Why This Blog?

How often do we ask God for something? Often, I suspect. And sometimes the things are little (please let the child throw up in the toilet this time) and sometimes they are big (please let him have survived the accident). And sometimes the answer is yes and sometimes the answer is no. Sometimes the answer is "later" and sometimes we don't know what the answer is at all.

But when we do get an answer how often do we go back and say - Hey thanks for listening and answering my prayer, God. Probably not quite as often as we request things. (though probably more so on the big things)

I'd like this blog to be a place where people can post prayer requests - and therefore allow others to pray for your intentions but also (and maybe more importantly) a place to post Answered Prayers.

Sometimes prayers are answered in unusual ways. And sharing this with others will allow us to reflect on the way that God does work in our lives.

So - please, join me in this endeavor.

If someone wants to be a contributor - please comment and let me know. If you just want to post once or twice and not be an official contributor, you can post your information in the comments and I'll create a post for you.
