From Isaiah 61: 1-3
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; … to comfort all who mourn, … to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord that he may be glorified.
Divine God, we know that Father Shaw and Mother Julie Mudge wish to be planted exactly where you want to place them. We ask Lord, that You gift them with discernment so that they may hear your orders clearly. Then they will be oaks of righteousness ministering on your behalf and bringing You glory. They will thrive while sharing good news with the poor, binding up the broken hearted, proclaiming liberty to captives, and opening the prison doors for those who are bound, as well as comforting those who mourn, and replacing faint spirits with garments of praise. Lord, we ask this for the Mudges and for us their intercessors, that our faint spirits may be exchanged for strong ones made up of praise and adoration. We ask this in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
