I wrote a prayer for today's service, and have written a couple others. When Brad (the pastor) won't be there, the elder "on duty" does the Prayers of the People, or the "long prayer" as it has been called.
I found I like writing this prayer. It feels like writing a Psalm. I remember in high school I took "Bible as Literature" and we had to write a Psalm when we were studying the Psalms. That was a good class. I went to a public high school and it was interesting to take a class that was all about the Bible.
