Holy 911

Updated on March 3, 2011

I wish I had a Red Phone
A hot line to the throne...
to call The Lord directly
dial a Holy 911...

There hasn't been a burning bush
or mountain top for me...
no angels at my bedside
with a special delivery...

I mean this not in disrespect...
to irreverence I'm not prone.
I simply wish to speak with God
upon His telephone!

It would be much easier
to get advice direct,
to hear God's voice distinctly
when our phone lines did connect.

I would call him daily,
ask Him questions, never shy...
I'd follow His directives,
His advice I would apply.

Yes, I wish I had a Red Phone
A hot line to the throne
to call up God directly
dialing Holy 911!

      ...well you know that the new and improved epigramboy would love something like this - because your writing here shows spunk, a touch of irreverence and novelty but yet it's poignant and sweet and true and kind of sad - wow - you've got it all going here - one of my favorites by you - and this inspires the eprigramboy so much that he may become a 'man' again ......someday!!!

      I can only speak for myself, but I am a bit hard of hearing...when it comes to God's voice...Thanks for the read, kathryn and the lovely comment!

      Life would be simpler if we had that phone!I suppose it's insecurity we feel.

      AMWerner, here in lies the dilemma...hearing and recognizing the "Voice of God" burning bushes have I stumbled upon...hence the desire for...a Holy 911! Thanks for the read and comment! Peace to you too!

      So simply and true. He hears us. We just need to learn how better to hear Him. Our communication pattern isn't as sophisticated as His - or - we have over complicated it. hmmm Peace

      Thank you, lovelypaper, rosie and fossillady for your read and comment. It is too easy to hear what one wants to hear, sometimes. It would just be nice to have a direct line...this was a light hearted expression of that desire...

      I agree with lovelypaper, you have to listen for the subtleties through intuition, feelings, stuff like that. I'm not an expert or anything, its something I've been led to lately. Been reading "A Conversation with God" by Neale Donald Walsch. Supposedly God spoke directly to him, it's fascinating.

      Yes, that would be nice to hear that distinct, clear voice all the time, but hearing from the Holy Spirit is something that you have to listen for and recognise His voice.
