I wrote these words in my prayer journal this past week on 2/24/17:
“If I could imagine myself at Your feet, what would I hear You saying to me?”
As I waited, I clearly heard the Lord say the familiar words to me again:
I felt led to look up the word “trust” and the definition that most stood out, and the one that I added to my journal entry:
TRUST = RELIABLE
Isn’t it wonderful to know that the God that we serve is RELIABLE? Meditate on that thought this week. Stan and I have been in and out of Belize over 30 times since 1998. Each trip has been challenging and sometimes even scary, but I CAN TESTIFY THAT MY GOD IS RELIABLE!
Please continue in prayer with us this week for the two teams from Wyoming traveling to Belize this year.
Begin here with a prayer from “Prayers that Avail Much” (today’s daily prayer):
Father-God, I thank You for the Body of Christ! We have been raised up to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus! I am a citizen along with all of Your holy people. I am so grateful that I am a member of Your family. Together, we are Your house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets, and the cornerstone is Christ Jesus, my Lord and Elder Brother. You have joined us together in Him and we are becoming a holy temple for the Lord. Holy Spirit, help me think of ways to motivate others to acts of love and good works. When we meet together, give me words of encouragement, especially now that the day of Your return is drawing near, in the Majestic Name of Jesus.
Scripture References: Ephesians 2:6, 19-21; Hebrews 10:24-25
And now agree with me for these two Wyoming teams to Belize:
And Lord, we thank You for the work you have given to Your servants from Wyoming and other places to do in Belize this year. We accept our assignment from You and thank You for showing us how to walk in faith. We thank You in advance for the members of Your Body in Belize that we will encounter. You have already joined us together with them through Christ. Show us the acts of love and good works that You would have us to accomplish. Holy Spirit, we ask You to encourage us again this week to continue in perseverance. We say THANK YOU, in advance for all You will do, Lord.
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
PRAISE: for Laramie team: our team grew from 7 to 11 who have confirmed for our July trip! THANK YOU, LORD!
UPDATED PRAYER REQUEST FOR LARAMIE:
for more members for the Laramie team; we are believing the Lord for 15; we have 11 confirmed and several more who are still considering please pray for everyone called to HEAR THE CALL! Also, we would like to take a worship leader with us and also several who can teach prayer.
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
for Gina: I am going to try and personally raise $5000 for projects in Belize to include repairs on base and in our neighborhood, construction (TBD), work on the Mobile Workshop, children’s ministry, prayer ministry
Thank you for praying for us today! We are believing the Lord to do GREAT THINGS in Belize this summer.
