I stink at reviews so I will spare you all but this: Studio 60 is the only primetime show I can think of with a Christian woman that prays on the show, talks about her faith that can't be quantified, without acting like she is just off the prairie or dons a bonnet. I'm not issuing a fatwa against prairies or bonnets - if they work for you, fine. But I need a Harriet. I need to see a Christian living in the city, with a sense of humor, a belief in God; a woman that loves the people around her and doesn't build a wall around herself. I need a Matt. (He looks a lot like a Chandler to me.) I need to see a man struggle to understand the woman he loves and the beliefs she holds.
I need Studio 60.
In last night's episode, Harriet stopped to pray during a crisis. It was awkward. My eyes felt the urge to roll. But I wonder why. I struggle with prayer. I feel like an idiot when I lead a prayer, even among friends. I struggle with how to pray when I am alone. Friends ask me to pray for them, their love ones. And I try. I do.
Yet, I wonder: Am I doing it right?
Did I miss the prayer portion of the ministry program?
I try to quiet my heart. I think about those in need. I ask God to help. I thank him.
I hope it is enough.
Oh, I almost forgot. As promised:
