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.

We depart from Grace Community Church at 3:30am. Steve Cobb has graciously agreed to drive the team and our supplies to and from the airport-another example of a willing servant-following Christ's example.
My co-worker, Carolyn, has been so enthusiastic and supportive and has kept her uneasiness about me being gone for a week to herself.
The staff and students at LN have been so kind and gave me one blessing after another. A gal, Gloria, that works with Tom is commited to pray for the team at 7am every day. And my mom, even though she is weak from chemo treatments, has been diligent in praying for us.
My kids came over tonight and we ate together and hung out.
I am filled with love. Ready to spill it out.
