A practice run on this whole PRAYER business
Okay, so I'm not very good at this whole praying thing but with all the support and encouragement I've gotten from the blogosphere, I want to give it a try. Written prayer's count, don't they? My thoughts are so much clearer when I write.
Saturday morning prayer
Dear God, I don't know who or what or where you are, but I pray to find and take the leap of faith that will lead me to believe. I thank you for so many things in my life--a stunning fall day, a delicious bowl of oatmeal, my foray (or your guidance?) into the blogging world and the many many supportive people out there. I pray for PG and the work she is doing, because I promised her she'd be my first prayer of the day. :-) God, I pray that I will grow in my understanding and acceptance of myself, my situation, and the world around me. I pray very hard for S and the work he is doing. Please, please help him and support him. He is trying and we have both been hurt very much during this process. We could use a stretch of time full of successes, not failures. I pray for all my family and friends, including, of course, my "digital" friends, for their safety, well-being and happiness. I ask this without any knowledge or understanding of what I'm doing, but with fear and hope that you will. Thanks God. And thanks, bloggers, for giving me a space to try this out.
