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 Mighty Fortress is our God

Tom and I spent the weekend in Kentucky with his mom and sister's family. We had a great time talking and laughing together. Prayers were said for the team and the people we will be serving in Haiti. Susie and John are such great examples of how to serve cheerfully. IT was great to hear about how much they enjoy helping in the nursery at church. I will remember their positive attitudes and willingness to serve others while I am away.

Susie gave me an old hymn book and it has one of my favorites. I copied it so I can sing it next week. The words are beautiful! " We will not fear...for God hath willed His truth to triumph thru us. " Amen

    It was great spending time with you and Tom Friday night and Saturday at Susie and John's.
    I know you will be a blessing to all in your care and you and the team will be in my prayers for safe travels and during your time in Haiti helping those in need.

    Love, Dotty
