Prayer List

I will be retiring at the end of this week, and I think that one of the hardest things to get used to will be a changed personal prayer list.

Like many Christians, I pray silently by name for people who have particular needs such as serious illness. After this weekend, I will be dropping the names of parishioners as part of my separation process. I will leave these folks to the pastoral care of my successor.

Some names of family and friends will remain on my list, and no doubt others will be added with time. When I find a new place to worship, there will be new additions to my list. In a fallen world, there are always people to pray for.

But still, it will be a change. Like the vanishing of this blog into cyberspace. Yet God always has blessings in store.–J. Douglas Ousley
