Psalm 43: 3-4 and 5b
Reveal your light and your faithfulness! They will lead me, they will escort me back to your holy hill, and to the place where you live. Then I will go to the altar of God, to the God who gives me ecstatic joy, so that I express my thanks to you, O God, my God with a harp. … Wait for God! For I will again give thanks to my God for his saving intervention.
We thank You, Lord, for this time of rest, recreation and reflection in the lives of Father Shaw and Mother Julie and Lydia Mudge. We pray for their travels in Colorado: the missionary conference that they are attending and the family wedding at the end of the week. We thank You for the faithfulness with which You have shown the Mudges every step along their journey. Continue, Lord, to shine your light upon them.
We pray that Lydia will be able to take and pass her driver’s test before leaving for college and that you protect her on the wilderness adventure in the Adirondacks which is a requirement for her before starting classes. Help her to be ready for her college studies and for the social aspects of college as well.
Let their be safe travel throughout this summer, Lord, and we pray that You will lead the Mudges into their next mission field. Speak to them Lord. May they have that ecstatic joy when they hear your voice. Thank You, God, for your saving intervention.
Praise be the the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
