The prayer

Dear you,

You have never mocked me, told me my faith is stupid, and have never complained about my prayers even when it is in front of you. Because of this you have made my faith stronger. I know that you don't believe in what I believe, but you accept that I do. I appreciate that.

I wish I could tell you this. I don't know why I can't. Its like I want you to know but at the same time I don't.

Yesterday we were talking about my grandma. Even for me her faith in God/Jesus is too strong. She takes being 'On fire for Jesus' to the extreme. I brought up that because I don't like my job I pray every time before I go into to work; Something short and to the point. Grandma probably would have made a 5 min prayer out of it. This is were you mimicked her; saying a prayer like she does about me... And for a moment, I pretended it was you.

I said amen because I hoped that words that came out of your mouth were genuine. I hoped that maybe some part of you was actually praying for me. You never pray... and hearing you say "Dear heavenly father" and "in god's name we pray" made me warm inside because it came from you.

I will cherish this prayer, just in case it is the only one you will ever say, even if it was a joke.
