About

I have a few things I’d like to discuss with the President of the United States. As I ponder it, I have a number of questions and requests for my congressman (as well as the quarterback for my Baltimore Ravens).

It is unlikely I will get an audience with any of them. These folks have busy schedules and thousands of friends, supporters and fans. Only a few get any meaningful time.

But, as a child of God, I have the opportunity for an instant audience with the King of kings, the President of presidents, the universal MVP. Whatever the need, whatever the time, I can always get an appointment. He is ever ready to give His full attention.

Chi-Rho is my endeavor to create a written account of my prayer life. I’ll post the prayers I like and admire, my personal prayers, the intercessory prayers I pray and receive. I hope I hear from you, with your words of encouragement, prayers or prayer requests.

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints — Ephesians 6:18

Chi-Rho

The Chi Rho is one of the earliest cruciform symbols used by Christians. It is formed by superimposing the first two letters of the word “Christ” in Greek, chi = ch and rho = r. Although not technically a cross, the Chi Rho invokes the crucifixion of Jesus as well as symbolizing his status as the Christ. The earliest evidence of the Chi Rho symbol is Constantine’s use of it on the labarum, the imperial standard, in the early 4th century CE. Lactantius, a 4th century Christian apologist, reports that on the eve of the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312 CE, Constantine had a vision of God in which he was commanded to mark his men’s shields with the Chi Rho symbol. After Constantine’s success at the Milvian bridge, the Chi Rho became the official imperial insignia. Archaeologists have uncovered evidence demonstrating that the Chi Rho was emblazoned on the helmet and shield of Constantine as well as those of all of his soldiers. Coins and medallions minted during Constantine’s reign also bore the Chi Rho. By the year 350 CE, the Chi Rho began to be used on Christian sarcophagi and frescoes.
