Isaiah 52:12New International Version (NIV)
12 But you will not leave in haste
or go in flight;
for the Lord will go before you,
the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
Last week, I began the journey of praying more intentionally for the two teams traveling from Wyoming to Belize this summer. Both teams will be ministering with Oasis Ministry, our Belizean “arm” of ministry. I invite you to continue on this “prayer journey” with me as we see God’s plans unfold.
I have shared Isa. 52:12 above because this scripture stood out for me in my readings this week. Please join me in praying THAT WE WILL WAIT for our two Wyoming teams to Belize:
Lord, we believe You for success for these two teams from Wyoming into Belize this summer. These are Your teams! Help all of us to wait upon You, not rushing ahead trying to figure out things in our own strength. Open our ears to hear Your voice in the valleys of “indecision.” Help us to remain calm and prayerful throughout this journey. As You move us forward, we also ask You to protect the work that we have already done in preparation for these missions. Be our “rear guard”, protecting us from the enemy who tries to steal our joy and our resources. May Your Name be the Name that is exalted in our teams. We refuse pride and choose to walk humbly with our God. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN.
Specific prayer requests for both teams:
for clarity on projects to be completed in Belize; we are working with our missionaries there to determine all that can be accomplished
for the Lord to raise up more prayer warriors to cover these teams in prayer
for more members for the Laramie team; we are believing the Lord for 15; we have 7 confirmed and 5 who are strongly considering; please pray for everyone called to hear the call!
for fundraising efforts for both teams; we are trying to raise approximately $1500 per team member for Laramie team and I think Cheyenne is comparable
Thank you for praying for us today! We are believing the Lord to do GREAT THINGS in Belize this summer.
