What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Archers this is not The End

Did you really think that I'd come back after the events and tell you guys "Well done, now go oil your bows and wrap them in fine linen and hide them away."


Now that you know you have this skill, and I know that you know, and you know that I know that you know, I'm going to be calling on you more often.  Don't make that face. 

Right now, I know that Christopher and his family would love some prayer for restored health, for rest, and for refreshment.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Wayne and his family would welcome prayers for that too. 

And you could pray for the staff of the Borders  too, where they had a sell-out situation and ran out of books.
Ooh, that could sting the organizer badly. Hopefully not, but praying for the clerks and staff at the store would be nice, it's not good to run out of product.

Product=Sales. Sales are good. People who come to buy stuff at a store that advertised it and the store doesn't have it when they get there are prone to be angry, and angry people are not the kind of customers that any store wants.

Father, Please restore the Hopper family. I don't know what health issues they might be dealing with, but having anyone in a family sick is quite a drag on moral. So also God protect them from discouragement, and help them keep and eternal perspective. I also ask that you would grant this book sales, and for the times where it sells out, people would order it. Not just make a big fuss.

Is the new contest starting soon?
