Sometimes I think that Bible software users pray more than the traditional book readers.

There are many unclear words and acronyms around without proper definition and some complex difficult-to-use tools, and the general uncertainty that whole thing might crash at any time.

What others do think?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Upon initial reading of your post, I at first disagreed, as I think there are too many distractions with a computer/device.

But then I think I detected a bit of humorous irony in your post; I certainly can identify with that! Big Smile  (Especially with Logos...)  Of course, given your between-the-lines thesis, Bible software users may use profanity more than traditional book readers, too. (Especially with Logos...)

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Not only does it improve prayer life, it also is useful in obtaining back rubs.  I have found that as my patience level declines and my poorly sanctified inner rantings rise, my saintly wife, silently comes up to me, rubs my shoulders and says, "Honey, does this help?"  This has been good for our marriage.

I am indebted to Logos.

1 Prayer is the soul's sincere desire,
uttered or unexpressed;
the motion of a hidden fire
that trembles in the breast.

2 Prayer is the simplest form of speech
that infant lips can try,
prayer the sublimest strains that reach
the Majesty on high.

3 Prayer is the Christian's vital breath,
the Christian's native air,
his watchword at the gates of death:
he enters heaven with prayer.

4 Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice,
returning from his ways;
while angels in their songs rejoice,
and cry, 'Behold, he prays!

The first verse is known to me as

"Prayer is the soul's sincere desire
Unuttered or expressed …"

Help me log on without fretting
Guide me, as I am interneting
Bless my downloading and uploading
Keep my browser from exploding
May my website be protected?
Let not my password be rejected
Keep my line always connected
And all my inputs be accepted
Please keep my entire program alive
And to remember to back up my hard drive
And protect my computer from crashing drive,
From a virus that would make it nesting hive

Amen

Be strong and courageous. . . for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.

Someone I used to work with always showed appreciation for the software. It sounded spiritual too. And frequent."Oh great!"

Well, John, could I share this in my Facebook timeline?

Should I mention your name or do you prefer to be anonymous?
