Preacher's Corner for Non-Christians and Christians alike. Today is how to pray

Updated on September 6, 2013

Life is cool let us live it.
Life is cool let us live it. | Source

I am a real preacher man.

This is a piece that I wrote and did not publish because it is so strange.

But my boy is having trouble tonight -- seems like nightmares. Temperature is fine and I examined and held and walked him around in my arms -- and nothing wrong. That don't matter. It is still my job to be up and listening to his condition. So he and mom are sleeping well at the moment. And that gave me time to read this piece again.

I think you may find this unsettling. But I think it might evoke.


I preach every Sunday. And my phone rings during the week. People do not call. Because they know what I will say. Even atheists know our Trinity. Let me give you our second "Eric's" trinity.

Pray baby pray.

I mean pray. I do not mean pray to. Let that sink in, do not pray to. Pray for. Let that sink in pray for. Understand me. Do not pray to, pray for.

Can you imagine a world where every one sat down, breathed deep and prayed for everyone else.

I can because I live it.

Old Jimmy Buffet sang a song.

This watch is never wrong. It is time to pray.

Wonderful Jesus taught us how to pray. But I give you instructions.

We do thusly:

We pray for me.

We pray for we.

And we pray for thee.

Breathe in and Breathe out. This is good.

Allow me to sermonize

You know what? You love me. I am such a fool sometimes I love me.

Isn't that so cool. You love you, and I love you. Are we not just fools?

So bow your head and pray for me --- I mean you. Just say to yourself, I love me. What a great way to start "Eric's Trinity"

Now while you do this pray for we. I am just a slob and so are you, so we are sisters in slobness. I like it and I like you.

Now look around and see what you see and pray for that. That is the "thee".

Me I figure my fish are worth praying for.

Now it is time to do a little Jig

Oh yeah oh ya oh yipee and yahoo.

Now what you do is jump up and clap your hands and then put them in the air. And you do a little jig and you shout a little shout. Now we be praying.

I am just a country boy with no happy big city joy. I walk dirt roads and stand in awe of spiderwebs. I do not know this miracle of prayer.

I am poor of mind and poor or spirit and poor of love ------ Bullwhackey I got you babe.

Each other is enough: Our own selves is good enough.

      Dear MsDora --- I have sent out the following missive. Of course it must be their choice. Oh I think you would love to hear from any of them. This would be so cool.

      I have a fine Christian friend in an island called Saint Kitts

      I have told her of our great congregation.

      Is there anyone who would write her and explain our fellowship from your perspective.

      Also just hit reply so I can update our list.

      Here is the beauty for the day.

      No one is ever alone unless they choose to be. Let that sink in. Jesus knows we are dumb dumbs but he does not turn his back on us. But we do to him. That is crazy. Turn around today and turn toward Him. Amen

      Wow MsDora --- that is so cool. My people do not engage in this sort of way. They are shy Vietnamese youth or ancient Vietnamese refugees. With extremely busy parents in between.

      But wouldn't it be cool if I could get them too interact with you. My mind has fireworks going off. Maybe you are just the spark they need. I will visit your profile to day. But I might want a more witnessing request to forward on.

      Thank you -- that is exciting.

      I may be just a little too inquisitive, but I'd like to hear from some members in your congregation.

      Once we die to ourselves we no longer can be dead to others.
