It was just an Idea that turned into an advocacy. Dfish pitched the Idea to me of having a prayer blog brigade for the coming 2010 Philippine Presidential election. Before I even read his proposal on my blog entry, Kengkay, Utoy, IFM, Amor, and Chuvaness has readily showed interest in the project. It was too late to back out from this noble project because even before it started there is already a handful of people who are willing to join this noble cause. So here it is, the fruit of our brainstorming: The Blog Prayer Brigade for the future election of the 2010 President of the Philippines. This is not only for Christians but also for Moslems, Buddhists and other religions (except of course for atheists and those trying hard wannabes out there who deny the concept of spirituality, this is not for you! haha). So how can we participate in this project?
Pure and simple. Just write and compose a short or long prayer and then publish it on your blog together with the rules which you will copy below and paste on your blog verbatim (word for word).
The Prayer can be written and be in multimedia form. Here is my own prayer for the coming elections.
Romuald Matthieson: a.k.a. "bluepanjeet" has been writing in cyber space since 2005. In 2006, he jump-started his Catholic blogging a few years before the Catholic Church utilized social networks and blogs in spreading the Gospel. In 2007, in response to a realization of the growing need for Catholic Bloggers online, he officially launched his own self-hosted Catholic blog and called it "On The Wings Of My Dream" or simply OTWOMD which is a metaphor of his favorite psalm in the Bible, Psalm 63. Since then he has been blogging, (and sometimes podcasting) for the Catholic Church using his enthusiasm in the New Media, his inclination on visual and digital arts, his passion for the written word and his love for the Catholic Church.
