Can God hear my prayer if I don't believe in Him?

Updated on November 29, 2011

Dear God

I place my hands together in a silent symbol of respect. As a child I used to clap them, CLAP. Just like that, just as I snapped my hymn book shut. SNAP like that. "Glad that I live am I, that the sky is blue.."

Well I suppose I have grown up a little now. I have children of my own, and I question your existence. I'm sure you don't exist. It would perhaps be better for you if you didn't, for you would be so very unjust and cruel if you followed the rules of 'religion'. But say for a moment, you don't. Say you just ARE a listening thing that can do things, could you listen to my prayer?

I would like for all the poor souls who have met painful and bloody ends to be at peace and as happy as one can be when lost in a love.

I don't wish to worship you and give you credit for everything good, for in that case I would have to hate you and blame you for everything bad. For all the night shows the stars as beautiful, without them the night would be an engulfing blackness. I cannot give you credit for that.

And that dark place you put us in from time to time, why do you do it more with some and less with others? Surely that is not fair?

Is it man who have abandoned you? If they know not of your existence, surely it is you who have abandoned them?

If I come to you with open arms, does that make me good? Or just judgemental to everyone else who has not?

Look at that....I am asking you questions. That is silly as you do not speak.

You act I think. You create tsunamis, you command the wind, sea and fire.

You are nothing more than human, as it is the Human mind which created you. It is the human mind which has manipulated you like a weapon.

You see what happens if you don't worship God? Pits of eternal fire can't match the pain that people suffer all over the world, every day.
