Negotiating in Prayer

Friday 11th March

For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday, which passes like a watch in the night.

A reading from psalm 90 and my mind wandered.

I was reminded of the person who used negotiation as a form of prayer.

“Lord is it true that a thousand years in your sight is as but a moment?”

And the Lord replied: “Yes, my child!”

And the person prayed: ” Would a million gold coins be but as a penny to you?”

And the Lord replied: “Yes, my child!”

“Could I have loan of a penny, Lord?”

“In a moment, my child!”

Offer prayer and don’t negotiate, but then we are only human.
