A Prayer for Reconnection
by Susan Johnstone

Dear Lord

Itís me again
I know I have been preoccupied
and slack (with you)
and busy (with my stuff)
and I havenít taken enough time
to talk
and to listen properly

I know I really need to

Iíve been learning and reading and
discovering more about You
and thatís great
but thereís no point knowing about You
without knowing You personally

And I know I have spent time with You
on many occasions
but sometimes I take You for granted
and I need to reconnect

I need to really grasp the fact
that You love me and You know me
intimately
and while I know my friends
and I know a lot about them
I still may forget their birthdays
or not even know their wedding anniversaries
Yet you know them inside out
as well as knowing me!
And you know all the people in Stanthorpe intimately
- their thoughts, their actions, their hopes and fears
And you know all the people in Queensland
And all the people in Australia
And all the people in the world

I canít even comprehend how You can
keep up with all thatís going on
the people who are starving and in war
and struggling from floods and earthquakes
I know nothing about them
But You know them and love them

Help me to have a heart for them also

And yet with all those people on Your mind
You still take time to listen to me
Who am I?
Just a nobody amongst the mass of humanity
Yet You love me
You spend time with me

And I donít even appreciate that
the way I should
I stop to pray
but I am impatient and get distracted
thinking, What will I wear today?
Will it warm up, or will it be cool and windy?
And how did we get so much cat hair on the bed?


And meanwhile You are waiting
for me to resume my conversation with You
And You have every right to be offended
I have no real concept of Your majesty
How dare I keep the King of the universe waiting

Iím sorry

So please help me
to see You
to know You and
to love You

I do want to be close to You
Help me to mean it and to follow through
Lord, help me for my unbelief

Thank You so much

with love,

Me
