Dear Heavenly Father,
I pray on my last day before embarking on this adventure that your will be done. God you know my imperfections, my heart better than I do. I ask that you use me and my flaws to be an example of your love and power. Lord, guide my steps so that I may follow your will closely and bless the people around me in Ethiopia. Lord, I thank you that when I make mistakes or fail you show me mercy, grace and love per your word. I pray for your help in recovering quickly from all set backs. I pray for safety and open doors.
Help me grow in wisdom, humility, strength, knowledge of you, maturity and grace.
Well gosh golly gee God you certainly answered my prayers in big ways. Time for a new one.
I pray for the continued growth of our boys. As 2013 is still up in the air, I pray for Gods clear guidance and wisdom. I pray for the heart wrenching struggles but I also praise your name Lord for the abundance of your grace, love, work through us, and presence… Thank you for getting us through so much and doing it ways that we can’t take any credit for. You are the best thing ever!
Finally, I pray you bless everyone who has played a role in this adventure of yours. I ask you to let them feel loved by you. Thank you for my amazing family, friends and church.
Thank you Lord for taking me on this journey. Amen!
