Livin' on a prayer

Whooah, were half way there
Livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and well make it - I swear
Livin' on a prayer

Yup, Bon Jovi was playing on the loudspeakers, right in front of the grandstands on the Indy 500 track--exactly the halfway point of the race! I don't know if that was planned or not, but I definitely took it as a sign and an encouragement.

Now I need to work on the "living on a prayer" part. We pray before meals, we pray when we see an emergency vehicle going on a call, we pray at bedtime...but am I living on a prayer? I'm afraid our Western luxury makes it too easy to rely on our own resources.

Lord, help me not just pray, but live on those prayers.
