So, I’m Eric Mathews, and I enjoy reading Christian prayers and finding related scriptures, then adding an image that ties everything together. The purpose of this blog is to provide a resource of prayers that have been crafted throughout the centuries from an abundance of voices and traditions. My hope is that you might re-pray these, considering the interactions between the prayer, verse and image. Suggestions and comments are always welcome.
Reading through the various prayer traditions within the Christian faith has been enlightening, as I come from a “low church” background. I try to follow the church calendar from Advent through Easter and beyond through “ordinary time” while mixing in prayer reflections from the Sunday sermon or whatever else I find meaningful.
The pictures are largely found using google images. I try to make sure they are labeled for reuse or are in the public domain. If I’ve used a source or image inappropriately, please let me know and I will make corrections.
Originally from NW FL, I now reside in SE MA. I have a wife and two teenage daughters and work in the medical device industry. My interests include classical music, homeless ministry, English football, small groups, and red wine, not necessarily in that order.
