Dearest Prayer Team,
I have created this space so that you will have a place to share your thoughts and feelings with each other. If you have something you would like to send out to the entire group, you can send it to me at email@example.com and I will post it for you here. This way we will avoid overcrowding everyone’s email inboxes, which seems to be an issue.
I have a short story to share. Today I met with my computer guy Josh, (nice guy) to help me work out some computer problems. While working Josh showed me a way to activate a dictation function so that I can speak, rather than type. I followed his instruction and hit the function button twice, and on came a little microphone and so I spoke. I started to dictate the first sentence above, regarding the purpose of this site. When I finished speaking, I hit return and the words I spoke came up on the screen. “How incredible is that?” I thought. “Let me try that again,” and so I hit the function button twice, and after the little microphone came up on the screen, I continued speaking the first sentence. When I finished I hit return. To our surprise, what came up on the screen was this: Hello Dan.
Josh looked at me and I looked at him. No one had said Dan or hello! Josh couldn’t believe it, but I’m wasn’t totally surprised. The kids can do these things. I don’t know how, but I know they can.
My hope is that you will all begin using the comment command to create an active dialogue with other members of The Prayer Registry, and that you will send me whatever stories you would like me to post. You can even send me photos with your stories, because I can add photos too.
