I have enjoyed posting weekly updates on the blog. But I’ve felt the need to integrate my hobbies into my life. If a hobby is cut off from other parts of life, it will more likely be discarded during difficulties.
Amid the academics in the seminary, I usually find time to pray, usually with the religious community and sometimes by myself. Prayer has kept me sane during the hectic semester.
My prayer intentions to God have been for personal needs and for groups and other people I had met over the years.
But recently, I have thought: Is there people who need someone to pray for their loved ones, their colleagues, and even their own challenges? Maybe if I post these prayer requests, other people will take them up and pray for them. If we pray for each other, we lift each other and our needs to God.
If you have any prayer requests, send to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: Monthly Prayer Request. I will post them on the first Wednesday of the month and update the list throughout the month. You will find the list by clicking on the Monthly Prayer Request link at the top of the menu. For now, I’ll cap the list at 10 because I want to concentrate my efforts on a small list. At the start of the month, I’ll wipe the slate clean and start again.
Let’s pray for one another.
