Colossians 3: 14-17
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
We pray for peace and love for Father Shaw and his family as he spends 6 weeks in Belize doing your work, Lord. We are thankful for Father Shaw’s ministry. Let the word of Christ dwell richly in him as he teaches the future clergy of Belize and fills in for a parish priest on a short sabbatical. All that he does, both word and deed, is done in your name, Jesus. We give thanks to God the Father through You, Jesus.
We pray for safety for Father Shaw and for his family back in the U.S. Let your Holy Spirit guide Father Shaw in all that he does. May he do a mighty work for You. We pray for issues of health, the weather, and safe and smooth travel. May the grant application be successful and the visa extension be trouble free.
And we pray for the whole Mudge family about relationships, events and appointments, decisions to make, educational goals, gainful employment, fruitful ministry, and God’s presence with them. We pray especially for Lydia as she makes plans to continue her education. Bless them all, Lord. Amen.
