My “Privileged Perch” and the Power of Prayer …

The internet, not unlike my “privileged perch” in my dream under the Hunter’s Moon, provides me with a new perspective: it lets me know that I am, in fact, a part of something “bigger and more profound” than just me. The internet – specifically blogs of other bloggers – gives me a greater appreciation for my fellow humans inhabiting this amazing planet, third rock from the sun.

I see, that while I must personally deal with my own issues firsthand, I can still “listen” – read the stories of others via their blogs – to others and keep them in my prayers:

Gabrielle, a talented artist currently residing in New Zealand, struggles to make a work connection and deal with the new recruiting norms in the this day and age where technology reigns supreme. She does this, while taking time out to look in on an ailing elderly neighbor who is currently in the hospital.

Azaad, an aspiring accountant and college student, from India, struggles with passing exams and regrouping to find the courage to try again after a partially failed first pass attempt.

Paul, a talented photographer -- and proud father -- currently residing in the state of Utah, in the U.S., prepares for an important gallery showing, while making an equally important reconnection in his love life.

So as each of these -- and other individuals [My Dad who is trying to get very high cholesterol numbers back down; My friend Eileen, and her husband, who are trying to grow their beautiful little family; My friend Kathy, who is grappling with issues regarding the health of her young son; My friend Monica, who is searching for a better job and love] -- enter into my mind throughout my busy day … or sometimes in quiet moments, late at night, as I wait for sleep to hopefully arrive: I offer up a little prayer for each of them. I pray that they will find peace, joy, and prosperity (their own versions of success) in their own lives. It may seem silly, but I am a firm believer in the power of prayer. I’ve witnessed too many little, and BIG, miracles in my own life, and in the lives of those around me, not to be!

And even if I feel “unworthy” at times – which is quite a bit these past few weeks – I know that God, the Creator, still listens to me … hears me. Maybe, He listens more when we take a moment out of our own busy lives to pray for the needs of others?

PJP (Peace, Joy & Prosperity) to you!

God Bless!

P.S. If you have any special needs: let me know and I’ll pray for you too – might as well put my insomnia to good use. : )
