How to Send an E-mail to God
By Arthur Levine
A lot of
us want to have more faith and get closer to God. The question is
how do we do this? Maybe we should strip away our
inhibitions, unlock our imaginations, and send an imaginary e-mail
Maybe you could send God an imaginary e-mail in the form of a
prayer. After all, God is always interested in hearing our prayers,
isn’t he? It is not the type of thing that you have to worry
him opting into. God is always listening.
How would we start? Perhaps the subject line could read, “Dear
God hear my prayer.” No I am afraid that would be too long.
about, “Prayer to God” That might do the trick nicely
and we would
have no fear of spamming the recipient.
I think it is best to leave any request for help to the body
of the text. What would you like to ask for? Good health is often
a way to go, but I think you need to get more personal and specific
How about telling God that you are tired of patching yourself
together with temporary quick fixes to control your weaknesses
like smoking, eating, or drinking too much? That should get Gods
attention, don’t you think?
I wonder what God would say in an answer to us? Maybe he would
tell us to stop trying to patch ourselves together and find more
faith so that we could be strong enough to overcome our weaknesses
with his help. Maybe we could use our imaginations to develop
our own personal faith patch to replace all those other temporary
patches and help us deal with our problems. Maybe we could use
You don’t have to worry about the address or click on the
button in this imaginary e-mail. I believe that God is always
interested in hearing our prayers no matter what form they take.
Are you ready to send a message of faith to God?
You don’t have to worry about sending this e-mail to the
address because God is always with us and has a universal address.
You don’t even have to type out this e-mail on your word
You can just think it.
Whatever you do, try and rely on your faith in God to help you
overcome your weaknesses. Stop trying to patch yourself together.
Try and find more faith so that you can learn to cope with your
personal problems and the troubles of our time like terrorism
and natural disasters.
Don’t forget to leave your personal signature in your e-mail
to God. It’s not that he doesn’t know who you are;
it is just
that he may be waiting to hear that you are becoming a Person
of Faith. It might help for you to mention this in your signature
An example could read something like this:
Statement that you are becoming a Person of Faith
Statement that you believe in God
Your e-mail address (unnecessary)
Your telephone number (unnecessary)
God knows where to find you.
Are you ready to stop patching yourself together?
Are you ready to become a Person of Faith?
God may be waiting to hear from you. •
