A few days ago (because I'm a blogging fool and seem to blog all the time now), I wrote a prayer request post. I was really having a lot of anxiety over the impending opening of the musical I'm in, Godspell, at a local community theater. My friend Melissa suggested that I join this prayer chain that her blog friends were starting, and I thought it was a great idea.
She suggested I link to my original post, but I decided to do a separate one, just so I could be a little clearer in my requests.
So, I'm linking up with Amy this morning and asking for some prayers.
I used to do live theater all the time in high school and college. When I graduated, I was too busy with work and life to get involved, so this is the first time in 8 years that I've done any live theater... and I have an actual speaking/solo part!
Because of this, I am having some anxiety. I feel stupid, because it's not like I've never done this before, but I've been really self-conscious and worried that I will screw up. Please pray that lean on God during this time and realize that this is supposed to be fun, not trying. I need prayers for confidence. I need prayers for the strength of my voice.
Additionally, the whole show needs prayer. If you are not familiar with Godspell, it is a quirky musical that is based off the book of Matthew. As a group, we act out a variety of parables, and the theme is about building a community with Jesus at it's center. Today, we are having our first run-through of the entire show. I ask for prayers for today, that even if it's rough, we will be encouraged by our progress and not add on more anxiety to our lives.
So, that's it for me. Now, how can I pray for you?
