Psalm 105: 1-4
Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;
Make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
Tell of all his wondrous works!
Glory in his holy name;
Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
Seek the Lord and his strength;
Seek his presence continually!
Remember the wondrous works that he has done,
His miracles and the judgments he uttered.
Lord, we pray this psalm for Father Shaw and his family. We give thanks to You as we call upon your name. We sing praises to You and are thankful that You have made it possible for Father Shaw to make known your deeds among the peoples of Belize and that he tells of your wondrous works and brings glory to your name. We pray for the people of Belize. Let their hearts seek You and rejoice. May they seek You and your strength; may they seek You continually. Thank You for all your wondrous works, for your miracles and righteous judgments.
Lord, we thank You for all the good works that Father Shaw has been doing in Belize during these two weeks. Thank You for your Holy Spirit and the guidance and encouragement that You have given him. Continue to be with him as he oversees the Synod session on ministry development over the next 10-15 years. And grant him safe and timely travel back to the U.S. on October 13.
We also persevere in our prayers for the whole Mudge family, for the Anglican course which is underway, and for every task that You give to the Mudges. May they be faithful servants for your kingdom.
Lord, we also pray for financial provision and for a speedy sale of the Mudge home near Albany.
We praise You Lord for all your wondrous works! Amen.
