Dear God:

Every single evening
As I'm lying here in bed,
This tiny little Prayer
Keeps running through my head:

God bless all my family
Wherever they may be,
Keep them warm
And safe from harm
For they're so close to me.

And God, there is one more thing
I wish that you could do;
Hope you don't mind me asking,
Please bless my computer too.

Now I know that it's unusual
To Bless a motherboard,
But listen just a second
While I explain it to you, Lord.

You see, that little metal box
Holds more than odds and ends;
Inside those small compartments
Rest so many of my friends.

I know so much about them
By the kindness that they give,
And this little scrap of metal
Takes me in to where they live.

By faith is how I know them
Much the same as you.
We share in what life brings us
And from that our friendships grew.

Please take an extra minute
From your duties up above,
To bless those in my address book
That's filled with so much love.

Wherever else this prayer may reach
To each and every friend,
Bless each e-mail in box
And each person who hits 'send'.

When you update your Heavenly list
On your own Great CD-ROM,
Bless everyone who says this prayer
Sent up to GOD.Com

Tisha,
I was just reading through your blog and you seem like the perfect person for me to ask a quick question to. I recently saw some research that showed Walmart prices in Arkansas are signficantly higher than what I'm paying in TX Walmarts for the exact same items - like $15-$20 a week more. I'm curious if that is something you or your followers would care about? Are you expect to pay that much more for groceries just because you don't live in TX?

Sweet, sweet, sweet!
Reminds me of my friend's daughter, who was confused as to the difference between God and Jesus, and my friend couldn't help. The daughter then said" I know, I'll log onto God.com, he's bound to have a website and I'll ask him there"!!
