Romans 6: 10-11
For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Lord Jesus, we thank You for Your ultimate sacrifice for us, your dying on the cross on that Good Friday. But we are even more thankful that You rose from the dead to eternal life, and that we who believe in You, we who are alive to God in You, can share this eternal life with You.
Jesus we pray for Father Shaw and Mother Julie and all their students in Belize. May they be empowered to share your message throughout the world. Be especially with Father Shaw this week as he begins ministry in Ogdensburg and as he continues to plan for his worldly travels to Tanzania and Belize and North Carolina. Be with Mother Julie as she continues her CPE studies. Help them to not be lonely as they are separated from each other a lot in the next 3 months. We also pray for financial provision and for a good solution to the insurance problem. We pray for your favor on the grant application that needs to be submitted this week. We ask all of this in Your Holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
