Lord,
teach us
to pray.
[Luke 11:2]
************************
"LORD?
How come You don't LIKE me?"

"I love you,
child."

"Yeah, but You love....
EVERYBODY! That's nothin'!"

"That is everything,
Mein kin`der."

"No!
You're not GETTING me,
LORD!
You love EVERYBODY, but
it's obvious to everybody on
planet......Earth
that You don't......
LIKE everybody!"

PATIENT SIGH.

"I mean,
when I PRAY....
my prayers just fall
back down on
my head like a bunch 'a
HAILSTONES!
Like.....ROCKS wrapped up
in ICE!"

PAUSE.
"It's one hundred degrees
where you are,
right now,
My child."

"HA! HA!
Ya KNOW what I mean!"

"Child,
to Whom
are you
speaking?"

"Look,
I know that I'm not
really reverent sometimes....."

"What times
are...
THOSE,
My precious?"

"Aw!
Come ON!
You KNOW I don't
TALK like that!
I'm from West Philadelphia!
We just spit it ....OUT!"

PATIENT SILENCE.

"Anyway, if I started TALKIN'
like THAT to You....
You wouldn't believe it ANYWAY!"

"Like what,
O'precious one."

"Ya know:
like....one 'a those POLYANNAS*,
or somethin'!"

PATIENT NOD.

"You'd figure I was just tryin'
to butter You.... UP."

NOD.
PAUSE.
"Sometimes,
child....
a little butter...
goes a
long.....
way."
***************************
And,
He said
to them,
Father,
Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Give us this day
our daily bread;
and forgive us
our sins,
for we ourselves
forgive every one
who is indebted to us;
and
lead us
not
into
temptation.
[Luke 11:2-4]

*When the author was a little kid,
back in the dinosaur-era,
a 'polyanna' was one of those people
who were always smiling and telling
everybody how wonderful life,
and particularly God,
was. Those people
always make the author
want to throw up.
