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.”

    I like that prayer. That’s it…I too should be doing something else!

    aww…. you’re taking your stats class? good for you, Klint!

    oh and i believe blanket prayers are just wonderful as long as your heart’s intention is to truly prayer for these people and not just to make it faster. i think there’s a lot of power in blanket prayers because umm… well, God knows everything we want to pray for and He also know what the blanket is for as well.
