Oh! Lord I know I am very talkative

I do talk, talk, talk,

About my own things and my own doings,

And never thought of listening to you

 My talk most of the time I feel, go frolicsome

Lord, is that the reason I stumble away from you?

Or is that my selfish nature keeps me away from you?

Lord, I feel that people around me are not giving-

any attention to my deeds and words.

I quite often feel a kind of loneliness in my life.

Is that the reason I talk and talk about myself,

At every available opportunities to friends-

Relatives and even to my far away contacts

via internet, the amazing creation of mankind.

Lord I feel guilty for neglecting You and Your Words-

And I gave importance to the creations.

Lord I am reminded of the deeds of Romans * 1

“They worshiped and served the creature rather than the creator

He is and He alone is blessed and worthy of worship.”

Lord now I realize that I am no less than the Romans.

Though literally not worshiping the creation.

But I know it’s almost the same as they did.

Today again I am reminded of your Word

By the great servant of You who wrote:

“He who turns away his ear from listening to the law.

Even his prayer is an abomination to you” * 2

Though this is written in your Word as a warning

I did not heed to it as worthy as it deserved.

Lord I know this is against your will and pleasure.

Lord thank you for thy servant who made

Mention of it again in his book for the admonition of thy people. * 3

Lord teach me to know thy precepts

And help me to follow according to your guidelines.

Lord forgive me for the misconception about the people around.

Oh! Lord, today while I was jotting down these lines,

I received yet another message via SMS in my 'cell phone' * 4

 Yet another wonderful creation of mankind.

“Da word “LISTEN” contains d same letters

 As ‘SILENT’. Listen 2 GOD in d silence of   UR Heart.

N you’ll know His perfect plans 4 you.”

Oh Lord I neglected you and your precepts miserably

Oh Lord forgive me, and give thy wisdom to listen to your Voice.

Lord give me thy strength to listen to your Word

Lord help me to heed thy soothing and sweet Voice.

Lord forgive me for misunderstanding thy people.

And forgive me for the time I wasted in vain.

Lord teach me to listen to your lovely voice

Lord please help me to listen you daily

Lord I know you never stop talking to me

Though I fail to listen to you

Lord accept this humble prayer and help me to do thy precepts

According to thy desire and pleasure

Thank you Lord for hearing my cry.
