    Please pray for my friend’s unborn grandchild. The drs are concerned there are severe problems . Lord have mercy.

  2. Reuben says:

    For sure, Nonnie

    If you can believe it, I am Vestry of our Anglican church. I guess that is answered prayer, so I figured I would mention it here.

  3. Reuben, if congratulations are in order – CONGRATULATIONS!!

    I have a question, and I may have this out of order. I thought you said that you were preparing to go through the church’s catechism classes sometime in the near future. How is it they put you in leadership before the classes?

    I only ask because you seemed somewhat reluctant to take the position.

    Nonnie, praying.

    Praying, Nonnie.

    Reuben…praying and celebrating as God works through you!

  6. Reuben says:


    The congregation, existing Vestry, and Priest saw fit to overlook the fact that I was not “confirmed” in the church. I am starting the catechism classes this month. The vote was 100%.

  8. Nonnie says:

    Reuben, I’m rejoicing to see God’s gifts in you continuing to be used.

  9. Sarah says:

    I’m really liking this prayer…praying it again this morning.

  10. I never understand any of these Brueggemann prayers. Who is he praying too?

    Perhaps that is the sign of a good prayer – it can be used by anybody to pray to their own gods.

  11. Sarah says:

    Thanks, MLD. Nice to know the snarky continues on to the prayer thread. I’m off to prepare for a trip to NM, knowing full well who I am praying to..even in this prayer.

  12. That wasn’t snarky at all – I have not seen in one of these Brueggemann prayers any reference to Jesus, or anything that indicates at all that they are Christian prayers. Not that they can’t be prayed by Christians.

    But I will move along.

  13. Nonnie says:

    Praying for you Sarah, as you go visit your family in NM.

  14. Michael says:

    If you can’t recognize the God of the Bible in these prayers I will pray that you get to know Him better..

  15. catherine says:

    Praying for you Sarah as you make your way here…I too find comfort in these prayers and know to Whom they are addressed…

  16. from this corner says:

    FWIW, perhaps MLD does have a point – maybe not appropriate here, but it is a valid point, i think
    we who know God through our redemption in Christ Jesus hit the ground running as we read Brueggemann, but the prayer is not evangelistic in pointing the seeker to the Savior – it easily could be read by a non-believer, who’d then walk away thinking, perhaps, that he understood our Faith?

    have an interview for an admin position at ups tomorrow morning, prayers appreciated.

  18. London says:

    How’d it go Jlo?

  19. jlo says:

    I think it went well. They asked a lot of question (3 people panel) and they took a ton of notes. So God willing this could be the one. I should hear back by the middle of next week.
