I think I have discovered an exciting new way to pray: Pray your cell phone. Here’s how:
1. You have your cell phone set up so you can see your phone book with a single push of a button, don’t you? Do it.
2. Start with the person (or institution) at the top. Pray for God to bless them. Pray as long as you want. When you are ready to pray for the next person, just navigate down.
3. Try to finish up a single letter before you stop; that way, it’s easier to continue next time. For example, if you pray for everyone in your phone book whose name starts with C, then next time you want to pray you just jump down to the Ds.
I have had fun praying for my friends and family in this way as I walk or drive. Give it a try, and let me know how it works for you!
(This is actually the second use of my cell phone for prayer. The first is described here.)
