Please Hear My Prayer
Dear Jesus, Please Hear My Prayer. I want to believe in you and your miraculous powers, I really do. I was raised in a devout Catholic home, and as long as I remember have been hearing about your divine nature and limitless compassion.

I also know that your compassion compels you to assist those who suffer, and to hear their agonized prayers...

One could probably feed 5000 with a good deal less than it takes to build a ... you name it. Or so my addled mind senses. I think Jesus largely gets a bum rap from the church, on our sagacious TV channels and in our wondrous films.
I go for simple, radical, conflict-averse, negotiational, iconoclastic and such.
