Romans 8: 28
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
In this season of Pentecost, Lord, we pray for a new infilling of the Holy Spirit for Fr. Shaw and Mother Julie Mudge, their mission team and their intercessors. Thank You for this gift of the Holy Spirit that gives such power to do your work, Lord. We thank You for the guidance and for the assurance that our work is what You would have us do.
And we know that all things work together for good for Fr. Shaw and Mother Julie. You Lord knew all along where You wanted them to work and what You wanted them to do.
We thank You for the surprises that come each day. Thank You for the opportunities in Belize and Tanzania. Thank You for the new opportunity to talk about on-line theological education with people from Jamaica and Barbados.
Lord, we ask your protection for Father Shaw and Mother Julie when they travel to Belize. Keep them safe from typhoons and may Your Holy Spirit guide them so that they may better discern your perfect plan for them.
We pray that Lydia passes her driving test and has a great summer in Maine. Thank You Lord, for answers to our prayers. Amen.
