2Peter 1: 5-8
Make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Father God, we pray for all these good attributes to increase in Father Shaw Mudge so that he can always be a more effective and fruitful minister to your people. Holy Spirit, we beseech you, strengthen Father Shaw in his faith, in his virtue, in his knowledge of You, in his self-control, in his steadfastness, godliness, brotherly affection and love. As Paul says in Galatians, there is no law against such as these.
We pray for Father Shaw’s mission to the people of Belize. We pray for provision for him and his family. We especially pray for the sale of the townhouse in Wynantskill. May your buyer be made known soon. And we lift up Lydia as she prepares for her mission in Honduras. Bless her mightily, Lord.
And as we await the celebration of the anniversary of Jesus’ birth, we pray for all of our fellow intercessors, praying that their lives may be full of the love, peace and joy of this season. Amen.
