Ya' down with G-O-D? Yeah, you know me!
This is what happens when I try to pray. This is an actual prayer that just escaped from my lips.
"God, please make this horrible itchy feeling go away. Seriously, I feel miserable. Please give me peace. I haven't had a feeling of peace for days now. I mean, I know you probably can't take it away TOTALLY, cuz of the meds and stuff--crap, who am I talking to? It's GOD. Of COURSE he can "take it away totally." Crap, now I just said crap in my prayer. Sorry, God. So anyway, if you can take this feeling away totally and give me some peace and rest, I would so appreciate it. But if you can't, please just take it away at least a little. Thanks. Amen."
And the funniest part? I really DO feel calmer--"at least a little." God must have a sense of humor.
