Praying in Exile

June 28, 2013


Today is an exciting day.  Friday is our Missionary Prayer Day.  Many of you know that for years Carol and I have enjoyed prayer partnerships.  On each day of the month we have someone(s) for whom we pray and who pray for us.  So too, on each day of the week we have a matter about which we pray;  Monday is family.  Tuesday is our congregation and the broader church.  Wednesdays we pray for our community.  Thursday we pray for special needs/requests.  BUT Friday is our Missionary Prayer Day – a day when we reflect on the many who serve in mission.

I want to give a “shout out” to list something of an “honor role” for those for whom we consider it an honor to be praying.  At the top of today’s list are:

Brian, Amira, Thomas and Lydia                    Mark, Matthew and Christopher

Our prayers seem to go longer on Friday.  They seem to, at times, tear at our heart strings.  They also seem to build us up with joy and hope.  It is an honor to review these saints’ lives and to bring them before the throne of grace.  It is our hope and prayer that you too will find grace and hope and peace and joy as you engage in prayer for those around the world who have given so much…

p.s. you might also check out the “Honor Roll” tab and join us in prayer for our daily prayer partners..
