Sunday Evening Post: On a Wing and a Prayer

Since the inception of my blog —I have written over half a million words. An average book contains about 80K-100K words. So I’ve written about the equivalent of 5-6 books…or nearly the equivalent of Leo Tolstoy’s epic saga “War and Peace.”

There are times when I find myself having a love/hate relationship with blogging. In part, the feedback I receive from you through your engaging comments is part of what fuels and feeds my blogging journey.

This is my 980th post. I’ve written a lot about God and faith. I’ve also written numerous posts on the subject of work.

This makes sense. Terri and I both invest a lot into our work. We both spend a good chunk of our time working. We are both valued at work and both exhibit a strong work ethic. We actually enjoy work.

Another topic I’ve spent a lot of time writing about is prayer. Oftentimes, I publish a prayer as an actual post in and of itself. Prayer is at its core a continuing conversation with our Creator God.

Prayer isn’t simply a ritual we perform routinely a set number of times each day. To the contrary, the Apostle Paul encourages believers—followers of Jesus—to pray could continually. Prayer is an ongoing dialogue.

Here are 7 posts focusing on prayer that I’ve published on this blog over the years:

Prayer for the Unsheltered, Marginalized, & Exploited

Evening Prayer: Praying for Ukraine

A Prayer of Gratitude

Sunday Prayer | Fear is Not Our Guide

My Sunday Prayer | Praying for Afghanistan

My Monday Morning Cup | Living a Life Pleasing to the Lord Begins with Prayer

When Life Happens…and It Will…Pray.

I hope you enjoy revisiting these golden oldies on the subject of prayer.

The genies working behind the machine at WordPress recently informed me that I have attained over 1,000 WordPress followers. I think that’s pretty awesome. Thanks for continuing to read my posts. Please invite someone to join the conversation.

Today, I can’t help but think of the children of 9-11. Many of their parents simply woke up and went to work that fateful day and never came home. Remember, and don’t ever forget. Hug your loved ones tonight.

May the Lord, our God, bless you and may God continue to bless the United States of America.

  1. Wow! You have stellar numbers on your blog. And what’s so amazing is that you are making an impact for the Kingdom of God! I will check out the posts on prayer. Thank you for sharing those. And such a good point about the kids of 9/11. Some grew up missing a parent. 😢 I was thinking this morning how we as a country were so United. And now we are so divided. Very sad all the way around. Thanks again for the prayer posts.

  2. Thank you for your encouraging comments, Bridget. 9/11 is particularly somber for me today, albeit I am not 100% sure why. I remember before the attack that we were in the midst of a very politically divided time. And then, 9/11 happened.
    I look forward to hearing from you in regards to those prayer posts. I’ve thought about compiling them in a small book. Blessings. 🙏
