So, I’m Eric Mathews, and I enjoy reading Christian prayers, finding related scriptures, and adding an image that ties everything together. Some posts work better than others, but at least this keeps me out of trouble.
My intention is to provide a resource of prayers that have been crafted through the centuries from an variety of voices and traditions. I try to follow the church calendar from Advent through Easter and beyond through “ordinary time” while also mixing in prayers related to the Sunday sermon or whatever else I find meaningful. My hope is that you might re-pray these, considering the interactions between the prayer, verse and image. Suggestions and comments are always welcome.
The pictures are largely found using google images or unsplash. 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.
I’m originally from NW FL, now residing in SE MA with my wife and teenage daughters, and working in the medical device industry. My interests include modern classical and jazz music, homeless ministry, English football, discipleship groups, and red wine, not necessarily in that order.
