Please don’t misunderstand me. I know all this has to be done, but not for the role I feel called to play. Details and analysis are counterproductive (to use a worldly term) to my prayer. The more silent and simple I become, the clearer God can hear my prayer for love, which I believe is the prayer of everyone--the church-goer, the upright citizen, the helpful, the helpless, the mentally ill, everyone. We all want the unconditional love that is God; that is what I am praying for.
