. I prayed for him of course that you would rid his body from the disease. I prayed that you would give me the strength and the right words and courage to see it through and to be a good wife for him during this horrific journey. Of course, you came through for me. I didn’t break down until after the surgery where they removed the mass from his kidney. He never saw me shed a tear but afterwards I fell to my knees and cried happy tears and thanked you over and over again for sparing us and taking such good care of us during that time.
You take care of us every single day. Yes, I know, I’m not the most devoted or ever speak of you here on my blog or even in my everyday life. I actually cuss a lot and I know that upsets you. I could be so much better….if only I would be mindful. I don’t go to church either. But, I do pray.
Today…..I have some hefty requests for you. I’ve decided to start blogging to you and anyone who wants to read it once a week here on Sundays.
I’m praying for a very dear friend of mine. We’ll call her Sophie as there are people here that might know her if I used her real name. She suffers from depression and she’s one of the most beautiful human beings I’ve ever known. Nope, never met her in person but there’s something about her that makes me feel like I really honestly know her. She shares so much of her life with me and she feels comfortable enough to tell me how she feels and how she hurts everyday. She doesn’t believe in herself like I believe in her. She worries constantly about her family and her finding a job. She’s a kind, sweet, caring, overly talented person and has so much going for her. I feel that if you could just give her some good news or just make her feel better about herself everything would fall into place. She struggles daily and it’s as if there’s something in her mind that holds her back and makes her feel as if she’s not worthy of anything good happening for her. God, she’s so worthy. Can you put her on your list of people to work on and to help her out?
One more for you. I know this one is gigantic and I know I’m asking for A LOT. I don’t understand why the racism is still going on. The protests with the KKK, white supremacist, and so on. I don’t understand why Trump can’t see what’s going on and to do something about it. Does he not have compassion for others? What about doing the right thing? I see cops taking down people and cuffing them and then continuously beating them while they’re already down. I don’t get it. I also don’t understand why there’s so much hate in this world and why we have to go to war? Why was Kim Jong Un threatening to release nuclear strike on so many people? I don’t get it. I want a miracle to happen and I know ONLY you can do it. I want this racism, war, and hate to all stop. Each of us, White, African American, Pakistanian, Korean, LGBT, Muslim, Transgender, etc. are brothers and sisters and we all belong to you. Can you fix this? If anyone can, it’s you.
As for me, I don’t need anything. I’ve got everything I need here. I’m healthy, I can see, I have food, a roof over my head, a job, and I thank you for all you’ve given me. I want to say THANK YOU for always looking out for each of us even though we don’t deserve your love and at times we’re intolerable, you’re still here.
