predictions and prayer

When you give up predictions, preferring to pray,
you exchange crystal balls for a God whose attention
is often distracted, preferring to play
in casinos, where gamblers are His type of menschen.

Inspired by an email from Karin:

While we are assessing our feelings (I suppose we have all been in CA too long) I would say that I oscillate between optimism and fear. For the most part, I have faith that things will turn out fine, and we will all be celebrating. But then I realize that the world is unfair and unpredictable, so it’s best to just pray and stop making predictions.
