Prayer is like…..
Sitting in a cafe, waiting to order menu read, selections made but not a waitress in sight. Fidgeting, reading and re-reading the choices. Tired of waiting, ready to complain , ready to leave. When suddenly, she’s there at the table all smiles armed with a pen and a pad and a pot of coffee. Welcome, what can I get you? she says as she fills up your cup.
And you notice the sign: ‘Please place your order at the counter’
And gingerly say: Nice coffee!
