~ A Prayer ~

God,

Help me to remember the jerk who cut me off in traffic last night is a single parent who worked nine hours that day and is rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry and spend a few precious moments with their child.
Help me to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man who can't make change correctly is a worried 19-year-old college student, balancing his apprehension over final exams with his fear of not getting his student loans for next semester.
Remind me, Lord, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the same spot every day is a slave to addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares.
Help me to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slow through the store aisles and blocking our shopping progress are savoring this moment, knowing that, based on the biopsy report she got back last week, this will be the last year that they go shopping together.
God, remind us each day that, of all the gifts you give us, the greatest gift is love. It is not enough to share that love with those we hold dear. Open our hearts not to just those that are close to us, but to all humanity. Let us be slow to judge and quick to forgive; show patience, empathy and love.
Amen.
This compassionate, moving prayer was found in the Sunday, October 16, 2005 Sunday services program for Springville Church of the Nazarene. Head Pastor: Lee Sorenson.

~ Listen ~

When I ask you to listen to me and you start giving me advice, you have not done what I asked of you.
When I ask you to listen to me and you begin to tell me why I shouldn’t feel that way, you are disregarding my feelings.
When I ask you to listen to me and you feel you have to do something to solve my problem, you are not listening, you are taking control.
Can you please just listen? All that I asked was that you listen, not talk or do --- just hear me.
When you do something for me that I can and need to do for myself, you contribute to my fear and inadequacy, and feeling helpless.
But when you accept as a simple fact that I do feel what I feel, no matter how irrational, then I quit trying to convince you and get about the business of understanding what’s behind the irrational feeling. Just talking can help me figure it out.
When that’s clear, the answers are obvious and I don’t need advice, maybe just support.
Irrational feelings make sense when we understand what’s behind them.
So, please listen and just hear me . . .
And, if you want to talk, wait a minute for your turn --- and I’ll listen to you.
