At the end of July I began including an audio for my daily Pause for Prayer posts. I've received good feedback on this and I plan on continuing to provide it.
Yesterday I happened to receive two quite different and unsolicited responses to my audio efforts.
One reader had written asking if I'd meant to capitalize "august" in Tuesday's post. I replied that she must not have listened to the audio because that would have answered her question. She wrote back:
"I don't listen to the audio. This may sound weird, but I feel as if that would make it less my prayer time."I wrote back that I didn't think that was weird.
Another reader offered this comment:
"I enjoy the wait for your voice to catch up with my racing thoughts. Within the dichotomy, there is peace. Thank you."These two responses got me to wondering about how you pray with these posts.
Every reader, of course, has several choices:
1) pray with the audio only
2) pray with the text only
3) pray with the audio and then with the text
4) pray with the text and then with the audio
5) pray with the audio and text together
As I noted above, I plan to continue offering the audio (it only adds about 5 minutes time to the posting task) but if you'd like to share how you use the audio/text, I (and perhaps others) would be interested in your response.
