Prayer of Thankfulness and Preparation

Soverign Lord, I praise you for your supremacy. All authority is yours. You are the rightful ruler of all. Thank you for prompting your church to help the poor and needy in so many ways. Thank you for those who have offered encouragement in the form of words, prayers, gifts, and service during this time of preparation. I pray that this tool might be a source of blessing for those whose heart is broken for our brothers and sisters in Haiti. According to your word, I pray for the Hatian people: answer them in their distress; protect them with your name; send help; grant support; help them rise up and stand firm; fill them with joy and peace as they trust in you; help them overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit; fill them with the knowledge of your will through all wisdom and understanding, endurance and patience. May your cause prosper among the nations so that in everything you might be glorified in Christ Jesus. Amen.

A co-worker brought cards made by her Sunday school class at New Bethel Baptist Church to give to the children in Haiti. They are beautiful! Maya age 6 writes "I hope you are doing good and working together". What a thing to hope for.
I have been reading a book by Dr. Paul Brand called "He satisfies My Soul". The chapter I read yesterday talked about water and how our bodies are designed to need a constant supply of water and use water so efficiently. And our spirits need the water of life to grow and bear fruit. friend, Alicia sent me a message and suggested I try to drink a lot of water today and tomorrow. Not a coincidence. So I have taken that to heart today.
My friend, Melissa and I prayed together tonight for our kids and church. I am praying that God will give me an opportunity to introduce some moms in Haiti to Moms in Touch. Praying for my kids gives me so much peace and allows me to let go of control. God knows I need that!
