Well this is ridiculous, how am I supposed to get in contact with God to ask my question?

Chris: You just gotta pray?

Reece: Pray?

Chris: Yeah!

Reece: How do you Pray?

Chris: Well, usually people just close their eyes and just start talking.

Reece: Oh, I didn't know that. Thanks...

Umm, Chris,

Chris: Yes Reece,

Reece: Hypothetically speaking, let’s say you didn’t have a blinking function sewn into your head, and were unable close your eyes. Does that mean you can’t pray?

Chris: Sure you can, you can pray with you eyes open, and even without speaking out loud. You just start talking to God, and He’ll hear you.

Reece: Oh, right! Cool, thanks.

Just start talking... Well, here goes...

“Dear God, I have a question for you... so if you could just give me your phone number so I can contact you, that would be great. Thanks!”

Thanks Chris. All done. I left a message. See ya.
