Don’t pray for anything you’re willing to work for

This August 15 will be the 15-year anniversary of this blog.

Yesterday was the first time I’ve tried the Popeye’s chicken sandwich. That’s one solid sandwich and I can see why some folks may prefer it over Chick-fil-A. As for me, I just appreciate the two for what they are, two different but great chicken sandwiches. I will say Popeye’s sandwich is much more filling.

Don’t pray for anything you’re willing to work for.

Nearly half of men say they do most of the homeschooling. Three-percent of women agree.

As a Star Wars fan, I like that thought of this alternate reality of Luke falling to the dark side to rule with is father and Leia being trained as a Jedi by Yoda. Here’s the source of the digital artwork.

In Beverly Hills Cops III, Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) cuts in front of George Lucus.

    “Don’t pray for anything you’re willing to work for”
    Further explanation please

      Several things come to mind. For instance, don’t pray for good grades unless you are willing to work for them by putting forth the effort. Don’t pray for patience and be unwilling to go through experiences that will teach you patience. It’s a bit like the whole “teach a man to fish” sorta thing. Some folks simply want God to grant them the ability to choose the correct answers on a test without any of the work of studying. Some folks just want to be granted patience in an instance and not have to work through the lessons on learning how to be patient.

      I thought the line was rather self-explanatory, and obviously I’m wrong, I’d like to know how you may have interpreted it upon first inspection.

        I can’t speak for anonymous but I thought the same thing that David Bryant wrote. The way you wrote it sounds as if you shouldn’t pray for those things you should work for yourself. Or, if you’re willing to work for it there’s no need to pray. I think the intent of your explanation follows more closely with what David said. A small matter of semantics I think!

    What is the context of the boy with the raised hammer photo from yesterday?

    • Geeding says:

      I’m not really sure, I think it has to do something with a miners strike in Turkey. I just posted it because it caught my attention and I thought it was unique. I wasn’t trying to convey any sort of symbolic message or anything.

    Should it have read “Don’t pray for anything you’re UNWILLING to work for.”
