(I have a prayer request at the end of this article)
I’m awake! I’m awake!
Of course I am… it’s time to get ready to fly to Ft. Myers, Florida. Tomorrow morning I’m speaking at Porn and Pancakes with Craig and J.R. My schedule for the next several weeks is hectic.

I’ll be logging a lot of frequent-flyer miles, and bringing my iPhone. I want to meet as many people as I can, take your photo so I remember you, and add you to my iPhone’s address book.
Come with a smile!
I’d like those of you who pray to agree with me in this request, and to pray with me for some of these things when you remember to do so:
God, I thank you SO MUCH for the opportunity to travel and speak with your sons and daughters about this very important issue. I ask that you keep reminding me that YOU are merciful and full of grace, and that transforming a wretch like me is a miracle. Using me in the manner in which you’ve used me is humbling. Please remind me to stay in that place of humility. You know me, God. I have a HUGE ego, God, and have a tendency to sometimes want to take credit for things that have nothing to do with me and everything to do with you. Please help me break that. I’d ask you to just break it for me but I realize it’s something you’re happy to provide assistance with, but much of the work has to be done on my end.
I’d also like to ask for health. Flying around the country is something that often times results in colds. I hate colds. I run to the grocery store for NyQuil and DayQuil at every sniffle. Please, I ask, help me to stay away from bugs and germs.
I also ask that you open hearts to receive the message being presented at these events. You’ve given all of us free will to do as we please, but sometimes our free will hurts others, and ourselves, much more than we realize. I want those who listen to know that none of us are trying to take away rights or free will, we just want people to have more knowledge about all sides, all perspectives, of the issue of pornography. It’s an issue that is huge and it’s a big blue elephant that we no longer want the church to ignore.
Be with all of us. Bless every speaker and every listener. I love you.
