Give me the words…

The journey is beginning.  On May 31st, I will again board a plane to a foreign country.

What to pray for?  I wonder this quite frequently.  There are so many turns this trip could take; which one is best?  I pray for safety, for patience, for His love to fill me that I may pour it out.  But what specifics?  Jesus tells us to pray for specific things and watch to see what the Lord will do.  I want to.  Yet I don’t know where to start.  What things do I pray for that He will honor?  How do I know He’ll honor them and bring them to fruition?

Oh Spirit, give me the words.  My heart’s desire is that You would be glorified; give me the words to pray.  Show me Your will, that I may pray for those specifics while I pray for Your desires in general.  Make Your desires mine.

He will.  He will give me the words.  He will pray through me.  He will bring His glory, and I will be blessed to see it.  Pray with me, friends.  The glory is just as much yours to see as it is mine.

Wait and See

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Ephesians 3:20-21
