    The Unanswered Plea of Centuries

    You know
    Just for once
    Give me a God
    Who understands
    A God that answers
    A God that heeds
    And acts on prayers

    A God that doesn’t pretend
    With mysterious hog wash
    And convenient coincidence

    A God profound
    In it’s helping hand
    Who doesn’t leave us
    Praying for centuries
    For some kind of explanation

    A God who’s goal
    Is happiness and love
    Who devises miracles to make it so
    Who comprehends the human misery
    And really, really
    Knows what it means to be

    Just for once
    Give me a God who doesn’t need praise
    And the endless devotion of sin and hymns
    Give me a God
    Who listens instead
    A benign benefactor
    A protector of innocence
    A smiling sympathy
    For life’s encumberments
    Who just wants us to be whole

    Just for one aching, burning, longing, everlasting time
    Give me a God who is sublime
    And doesn’t hide behind
    The pretence of some religion
    Of the desperate need to believe
    In some irrefutable truth

    Give me a God
    Who really cares
    Who has a grip
    And a compassion
    For the overwhelming possibilities
    Of the happy human

    Just for once
    Give me a God
    Who actually gives a damn

    Give me a God
    With a real helping hand
    And not some vague will to comprehend

    And this
    This has been the quiet plea
    The unanswered prayer of man
    For centuries

      I have been struggling with the exact same thoughts lately. It seems as though there is no love to be seen in the God that has been portrayed. Maybe god really is loving and kind and compassionate and not condemning and we just are not open to it. All i know is that i pray and pray to see the truth and feel this love-side of God, but I don't. The bible makes Him out to be one sided and almost cuel and i can't accept that.
