...A quick look inside the thoughts and prayers of a very busy woman...
Lord, You know how much trouble it causes me when my car is behaving like this! Please fix it.
And speaking of fixing: the garbage disposal has been making this funny sound, and the Hendersons are coming over tomorrow night. I've been working so hard to get the house cleaned up for them, and I would be so embarrassed if I were to have a smelly mess on my hands in front of them!
Oh, and please make the kids behave tomorrow, too! I don't want the Hendersons to think I've got brats running around the neighborhood!
Kent is up for that promotion today, and is probably with his boss right about now. Please bless that meeting--You know our finances, and how much we need the raise!
Help me to make that green light...oh, shoot.
Help me to get that good parking place...Hey, that's not fair, I was there first!
Lord, give that rude woman a flat tire on the way home--that'll teach her a lesson about first come, first served!
Lord, please let me get Sandy today for my hair appointment. That Marsha only wants to talk about herself, and her life is always such a mess! I just can't take that kind of stress, not now!
Lord, help me to get a good night's sleep tonight. I'm going to need so much energy in my busy life tomorrow! Thank you for making me such a giver, a truly selfless person.
Truly brilliant - it makes me think of Erma Bombeck's way of writing. Humorous but right on! Good job of bringing the message of pride and self-righteousness to the forefront. This reminds me of some of my prayers, and for this I beg forgiveness from our Holy Father. Yours in His name, ladybug Karen
Those of us who have known the Lord for a long time tend to talk to Him all the time. It really can get quite humerous! But I'm sure God enjoys the company and laughs along side as we expect the green light, the parking space, and the flat tire(theirs , not mine!). Mine is usually for the police to catch the one who has passed me so rudely while I proceed to tell that person what I think of them! Thanks for the candor about the "Taking God for Granted" kinds of prayers that tickle our funny bone and lighten our days! Pat
