prayers should be honest, God already knows our mind and heart



I ask you honestly to forgive my sins of anger, doubt and selfishness. I praise you for all the power, beauty, creativity, and blessings you bestow again and again.

I thank you for all the good in my life and truthfully plead for you to granny my needs at this moment; remove my pain (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual), help me get Mom 24/7 care by Medicaid or whatever you see fit to grant. I can’t do this indefinitely AND I’d sure like it to happen before Kiawah, taking her will be difficult and not a vacation for me. Give Matthew and Molly a nice long happy life. Give Terry and me some years of health, joy and passion.

In your son, Christ’s name,


PS I don’t know how long I can keep taking care of Mom. Help her accept what comes.

Lord, I’m on my deck with you, coffee and a sweet treat, first in several days. It’s damp but cool. Of course you know that.

I’m begging again for answers for mom, solutions for the family and hope for all who suffer the sorrow of dementia. It’s so hard. Three months is forever with dementia for the demented and the caregiver, in this case both mother and daughter, but of course you know that.

I praise you and your word that gives comfort to all who hurt when trouble and sadness strike but of course you know that.

I thank you for all the good years and blessings with Mom. She’d thank you if she could and maybe she does in her own way but of course you know that.


PS I’d appreciate your expedient reply to these needs but of course you know that.
