Praying for the Prayer Guy

Updated on November 19, 2015

This is going to be a hard hub for me to write. It has been very easy for me to write about how to pray for so many things to help advance God’s kingdom. There is nothing more I want to see than revival to come to Maine, New England, and beyond. This is why I started this hub. In order for revival to come, we Christians need to be turning our attention to what God is doing. Then, once we have our attention there, start doing whatever it is that He is calling us to do. For me, it is prayer for His mission and to help others to see that prayer is vitally important to the mission. Important because it is God’s mission. We are just his tools to bring His hope and salvation to the world. That is why we need to pray for what we are doing for the mission, and pray for what others are doing for the mission.

Why this is a hard hub for me to write is because I’m asking you, my readers to pray for me. I’m breaking a hubpages rule by writing about myself. I think it is important to ask others to pray for you in your mission and I shouldn’t be an excepection. I’m asking you to pray for me as I take some time off from writing to take a course on writing on the internet. I mentioned before in this hub that I’m called to pray for God’s mission and to encourage others to pray as well. I believe that taking the time to help me improve my writing will only help achieve what God has called me to do. So, please pray for me as I take a timeout to spend time learning on how to write better for the web.

Even Jesus took time to pray and reconnect to His Father. Just think about all those times when he went away to pray. I believe that, Jesus, being the God-man, the man part, at least, needed to be an example to His disciples and for the world. I believe that Jesus was (and is) the perfect God and, also, the perfect man. Jesus took some “time off”. He told His disciples, for example, to “come...apart into a desert place, and rest for a while” - Mark 6:31. Jesus did this Himself - to pray. Hmmm, me, the Prayer Guy...guess that makes sense, yes?

Here’s a list of what I hope to get out of the class:

  • A better sense of what readers are looking for on the web and then how prayer can be a part of that for God’s mission.

  • To become better at writing and have a larger audience.

  • I want to be open to what God has for me during this season.

  • Time management. It is suggested that I schedule about 2-4 hours a week for four weeks to do this course.

The Cross and Baseball

Two of my favorite things to talk about.

Thanks for your prayers during this time. I believe that this is something that God wants me to do to better myself in this area. I’m sure that I will be writing better blogs in the future that will encourage folks to pray for God’s mission.

In the meantime, please pray, pray, and pray; early and often.
