Prayer, Plain and Simple

A nun once asked the students in her class to write a letter to God.  Here are some of the results. Lessons in honest and simple prayer:

 

Dear God:

If you watch me in church on Sunday, I’ll show You my new shoes.

– Mickey

 

Dear God:

Did You mean for the giraffe to look like that or was it an accident?

– Norma

 

Dear God:

Thank you for the baby brother, but what I prayed for was a puppy.

– Joyce

 

Dear God:

Please send me a pony. I never asked for anything before.  You can look it up.

– Bruce

 

Dear God:

I want to be just like my Daddy when I get big, but not with so much hair all over.

– Sam

 

Dear God:

I think about You sometimes even when I’m not praying.

– Elliot

 

Dear God:

Thank you for the baby brother but what I asked for was a puppy.  

– Joyce

Dear God:

You don’t have to worry about me.  I always look both ways.
– Dean

Dear God:

My brother told me about being born but it doesn’t sound right.  

– Marsha

Dear God:

I am doing the best I can.  

Frank

 

Go and do likewise: Short, sweet, honest, true!
