Bless the Lord
O my soul....
Bless the Lord
O my soul...
Who forgives
all your iniquity,
Who heals all
your diseases,
Who redeems your life
from the Pit.
[Psalms 103:1-4]
*************************
"I'm hurtin', Lord.
Can You FIX it?"

"Fix what,
My child."

"EVERYTHING!
(Kvetchy look.)
THAT'S what!"

[NOD.]

"Heck; I've got
some high cholesterol,
backaches,
as well as acid reflux.....
of my heart, Lord."

[LOVING GAZE.]

"I went out, and bought a big
bottle of FISH oil pills....
(Grimmace!)
...like my doc TOLD me to do,
Lord!"

[NOD.]
"Go on,
sweet one."

"HUH?
(Shake head in confusion.)
Well.....I bought the ones
which looked the BIGGEST,
to me!
Ya KNOW?
(Puzzled squint.)
The problem is.... they're
so BIG, I can't even
SWALLOW'em!
ECH!"

[CALM NOD.]
[STARE OFF, FOR A MOMENT,
AT THE NEW PRESIDENTIAL-ELECT
BEING WELCOMED INTO THE
WHITE HOUSE OVAL OFFICE.]

"Hey.....LORD!"
I'M over HERE!"

"I see you,
My child."

"WELL?"

[SILENCE.]

"Aw, come on!
You do it, for
EVERYBODY ELSE!"

"Who AM I,
child?"

"Well......it says right HERE,
the One Who Moves
MOUNTAINS!"

[SMILE.]
"Where, child?"

"Well......YOU ought'a
KNOW! You WROTE
it!"

[PATIENT NOD.]
"Read It,
to Me,
little one."

"Eh.........

For truly,
I say to you,
if you have the
faith of a mustard seed,
you will say to this
mountain, Move......
and it will move..
[Matthew 17:20-21]

WELL?"

[NOD.]

"Well, they said You'd
MOVE it!"

"Who, child?"

"Eh....You know."

[SMILE.]
"I'm listening."

"Well.....You know.
(Long pause.)
You know.........
JESUS!"

[SILENCE.]

"SEE?
(Smile!)
I used to have trouble
saying His NAME!"

[PATIENT NOD.]

"SO?
What about it?
Can Ya start with this
acid stuff that keeps
comin' up.....in my
HEART?"

"I already have
started, My child."

"HOW?"

"You just said
My Name."
***************************
Hear my cry,
O God,
listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth
I call to Thee,
when my heart
is faint.
[Psalms 61:1]
