John 1: 1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Today, Lord, Father Shaw Mudge and his students from Belize begin their course on Biblical Interpretation. Lord, we thank You for that great source of Your Word that reveals Jesus Christ to us. May the students have great insight into the character of your Son, Jesus Christ. May they know his light. May they share that light with others. May your Kingdom come in all its glory as your light shines in the hearts of Father Shaw and his students. Shine, Jesus, shine! And may your Holy Spirit help them and inspire them in their studies.
We pray for stamina for Father Shaw as he creates new resources with which to deliver his courses. We pray for financial provision for him and his family. And we ask for blessings on Mother Julie and Lydia and Hannah and Ruth. We thank You Lord for your provision and for every answer to prayer. Amen.
