Acts 16: 6-10
They went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been prevented by the Holy Spirit from speaking the message in the province of Asia. When they came to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them to do this, so they passed through Mysia and went down to Troas. A vision appeared to Paul during the night. A Macedonian man was standing there urging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us!” After Paul saw the vision, we attempted immediately to go over to Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to proclaim the good news to them.
Father God, thank You for all that You do. Thank You for the great gift of your Son, Jesus Christ and thank You for your Holy Spirit. Thank You for your servants, Paul and Timothy, who were so brilliantly guided by your Holy Spirit to spread the message of Jesus in their journeys. Lord, we pray that your Holy Spirit, in a like manner, guides Father Shaw and Mother Julie in their mission work. Give them visions, Lord, and give them discernment, too.
We pray for all of the Mudges as they enjoy a little summer break before Lydia goes off to college. Bless them and help the pieces to fall into place. We pray that Lydia is able to take her driver’s test and that she enjoys the pre-college wilderness adventure in the Adirondacks.
Thank You, Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, for all that You do for the Mudges. Amen.
