A Blogger’s Prayer

Heavenly Father:

I want to thank you for helping me to find and participate in the LDS web log community known as the Bloggernacle. I also thank you for the many outstanding people I have been able to interact with. I usually enjoy this little hobby, and I hope you approve.

There are a few people here who have problems of one type or another. Some have had a crisis of faith, others have had some bad experiences. There are a few who have suffered tremendous loss of some kind. I also know of those who are at very important stages of life, and are having to make difficult decisions. Please bless them with thy spirit that they may have the peace, comfort, and understanding that they seek.

I hope that I can gain some self-improvement through my participation here. If there are people here that I can benefit from interacting with, will you please lead me to them. And grant me the humility to listen and learn from them. Please help me as I read, write and study to gain increased faith and understanding.

If there is anyone who can benefit from interacting with me, please help our paths cross. And bless me that I can say the right things in the right way to help in some way.

I have discussed many things here in a public setting. I have speculated on gospel topics. I have discussed the culture of the church based on my own opinions and observations. I am sorry if I have offended thee in any way. If I have written anything that has offended, hurt or confused anyone will you somehow mend the damage I have caused? Please forgive me for the many errors in my posts and comments. Please magnify any of the good I might have done.

I want this experience to be good for me and for anyone I come in contact with. Please inspire and direct my words that that they may be consistent with thy will and benefit others. I love thee very much.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

    This pretty much sums it up, brother.

    Thanks everyone.

    I was worried that maybe some would think this was an irreverent thing to do. I was also concerned that some would think I had made a little rameumptum (sp?) here and had offered a vain prayer.

    That was sweet, Eric, and no, I don’t think it’s at all vain.
