Let Me Introduce Myself

Hello everyone - My name is Pastor Ed Boston, aka Cyber Pastor, and I'm honored to be the Chaplain for Pray for the Hostages. I've wanted to write this post for over a week now, but my laptop has been/is being worked on so it has had to wait.

When Vicki asked if I would serve along with her, Matt, and Wyatt, I was excited to be a part of such a fine group of people, but told her I would like a few days to pray about taking on another commitment.

I pastor a small church in south central Indiana, am the campus Chaplain for the Adult Services branch of an extension site of a Christian University, the Chaplain for the local police department, on-call Chaplain once a month at the closest hospital, I am an Ambassador for the Presidential Prayer Team, blog regularly, and my wife and I host a Blog Talk Radio program each Monday through Friday night.

Now you see why I wanted to pray about another commitment.

However, when praying I kept thinking about what a need there is for "Prayer for the Hostages". Vicki didn't know it, but she had hit my soft spot and that is prayer. I knew I had to join forces with this group.

Right now, I'm working on a training session for those who are part of this group and want to participate. For now, I would suggest a couple of things that maybe you are already doing but if not, please consider it.

1) Take a time-slot to commit a specific time where you will pray for those who this group was founded to pray for. You don't have to pray for an entire hour, but wouldn't it be awesome to fill up every time slot 24-hours a day, every day of the year.

2) Utilize the list of the hostages, and pray for each person - by name - at least one time a week, more if you can. It doesn't have to be a specific time, and no one has to know you are doing it but God and yourself.

Please let me know if there is any way I can help you personally. You can contact me at

May God Bless you, and may He especially be with each person we are praying for!
