Psalm 67: 1-3
May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, that you may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations. Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you!
God the Father, please be gracious to Fr. Shaw and Mother Julie Mudge as they travel to Uganda and Kenya in order to discern the next step in your mighty plan for them. May your face shine upon them as they prepare to teach others in foreign lands your saving power among all nations. Let the peoples of Africa praise You. O God. Let the peoples throughout the world praise You!
Lord, we pray for every travel mercy for the Mudges. May all the flights be on time and uneventful. May all connections be made. And upon arrival in Africa, may the Mudges be able to communicate with the people there and with their friends and family and prayer partners in the U.S. Keep them healthy and safe Lord. And give them assurance about the site for their next phase of ministry.
We thank You Lord that Lydia seems to be enjoying her second semester at college. We pray that she keeps up with her studies and also makes some new friends for a positive social life. Help her to find a Christian community which will help her to stay connected to You. Help her to grow and be healthy in body, mind and spirit. Amen.
