Blanket Prayer?

It’s late.  I haven’t posted in quite a while!  I’m ok with that though. 🙂 

I just finished a long statistics homework assignment – strangely enough I began to understand it!?!  As I’m still sitting here in my basement (I should be in bed) I’m “stalking” people via facebook; and its got me wondering.  Is there such a thing as a “blanket prayer” and, if so, is it ok?

I’m thinking about all the different volunteers, church staff members, student minsitry staff, interns, students, parents and others that I’ve had the opportunity to do life with throughout the past few years (almost 6!) at Westside.  There’s an amazing reel of faces, names, conversations, and memories flickering past my minds eye faster than I can keep up with.

Humbly, my blanket prayer is “Father, hold us close.  Wherever we’re at, whatever life has brought us to, hold us close.  Water planted seeds; let new growth burst forth.  May we rest solely with you, set our hope fully on you, and trust courageously in you.”
