Can a website be a prayer concern? In this case, yes!
If you read this blog regularly you probably already know we have been having some issues accessing the site. If my information is correct, the public side of the site has almost always been available. However, the back side is where I create the posts you see. And it is the backside that has been causing a problem for the past 5-6 weeks.
This post should serve as two things. First, as an explanation (apology?) for the hit-and-miss posting schedule. There is a planned schedule for posts and I try to stay with that even when I have a team out of the country. People tend to stay more engaged if there is a dependable, predictable posting pattern.
Second, prayer is going to be the best answer. There are dedicated, talented, and professional people who are working to get to the cause of the problem. It’s better than it was two weeks ago. However, just this morning I was briefly unable to log on to the backside of the site.
So let me put all of this together in something that might make sense. Scripture tells us if we lack wisdom we can ask God for it. You might think that was never intended to cover tweaking a website.
Let me ask about some other ministry tools. Is teaching a discipleship tool? Should we pray for teachers in our churches? How many other tools and/or resources do we use for ministry purposes? Does your church use vans or buses? What if one suddenly needs repair and funds are not on hand to cover the repair job? The church should pray about that. I think you get the idea.
So the insight for prayer is wisdom. Please ask the Father to give wisdom to those trying to solve the problem. That is not me! I might be able to share a devotional thought or a mission update, but what the site needs is way out of my league. Thanks in advance for your prayers. I’ll let you know how things go.
Soli Doe Gloria!
