Jabez called out to the God of Israel: “If only You would bless me, extend my border, let Your hand be with me, and keep me from harm, so that I will not cause any pain.” And God granted his request. 1 Chronicles 4.10
The Blogger’s Prayer
The blogger called out to the God of Israel:
Please bless me, Lord, with uplifting material, edifying words, and legal images.
Lord, expand my readership; increase my Google stats; broaden my platform; and, grow my brand.
Holy Spirit, keep Your hand on mine as I put fingers to keyboard.
Father God, protect me from negative comments, haters, bashers, and teach me to take no offense, when unkind words are hurled.
And, most of all, O Lord, may my words and thoughts encourage others; build them up; inspire them; and, never, ever cause them hurt, shame, the feeling of less-than, or blame.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray, amen.
In all honesty, I don’t care one whit about readership count or brand because that is not why I write. My blog is not a source of income at this time (perhaps, one day?). I love writing and sharing and I have found blogging to be the great remedy for my pen!
