You know, I can't remember ever asking for anything material, even food? I ask for strength and guidance and the ability to achieve what I seek or desire or even obligated to do but never for the final outcome or product EXCEPT FOR THIS:

I remember going to St. Anthony's Cathedral in Elizabeth New Jersey in 1983 at the height of my dating frenzy when it was raining men and there was a woman thrown in for fear and confusion. After the Latin Mass, I stayed behind and prayed and I remember I cried. I asked for guidance about men - HAHAHAHAHA! It's funny now. But I was solemn and fervent then. I remember asking the Lord to give me a good man, a kind and loving man for a husband who will make me love life and share my life with me, one I will adore and honor and respect and one who will give me peace of mind. I also asked for one, to whom I will never stop being attracted physically. Yes, honestly, I did. It was very interesting how that was answered! I sent the Lord's answer to meet my Father and sisters and if they approved, he would be it. See, the Lord never gives the answers so easily.

It sounds so superficial to ask for a man but it was important to me, if I were to share my life with someone and change my name for him. It had to be something that my mind and heart will be able to sustain until I die.

But my angels are something else. I think my angels are the summa cum laudes of Angel University. I love my angels!

Where DO you find this stuff, Renee...and so consistently?! You're my first laugh of the day. I have to agree that there's no such thing as a wasted prayer. Happy Saturday, my wonderful friend!! Blessings!

Have you seen the movie Northfork? In it there is a story, similar to this one where people wait for God to save them from a flood. Three times a boat comes along and asks "Come with us we will take you to safety. Each time they answer "No we are waiting, God will save us" When they drown, they come before God and ask "Why did you not save us?" God answers "I sent a boat three times".

Yes I believe in prayer, but I don't believe in waiting for an answer. Sometimes the answer comes through us, and trusting that God will intervene through our actions. I am thinking today of you and your sister. I pray, knowing that you will carry on and hoping through your actions God will intervene.

P.S. I remember a line from a movie that went "Trust in Allah, but tie up your camel".

Love it, Renee!

Kelly Lish said...

Hahahaha! That was unexpected! My first laugh of the day-thanks! Yea Renee, the hearing or lack of definately has its moments. Since I can only hear on the one side now, I can't tell where a noise, or voice is coming from either. When someone is calling my name, I have no idea which way to look-you can imagaine some embarrassing moments with that one! I try to laugh at myself alot, so that helps! I don't mind if you publish my comment-I'm pretty much an open book!
I am so glad we have become friends also Renee-you feel very important to me :)
Love to you-and enjoy your cupcake this weekend!!!!

Kelly Lish said...

Yes I bet we would be laughing our heads off, sharing those stories- My 16 year old daughter loves it when we are at a store- like Ross or something, and she will call me from another isle and just stand there and watch me looking all around! It is pretty funny sometimes!
:))

secret agent woman said...

That's funny. And you know, I think so many prayers are for petty things. I think prayer makes sense for peace, strength, healing, understanding, and so on, or given in thanks.

Marion said...

PS: There was a time in my life when I had to pray for everything, even toilet paper, especially toilet paper because food stamps didn't cover it. It was a hard time financially, but the strongest spiritual time in my entire life. I wouldn't trade it for a million dollars.

(I was broke and out of toilet paper and had 2 small kids at home, so I prayed for some TP. We went to our little Assembly of God church that night and when we got in the car to go home, there was a bag in the back seat full of, yep, toilet paper...much later a saintly little old lady in the church said she'd been praying that day and God had told her to put it there. I swear this is true and no, I still don't lock my car doors. LOL!) God listens, yes He does!!! Blessings, dearest friend!

kj said...

i pray only for big things. some of my big things are universal: world peace, abundance, tolerance. and others are big to me (please don't betray me, let me learn the lessons, etc). i tend to pray most when i'm in need, afraid, lost, which may be the wrong approach. i'm looking at that one...

have a good good day renee. it's that time of the week when i think of you most. and jacquie too.

I like this. It made me laugh at first then I thought a bit more deeply about it, and it made me think of what are good things to spend a prayer on. xx

Ha,ha,ha... thanks Renee, that was a great start to my morning with having to do our dashed quarterly tax return.

I do hope your Sunday prayers fare a little better.

Arija said...

Renee. at art school many, many years ago , it was serious 'art' and life drawing, now, due to Ces's wonderful example, I can indulge my whimsical side and just amuse myself.

Dear Renee,

Thank you for reminding us of the important things and intentions.

I saw this circa 1850 portrait of two sisters and thought of you two:

I can't believe that we have both posted about God almost simultaneously. Is that why I love your blog so much? Because our minds are in synch :-)?

Loved the caption and the humour. As you well know by now that's my kind of humour. Many, many thanks.

Greetings from London.
