Why do you pray only now and then?
Am I not important to you?
In times of trouble, you cry to Me
You pray when life makes you to
How do you think a father feels
When his son rarely visits or call?
He knows if He wouldn't help
His son wouldn't communicate at all
I want My children to love Me
Not just by words, but deeds;
To pour out their hearts because of praise
Not because they have a need
I will always love you, My son
Even if you never talk to Me;
But I want you to know I do feel pain
And cry tears, you just can't see
How much more I love you
Than anyone ever could;
I give you gifts, and help in trouble
Yet you don't love Me like you should
Please don't take My love for granted
And pray but once in a while;
Will you call often because you love Me?
It sure would make Me smile
