A Jew’s Open Letter to God: The world needs Your response…

Praying Angel, God

Dear God,

I know when I personally pray and come before You, it is normally in my heart or I put in a prayer request at Your Western Wall, the outer wall that stands before Your Holy Temple Mount.

I will try my best to tell You what is on my mind as the Jew that I am, but hopefully speak on behalf of humanity with the blessing of being able to write this on a platform that I have. So here goes.

I know You hear us, and communicate to us in Your own way. I have seen miracles that You do. Even the small ones that remind us that You are still here watching over us.

You keep us safe from the evil that is in this world. I wake up thankful, that You give me a day to help make the world a better place. I know I am far from perfect but I believe in You and I have full faith that You will listen to what I have to say because You are a caring loving God.

The world is getting more and more dangerous by the minute. Whether it is due to terrorism, war, illegal child kidnappings, and more. We have people in our governments who are even trying to remove You from people’s lives as if You don’t exist.

Even Your people, the nation of Israel, is divided amongst each other more than ever before and, honestly, I don’t see us unifying without Your help.

You promised us in Your words, that You will send a redeemer, Moshiach, Messiah. I know many people from different faiths have a different outlook as to who the Messiah is, but the majority of good, honest, caring people are begging for one. Begging for world redemption, to end the pain and suffering in the world.

We are now in the times where the good is bad and the bad is good and it seems like it will get worse. The world needs Your response, just enough to give them hope. Please God, that is what I am asking here, for you to show the world hope that You are here and there will be a better future in this world.

Thank you God for hearing me out. No matter what happens from here on out, I will be Your faithful servant and will do my best to make a home for You in this world.
