A Sceptics Prayer

Is this a prayer a sceptic can pray? Some Christians would claim that a greater certainty, more leaning in trust, is required to be heard. I think this is valid though. I think God is keen to hear and constantly stoops to listen.

God, I don’t know whether you even exist. I’m a sceptic. I doubt. I think you may be only a myth. But I’m not certain (at least when I’m completely honest with myself). So if you do exist and you really did promise to reward all seekers, you must be hearing me now. So I hereby declare myself a seeker of the truth, whatever and wherever it is. I want to know the truth and live the truth. If you are the truth please help me.

By Peter Kreeft and quoted by D’Souza in the excellent book What’s So Great About Christianity.
