I've decided to give up on the World magazine blog contest. I felt myself leading with my ego and that I'm struggling to get interested in current events on a regular basis. Also, the strictures of their format weren't all that fun.
I'd like to develop my prayer life a bit better, and this post from Tim Plett struck a cord; here's the last paragraph.
It struck me this morning that it would be a good if there would be a place where bloggers could post their prayers--where we needs could be published--where bloggers could actually pray together--if cyber praying is in fact a prayer meeting. It would, however, need to be at a blog with a bigger audience than mine. But it would seem good to me. If it seems good to the Holy Spirit perhaps it will happen.
Your wish is my command; presenting The Prayer Blog. I'm starting out by putting out prayer concerns in different buckets (World, National, Church, Missions/Evangelism, Personal) and having people comment in extra prayer requests.
I'm more than open to suggestions and co-bloggers; I'm using Blogger for this, for it allows for multiple bloggers better than my current Typepad account. I'd like quite a few people to share the load of running that site.
