I just got back from a ladies prayer meeting for missionary families, with a focus on the wives. What an encouragment it was to be part of the meeting and to be being prayed for. I was asked to give a few specific requests and explain a little of what we will be doing.
Though just a handful of women, the Lord met with us, and it is a delight to be added to the list along with these other women that I have prayed for in similar meetings for many years.
It has been a blessing to know that people have been praying for us, and to have emails distributed for prayer for us as well. It is an extra sweetness to be part of one of those meetings!
We certainly have felt upheld by the Lord and know it is answer to many others prayers. Thank you
I have been reading over a section in scripture for the last few weeks and praying for the Lord to work it into my life and I shared the passage tonight. In God's Providence, 2 or 3 times others have written these verse in a card for me or in a note!
Ephesians 3: 14-21
For this reason I bow my knee before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and heighth and depth,and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever . Amen
To be strengthen by the Spirit, having Christ dwelling in me and knowing the love of Christ! Isn't that what we all desire? If we have that, we are ready to serve Christ in whatever he calls us to.
