A Blogger's Prayer

Just found this marvellous prayer by Stephen Cuyos. Must remember to pray this and to keep this in mind.

SO COMPASSIONATE, SO FAITHFUL, SO LOVING
You are Our Father,
We ask You to increase our faith and our love for You
that we may use blogging as an instrument to fulfill Your purposes.
May we become bloggers of truth and promoters of peace.
Help us to be steadfast in our Christian commitment
that visitors may find in our blogs a source of encouragement and inspiration.
Give us strength to proclaim Your word
that we may play our part in breaking down the walls of hostility in the world
and use our blogs to strengthen the bonds of friendship, solidarity and love.


MAKE OUR HEARTS MEEK AND HUMBLE,
that we may treat our readers as friends, not as unique hits,
that we may strive to change ourselves for the better more often than we pimp our site templates,
that we may find more time to ease the pain of someone in our own home than to reply to comments left by strangers,
that we may interact with our next door neighbors as often as we chat with our blogrolled friends,
that we may be more concerned about helping the less privileged than about the number of subscribers to our RSS feeds.
Deliver us, Father, from spams and viruses, from pride and selfishness, and from the temptation to replicate images without permission and copy ideas without crediting the original authors.
May we always be united as a network of bloggers and friends working together in Your name. May our blogs lead us closer to You.
We ask all these through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
