Prayer 141

The prayer series

Jesus,

I miss you.
Although you always stay around me, I miss you.

Everytime I miss you, I open the Holy Bible to read.
Reading the Holy Bible is reading your heart.
I want to understand you more.

(I’m opening the Holy Bible.)
What book do you want me to read?
Psalm?
Okay… I love it…
Uhm…

Ecclesiastes?
Oh, I love it!
Wisdom and folly are meaningless*?
Wow, I read before and I want to think about it now.
How do you know me so well?
Let’s talk about it today, Jesus,
and tomorrow, day after tomorrow…
until I feel I see you more clearly.

I love you, Jesus.

Amen.

PTH

Footnote:

*Ecclesiastes 2:12-16 New International Version (NIV)

Wisdom and Folly Are Meaningless

12 Then I turned my thoughts to consider wisdom,
and also madness and folly.
What more can the king’s successor do
than what has already been done?
13 I saw that wisdom is better than folly,
just as light is better than darkness.
14 The wise have eyes in their heads,
while the fool walks in the darkness;
but I came to realize
that the same fate overtakes them both.
15 Then I said to myself,

“The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?”
I said to myself,
“This too is meaningless.”
16 For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
