I did not have a year like 2020 in mind when I wrote my 2013 book WEAVING PRAYER INTO THE TAPESTRY OF LIFE. I am thinking about doing an update after this blockbuster of a year is finally over. But in the meantime, I am hearing that some folk are finding real help there in dealing with what 2020 keeps dishing up. In the Introduction, I said that most books, once you have read the last page, can be put on the shelf or passed on to someone else. “But this book wants to hang around and be used. It would like to be a friendly companion to help you connect with
God about the living of your life as you weave your personal life tapestry.” In 2020, one might want heartily to pray and just not know where to start. Two letters came in my mail on the same day recently thanking me for all of the help this book had provided the writers in weaving prayer into their 2020 life tapestry. Each chapter is concluded with a series of what I call “prayer prompts” that are starting places for your prayers. I still use them, but in combination with some other resources. I was inspired to look more seriously afresh, and found they still work. If you have a copy, they are worth a try in this incredibly challenging season of life tapestry weaving. If you don’t, the church library may have some copies, or there is always Amazon! 2020 just keeps on being one of those times when if you ever need to pray, it is now!
