New Prayers for the 21st Century

If you need to give an important demo or keynote, use this prayer:

Prayer to the Demo God

Recited before an important demo in a big meeting:

Dearly beloved, we are gathered together here in the sight of God, and in the face of this Congregation

As we gather here in the harbor of your safety

We ask that you will strengthen us and our demo, restore us and our backups with your love. 

Lord, would fill us with your peace so that as we and our code can journey onward 

We would pour out a successful demo with grace to others. 

We ask that our souls would catch the wind of your spirit so that our product would take its promises to all the earth.


Prayer for safety of sending email
Recited before sending an important email, file or DocuSign:

May it be Your will, Lord, our God and the God of our ancestors, that You lead this email toward peace, guide its footsteps toward peace, that it is supported in peace, and make it reach it’s desired destination intact.

May You rescue it and protect it from the hand of every foe and ambush, from cyber-criminals and wild malware on the trip, and from all manner of punishments that assemble to come to earth.

May You send it blessing in your handiwork, and grant it grace, kindness, and mercy in Your eyes and in the eyes of all who see it.

May You hear the sound of our humble request because You are God Who hears prayer requests. Blessed are You, Lord, Who hears prayer.


Prayer for a good vacation
Recited before going on vacation:

God, our heavenly Father, whose glory fills the whole creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go: preserve those who travel on this vacation to Turks & Caicos; surround them with your loving care; protect them from every danger; and bring them in safety to their journey’s end;

Please make the sunshine not too hot, to protect their skin

Please make the food as tasty as possible

Please guide the fish to the lures

Please let the neighbors be quiet in the morning, and the sounds of babes be silenced
Please let no sand get stuck in any crevice or crack unwanted

Please let all thy water drain from our ears, and back into the ocean

lease let our bathing suits dry gloriously in the air you have bestowed upon us

Please let our minds relax, our bodies recharge, and our spirits rejoice

Please let our car take us only into neighborhoods known and well lit

Please let our local citizens not cast any spells unto us

Please let our vacation end with the least amount of tears and sorrow as we embark on our way home
