A Journey

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Lao tzu 604 BC

 

Since praying for the persecuted church during Ramadan, I haven’t been able to shake the Spirit’s prompting (and that wording isn’t even accurate–I was waiting to see if the prompting was truly God or just me). . .

set aside focused time to pray.

for me and my family

for my friends and their ministries

for our churches

for the orphans

for the prisoners

for our country

for our persecuted brothers and sisters

I have had to repent–

of my fear of looking foolish

of my hardness of heart in caring more about me and less about others

of my lack of faith in thinking will this even matter?

For the next 40 days I will take a break from “normal blogging” to focus on this prayer journey. 

Day 1

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord! O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!

If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.

I wait for The Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope. . .for with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption. . . Psalm 130:1-7 ESV

Father, thank you for your steadfast love and forgiveness. As I bring my requests to you, I depend on your word that you hear me and you will do your will.

I would love to hear comments from anyone who wants to join me in prayer. It will not be perfect. But because of God’s plentiful redemption we can get up and take another step. . .

 

I want to know what you think!
