I am beginning to think there a Schwärmer or two in the house.

How do you get the Umlaut to hang over the "a"?  I can't figure that out.  Will pray on it.

Dave Benke


I don't know about other computers, but my Mac's do that with option + u for the umlaut, then the vowel which is placed under it, ä; option + e gives an accept, é; option + a gives the long vowel symbol, ō; option + o gives ø; and there are others. (As noted elsewhere, the "option" key is the "alt" key on other computers.)

Oh thank you! Now all I have to do is remember that.

Not working.  I get nothing with that instruction.  Will pray harder.

I think I know what the problem is.  Praying harder is an American Evangelical instruction, not a Confessional Lutheran instruction.  Do you feel it is time to make a decision about keyboards?   ;)

In 'The Young Pope' Lenny said that he prayed so hard that he fouled his britches.

I have not received that feeling yet, but as it is given to me, I will report out.  Of course, I pray for you as well.  Prayer changes things.   8)

"Pray for my soul.  More things are wrought by prayer
Than this world dreams of.  Wherefore, let thy voice
Rise like a fountain for me night and day. 
For what are people better than sheep or goats
That nourish a blind life within the brain,
If, knowing God, they lift not hands of prayer
Both for themselves and those who call them friends?
For so the whole round earth is every way
Bound by gold chains about the feet of God."

From "Idylls of the King," by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. A friend quoted this the other day, and several of us had him repeat it several times, so we could fully appreciate it. (Makes me think I should go back and reread the "Idylls" again.)

Perhaps most often prayer changes the pray-er.
"The church … had made us like ill-taught piano students; we play our songs, but we never really hear them, because our main concern is not to make music, but but to avoid some flub that will get us in dutch." [Robert Capon, _Between Noon and Three_, p. 148]

With all due respect, prayer doesn't change anything--God does.  Prayer may be the path used by God to change us, but it is not our prayer that has power, it is God.
