I’m thrilled to be guest-posting today over at the blog of the very smart and prolific Dianna E. Anderson for her series “Account and Countenance”.
My mother has always prayed strangely specific prayers. And I do mean specific. For example, when reselling an item on ebay that she found at a thrift store: “Lord, I would really like to sell this dress for $20 more than I paid for it.” She also prays about everything; no problem or question is too small for God. She prays for cashiers she meets at the grocery store or Goodwill. I’m pretty sure she’s still praying for one of my ex-girlfriends. She’s always done this, as far back as I can remember.
