Day 23: Note to God

It’s no secret that we can talk to God whenever and wherever we want.   There isn’t a place or a time that is inconvenient for us to drop him a line, talk with him, communicate with him.  Anywhere and anytime is fine.  God doesn’t mind, he actually encourages it.

For today’s song, I decided to go with Charice’s note-belching song, Note to God which could be found on her self-titled album and downloaded via iTunes.

I decided to give this post a different spin as I posted a question on Facebook and Formspring last night.

The question was:  If you could write a note to God, what would you say? What would you tell him? What would you write to him?

I managed to get a couple of answers from people from both social networking sites and I decided to share them here with you all.  Below are the some of the answers that I have received.

God thank you for the blessings, and whatever i am receiving please share my blessings with the unfortunate people.

“I would write songs of praises and spell out hyms of thansgiving…I would tell Him and thank Him how blessed I am for having you, Abby, Mara and Papa… I would ask Him to give us the grace to be steadfast in prayer and that someday be with Him in heaven.
Ana Maria Martinez (my mom)

thank you..i love you.. =)
~ Kheyc Ibarrola Pabria

I would tell God that He’s so great for giving me awesome blessings everyday! And He rocks! :)) AMEN! 😀
~ Yorish Mendoza

Uhm, i’ll tell him i’m grateful to all the things he had given me and i love him. 🙂
~ Mikee

What do all the answers have in common?  Yeah, you got that right.  Giving thanks.  Many people totally forget about prayer as soon as they got whatever it is that they prayed for.  I mean, we usually pray the hardest when (1) someone we love is sick, hurt, or dying; (2) we want to win the lottery; (3) we really, really need something that we think we can’t live without; (4) a big exam is coming and we want to be able to pass; (5) there’s a calamity or natural disaster; (6) we think that the world’s about to end and we want to ask God that he would give us mercy.

Yeah, I know…number six is pretty extreme but that’s when the majority of people usually pray.

Please give me money…

Please let me get that big break…

Please give us a miracle…

Please save her life…

And so forth and so on…

But you get the picture, don’t you?  The only time we seem to be praying is when we want something.  In the whole booming population of the world, I think there’s only a quarter or so people who actually pray to give thanks or pray for the sake of just talking to God.

How hard is it to pray just to let God know that you are thankful for all the blessings he has given you today?  How hard is it to pray just to let God know that you do have time for him, that you want to go and say: “Hey, God…I’m just dropping a line to let you know that although I am not worthy of the things you have given me, I am very happy and thankful that you have given them to me.”?

I doubt that that’s hard.  It won’t even take too long to just recite a prayer to him.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a Muslim, a Jew, a Protestant, or a Christian… we all have one thing in common, we all believe in one God.  We all know how to pray.  If we can waste a couple of hours a day staring at our computer screens waiting for something to happen to Facebook, or tweeting our thoughts in Tweeter, then why can’t we use even a measly five-minutes for prayer?

Praying is a powerful thing.  It is something transcendental.

Everything, everyday, every how should begin with a prayer and it should also end with a prayer.

Having said that, below are the lyrics to this awesome and beautiful song.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

If I wrote a note to God
I would speak what’s in my soul
I’d ask for all the hate to be swept away
For love to overflow

If I wrote a note to God
I’d pour my heart out on each page
I’d ask for war to end
and for peace to mend this world

I’d say
I’d say
I’d say

Give us the strength to make it through
Help us find love, cause love is overdue
And it seems like so much is going wrong
On this road we’re on

If I wrote a note to God
I’d say please help us find a way
End all the bitterness, put some tenderness
in our hearts

I’d say
I’d say
I’d say

Give us the strength to make it through
Help us find love, cause love is overdue
And it looks like we haven’t got a clue
Need some help from you

Grant us the faith to carry on
Give us hope when it seems all hope is gone
Cause it seems like so much is going wrong
On this road we’re on

No
No

We can’t do it on our own

So
So

(Give us the strength to make it through
Help us find love, cause love is overdue)
And it looks like we haven’t got a clue
Need some help

Grant us the faith to carry on
Hope when it seems all hope is gone
Cause it seems like so much is going wrong
On this road we’re on

No
No
(No)We can’t do it on our own

(So)
So
