I was just following a van and the bumper sticker said, "Pray the Rosary for World Peace."
I just can't get over everybody thinking God is finally going to do something about this mess and that gimmicks are the secret to it all. Beads, candles, incense, chants, Pay Lay Ale's in a circle in fancy dress. How long has this been going on now? How many millennia? Used to be you burned something on the altar to get God's favor. Perhaps if we went back to that he'd pay some attention finally?
Your child is lost in the woods? Let's all pray to God. If enough of us do it we might get his attention and then if we really lay on the praise he might help. Cuz God knows every hair on your child's head, but is unaware that she is hanging from a branch by a cliff after running from the boogey man.
And if you really want your Heavenly Father to listen, try fasting too besides begging on your knees. Never worked before, but always worth a try. And you can lose a few pounds.
Or put your friend's name, the one who has cancer, on the prayer roll at the temple. Cuz Heavenly father who loves all his children just might take a look at that one. Could happen, right? Oh, she died anyway? God must've needed her to be a missionary in heaven or else maybe the prayer didn't work because somebody in the prayer circle didn't have his baker's hat tied to the right shoulder.
All the religions got you supplicating like crazy, not just the Mormons. Thoughts and prayers for everyone! Yay! And don't forget if God doesn't answer, you can always try his mother--well if you got the rosary beads. Or all the saints. Maybe they can get his holy attention. And if not, they can get him some Ritalin.
All so desperate. The one that really gets me is praying for God to bless the surgeon who's going to operate. He's been to school,did an internship, knows your body inside out, how it works and understands the disease. He's all practiced up and ready to go. But he still needs you to pray to god to guide his hands.
God is nothing but a holy busy signal, if even that.
Prayer. You gotta have a gimmick though.
