“Have a Blessed Day Sweetheart” by S.E. Reed
“Are you there God? It’s me, Iris,” I say looking at my reflection in the bedroom mirror. “IRIS! Get your ass downstairs, the bus ain’t gonna wait much longer,” Grandma shouts from the bottom landing. “Crap,” I grab my backpack and run down the stairs two at a time. I’ll have to finish my conversation with God later. I give Grandma a kiss and grab my lunch sack from her hand and fly out the front door,...
“The Stoning” by Howard Seeley
“Are you there, God? It’s me. You know I’m a lonely woman, so please forgive me for what I am about to do.” Joanna glanced back the door, showing her an escape from this temptation, but she knew what lied beyond it was hell on Earth. Her agonizing journey began nearly a year ago when her father arranged for her to marry Joel. Had her father known the true nature of the man who was to become his son in-law, he s...
“Waiting on an Answer ” by Kameron Urquhart
Are you there God? It's me... your child. Am I your child? Because I do not feel like your child right now. Aren't you supposed to be there for your children? Aren't you supposed to help them? Reassure them? Make sure they know that everything is okay? Well, it doesn't seem like that's what you've been doing. Maybe I am just too far away and I can't hear you. Maybe I've closed a door and I just can't see you. Well, whate...
“The Final Letter” by Dhruv Srivastava
Are you there God? It’s me, Jesus. Actually, my name is Paul, but wasn’t Paul one of Jesus’ friends - apostles, if you will? Anyway… Paul Schmidt, he is me, and I is him. I’m writing to you because I read somewhere online that if you list out all your problems in a letter to someone it helps get them off your chest. Well, I have a lot of problems, and strangely enough I seem to have them all with you, God. I have spent ...
“The Search” by Ravi Srivastava
The Search When he returned from the congregation, he was very excited. He thought that he had finally found his mission in life. “Are you there, God? It is me, and I will find you," he said. If others in the past, and some even in the present time, could find Him, he would also do so. The day’s speaker had said---and the sacred books also told --- that once you had seen Him, you w...
“Having Faith” by Greg Gillis
“Are you there, God? It’s me, Bobby,” the boy of five years old said as he kneeled down beside his bed. “Mommy and daddy are yelling at each other again, and I really need you to ask them to stop. I know you can do it because my grandpa says you can do anything. I don’t like it when they yell. It makes me scared. I guess that’s all for now. Thanks for listening. Go...
“Are You There, God? It's Me, Henry” by Leslie Flemons
Are You there, God? It’s me, Henry. Listen, Big Guy. I don’t really know You. My mom keeps telling me to talk to You. I don’t know why. It’s not like You’d listen anyway. You’re probably up there wildin’ with the angels or something. I haven’t been to church in years. I bet You’re mad about that, huh? Are You even listening to me? Are You even real? I don’t know who I’m even talking to. Probably just a puff of air. Oh, well. If You’re there, God, please let me get some sleep. If You’re not, then…I’ll just get some sleeping pills. Good...

In fact, I´m n...
“The Encounter” by Pankaj C.
"Are you there, God? It's me, Joe!" “Hey, Joe. What’s up?” Joe sat frozen in his seat for a few seconds or it may have been minutes. Then he turned around and looked at the back seat of his car which he quickly realized was foolish. Of course, he was alone! He was headed home from his office, alone, the same as every day. He’d got stuck in traffic which see...
“Seeking God in the Wahiba Sands” by Matty Roberts
Are you there, God? It’s me; Gary. The one you seem to have forgotten about. I know you’ve always preferred a hands off approach, but I could really do with some of that divine intervention right now. Nothing epic, I don’t need you to turn water into wine. Although I wouldn’t turn down a small glass. Just a little bit of phone signal is all I'm asking for. Please. No bars. Useless prick. I think about launching my phone out of the window and into the desert. Maybe I should try Allah. This is his neck of the woods af...
“A Breeze Of New Age” by Sushant Pandey
"Hey God! are you there? it's me"....yes I am here you pig bastard, what do you want from me?... Why are you laughing bastard, just tell me what do you want? come school with me. Not again, how many times should I tell you that I am not a real god or something, I'm just an imagination of your mind! "I know that god but it's fun to go school with someone then going alone, it...
“Sent Him” by Justin R
“Are you there god? It’s me,” he grunted. Then he heard a voice, ‘who shall I send?’ the voice reverberated in his head. “I give up. I’m done.,” he panted. Not even enough strength to lift his chin off of the ground. “Send Lucifer for all I care. The devil, satan, beelzebub. Whatever you want to call him. I’ve given up on the life you’ve handed me on this god forsaken planet. The Drakes, Vikes, Jures an...

I am not able to walk like other kids , I see the sounds no one hears .I saw things no one sees. Why you made me like this God” Jay slowly walked down the road from school , he hears the bullies are still making fun of him as today he fell on ground in their first punch. He sat on ...
“Emi, not Emiko” by Rachel Kimoto
Are you there, God? It’s me, Emi. Emiko. I haven’t said that name out loud in awhile when I introduce myself. I obviously can’t lie to you, though; you know everything about me, least of all my full legal first name, Emiko. I don’t think I’m ashamed of who I am, but I’ve been having a hard time celebrating who I am lately. If that even makes sense. Whenever I meet new people, especially when it requires having my name w...
“Are You There? ” by Angel Vargas
“Are you there? God! It’s me!”These weren’t things I’d normally say, especially at three in the goddamn morning. Yet here I was, at that exact time on a summer Friday in the year 2000, standing just outside the beat-up, red metal door to my great grandmother’s midtown apartment. I was an easily irritated twenty year old, and I’d already had words with her asshole superintendent. Why, of all people, did she reach out to me? Did she know the humidity was keeping me awake tonight while I peeled myself off my couch for glass...
