Blog Your Blessings : Computers

I was happy to find this prayer about computers. For the oppressed, computers are a way to find and share freedom and truth. For the homebound, computers are a lifeline to the outside world and a social network. For the shy and phobic, it is a tool for communication and growth. For me, it is an outlet for creativity and the way I make my living. We are all blessed by computers.


Prayer for my time on the computer

Gracious God,
even in the wondrous tangle of wires and connections,
you make yourself known.

May my computer be more than a machine of information
and become an altar on which I am able to offer my thanks
for the abundance of gifts in this richly textured world.

As I scan through images, as I learn and explore,
as I create and produce, bring my soul to the awareness that
I am not alone in this vast world of human energy.

Fill me with that energy and give me a heart of gratitude.

Amen

A blessing for computers?

Your thoughts, the image, and the prayer are wonderful.

I have a friend who speculates that blogs create for us the opportunity to be our best selves to the rest of the world. We can express ourselves thoughtfully after reflection and connect in meaningful ways because interaction is stripped of the stresses of looking a certain way, being in a certain place, spending money, etc. I think he has a fair point.

Blog Your Blessings and your post speak to his point wonderfully. God bless!

They are perhaps the greatest blessing we have over health food and shelter. I am lost without mine.

Happy BYB Sunday and have a good week.

As a professional technician, the concept of the "mixed blessing" could be seen here... more often than not to me, I only see the "downside"... the broken, the misused, and the complaints from end-users... but realistically, I know in my heart that computer are a blessing...

...even when I've been hip-deep in troubles because of them. :)

I agree that computers are a blessing! BUT I still miss those letters in the US Postal service --probably because I had 40 pen pals when I was growing up and as an adult wrote often to others too.

Come and read about my blessing.
