Pray then like this: “Our Father”

prodigal
“Abba – if I had my life to live over again, I’d climb more mountains, swim more rivers and watch more sunsets. But most of all, I would love your Son Jesus and those around me, and I would let them know before life’s evening.

Abba – if I had my life to live over again, I’d eat more ice cream and less beans. I’d take more trips and burn more gasoline. But most of all, I would love your Son Jesus and the least of my brothers and sisters, and I would let them know before life’s evening.

Abba – you know how I tend to live every day. I never go anywhere without a water bottle, a snack, a raincoat, an umbrella, a parachute and a raft. But if I had my life to live over again, I’d take a few more chances next time. I’d have more real problems and fewer imaginary ones. I’d ride more merry-go-rounds, I’d pick more daisies. I’d go barefoot earlier in the Spring and I’d stay out later in the Fall.

But most of all, I would love your Son Jesus and those around me, and I would let them know before life’s evening. Amen.”
