Colossians 1: 9-12
For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.
Lord God, we thank You for the ministry of Fr. Shaw Mudge. We continue to pray for him, asking that You fill him with the knowledge of your will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives. May Fr. Shaw live a life worthy and pleasing to You in every way. May he bear fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of You, and being strengthened with all power according to your glorious might. May he have great endurance and patience, and give joyful thanks to You, Lord, for your glorious kingdom of light.
We pray for Fr. Juan Marentes and the part that he is playing in translating Fr. Shaw’s teaching materials into Spanish. We pray for the upcoming mission trip to Belize and for some progress in the discussions about Fr. Shaw’s involvement with ministry education in Kasulu, Tanzania.
Lord, continue to help and guide the Mudge family as they discern your will in making some important decisions. Please open doors for them to help them fulfill your will for them.
