A Note to Contributors

I love the way this blog has grown and how so many wonderful people are part of the team. Thank you all so much.

I have two requests. Housecleaning type of things.

1) Please try to title your posts with something specific "Pray for a Little Boy Who Fell Down a Well"; "Prayer needed for Baby Born Too Early"; "Family of Ill Child needs our Prayers" - you get the idea. This way if someone is trying to locate a particular post in the archives - they are not all labeled "Prayer request" and "urgent prayer request". I have no problem including Urgent in the title. And in fact, you can use that as a label as well. I'm just trying to avoid having all our post titles be the same. Thanks.

2) Answered Prayers. I know that sometimes we don't know the answer to a prayer - especially if we are praying for the needs of someone else - and that sometimes it takes a long time to recognize that a prayer has been answered. I, also know we've gotten a lot of posts that do address answered prayers - and that is fantastic (it's the point of the blog after all). But for all you contributors - if you could occasionally go through the prayer requests you've made and see if there has been an answer to that request - and then tell us about it - so we can all praise God with you, I'd appreciate it.

The Gospel says that "one came back" and thanked God. We want to make that "many came back" and thanked God.

Thanks to all of you who have helped to make this endeavor what it is!

And thanks to Esther for the cute graphic!

Thanks for the tips Chris. Good idea of going back to see if the prayers were answered.
The graphic looks good here!

Thank you, Christine! I do appreciate this, and especially the point to post answered prayers so we can all joyfully thank God! Love it!

Esther, it sure does!
