This I Understand

Five Days of Prayer – Day 2

You believe at last!
    —John 16:31

Dear God,

There are things I don’t understand.

I don’t understand …

why babies die,
why children are abused,
why psycho butchers are allowed to mutilate and murder the helpless,
why good people get cancer,
why companions die when the love story has barely begun.

I don’t understand  …

how you can think about me and everyone else in the world at the same time,
how you can listen to—and answer—millions of prayers simultaneously,
how the Holy Spirit indwells me.

But this I understand …

that you are God,
that you will always do what is best for me,
that you gave your Son to die for me,
that you love me.

Thank you Father.

P.S. I love you too.

We don’t have to understand everything
to understand the most important things.
