Good morning, Friends!
I’m actually getting this one out in the morning! Always good to start our day in prayer, huh? 🙂
Just two quick requests this week so I will get right to them:
• Please pray for our friend, Karen, who is still on her mission trip in Tanzania for two more weeks. Please pray this week for Karen’s times of preparation – she will be speaking on Saturday, 9/21 at a gathering of women on the topic of God’s love. Karen’s mom will also be speaking so we can pray for her too! If you’ve missed our previous prayer requests for Karen, she is in a village of Tanzania called Kigoma. Karen is working with an organization called Hope of the Nations, which provides orphans there with 2 meals a day, a clean uniform, and schooling. Please continue to pray that Karen will yield to God’s daily plan for her. Pray that the Holy Spirit will speak boldly through her and that there will be a great harvest of spiritual fruit in the lives of the Tanzanian women she ministers to.
• The Throne of Grace team would LOVE your prayers! Several of the team members have big decisions to make this week regarding our time commitments for the next few months. Decisions we make regarding home and family life will greatly impact our ministry with Throne of Grace. It is always a challenge for us to find the right balance and we have to continually go to the Lord in prayer and seek His direction with each step! As we enter the busiest season for our ministry, we would greatly appreciate your prayers. Please pray specifically that we will clearly discern God’s will, submit joyfully to His plans, and keep HIS GLORY at the center of all our decisions!
I’m guessing there are many of you who are currently evaluating and committing to responsibilities and ministries for the year. Fall brings a new school year with new volunteering opportunitites, new sports season, the busyness of holidays, and for many, the start of a new ministry year with church, MOPs, Bible study, AWANA, etc. Let us know if we can be praying for YOU in these same ways! Let’s all be mindful of seeking God’s will – even in those very good things – and letting Him direct our steps.
