And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the first born among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.
Lord, we often do not understand your ways, but we have faith that You have a greater purpose in mind and that as we follow the path that You lead us in, all things will work together for good. Thank You for the ministries of Father Shaw and Mother Julie. Thank You that they are being conformed into the image of your Son, Jesus. Thank You for calling them into the mission field and may all their work be for your glory.
Be with Father Shaw this week in Ogdensburg. Help him to get acclimated to parish life again and to find the right balance between his parish duties and his teaching mission. We ask that the evaluators for the fellowship grant look favorably upon his application. Let all things come together for all the traveling that He will do in the next few months. Be with Mother Julie in her teaching and her CPE studies. And be with their daughters as they continue their walks with You: for Lydia as she develops her plans for the future; for Hannah and her Oaks of Righteousness Ministry in Troy; and for Ruth as she looks for a new place to live. Bless them all, Lord, these servants of yours who love You so much. Amen.
