The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
Lord, we thank You for the excellent start to the on-line theological program in Belize. Thank You for sending your Holy Spirit to Father Shaw as he develops the curriculum and thinks of new ways to deliver the course material in this technological age. Thank you for all the students who are working so hard to become ministers of Your Word. May all of Father Shaw’s work and all of the students’ studying be guided by You, full of your wisdom and leading to the understanding that You intend.
We ask for your continued inspiration for Father Shaw and his students as they continue to delve into effective ways to interpret the Bible. Be with Father Shaw and Mother Julie as they visit St. Paul’s in Brookfield CT this Sunday. May they meet new financial supporters and intercessory prayer supporters during their stay. And we pray also for Father Shaw’s trip to Belize in October and his part at the Synod of the Diocese of Belize and for the longer range plans of bringing on-line theological training to the Diocese of Western Tanganyika in Tanzania and to the Diocese of Albany as well.
We thank You, Lord, for every blessing. Amen.
