May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
God of hope, we thank You for the joy and peace that comes from trusting in You. We thank You for the gift of your Holy Spirit that makes all things in your will possible and which brings so much hope.
Father God, we thank You for your Son Jesus Christ and the ultimate gift that He offers to us.
Father God, we thank You for the joy and peace which Father Shaw Mudge obtains as he believes in You and plugs into the power of the Holy Spirit as he does his mission work for the people of Belize. Thank You for the hope that the Anglicans in Belize now have because of the ordination of new priests and other fruit of Father Shaw’s ministry.
We pray for continuing inspiration, hope, joy and peace for Father Shaw and his family as they proceed on the journey that You have willed for them. We pray for the move to Manchester CT, for the continued affiliation with the Diocese of Albany, for the mission work in Belize, for the development of the course about Anglican church history and the preparations for the trip to Belize in late September.
We ask for peace, effectiveness, love, joy and creativity for Father Shaw and his whole family.
