i’ll pray for you (that is, if i remember)

Last night, Libby told me something that I didn’t know about her…

She said that if she tells someone she will pray for them, she prays for them RIGHT AWAY – because she knows herself and she might not think of it later. I though that was brilliant.

I get so annoyed with myself when I tell someone I’ll pray for them and then forget. How lame?

I’ve realized lately that it can be so refreshing to pray aloud with friends. Why are we so hesitant to pray with and for each other in the everyday circumstance of life?

monday prayer

may i not lose sight of your coming glory

one clear choice

Here is the prayer God gave me today…

God, give me one clear choice – that is awesome.  And help me to follow.  Amen.

This was spurred on by two things:

  1.  A breakfast meeting with Jon (who totally spurs me on, & maybe instigates a bit too).
  2. And by the lyrics of James Blunt.  (God can work mysteriously, right?)

On Blunt’s new album there’s a song called “Same Mistake“.  I don’t completely understand the song, and I don’t necessarily think it’s theological.  But the lyrics do capture my prayer to God right now…

I’m not calling for a second chance,
I’m screaming at the top of my voice.
Give me reason but don’t give me choice.
‘Cause I’ll just make the same mistake again.

I'm a family man at heart. I admit my world revolves around my wife Libby and our 3 hooligans...Eli, Eden and Silas. They are easy to love. I'm trying to learn to love the rest of you. I also like to ask questions.
