Tuesday, November 8, 2020 Switching gears to just Psalmist Prayers
Late start to NaNoWriMo. Which is okay because I don’t write novels. But that is neither here nor there.
I have prepped for the next ten weeks (i.e. chapters) of Monday’s Commentary on Romans. But my confidence was a bit waning on even completing those ten weeks, which would have been about 20,000 words.
With that, I also wanted to make a hard dent into Now Sings My Soul. So I went to prepping for that. And prepping turned into writing. And writing into a filling up my heart with such joy and affections for my sweet Savior God.
I looked at the pace of which I write these prayers. In the beginning, I was writing a prayer per Psalm. But the more I read, the more I sat still. The more I dwelled on the Psalms, the more that each verse and idea starting to spring up more and more prayers. To be honest, each Psalm verse was generating a new prayer.
Then reality sets in. If I want to complete the project, how long would it take me?
There are 2,461 verses in the Psalms. Source: Study.com
I have covered 53 verses thus far. That leaves me 2,408 verses to pray over.
At my current rate, if I wrote one prayer per verse per week, this project would have taken me a little over 46 years.
But what if I wrote one prayer per day? Six and a half years
What about three per day? A little over two years.
So challenge accepted!
So I am going to use NaNoWriMo to make a hard, 90 chapter push into completing Now Sings My Soul.
I have put out 70 prayers. After this, month I will be 160 prayers in with over 2000 left to go.
To God be the glory alone.
