I want to share with you this poem by Phil Hodges, which shows the possibilities of prayer.
Just suppose, when I pray, there really is someone listening who cares about me and wants to know what is on my mind.
Just suppose, when I pray, it changes me and my view of how the universe operates and who is involved.
Just suppose, I put my doubts aside for a minute and consider the possibility that someone who knew me before I
was born loves me, warts and all, without condition or reservation, no matter how badly I have behaved in the past.
Just suppose, a prayer was my first response instead of my last resort when facing a new challenge or an old temptation.
Just suppose, I lived each day, knowing that there is an inexhaustible supply of love for me to pass along to others.
