My parents, Brian and Karen(kate) are leaving for India on Monday with my brother-in-law's parent's, Jim and Cathy. A prayer has been circulating via our email's. I would like to share this prayer, and invite you to join and pray for safety, peace, protection.....
Heavenly Father of Health and Life!
I ask for rest and good health for your servants Jim, Cathy, Brian, and Karen – help them to withstand the rigors of travel. Give them patience and the opportunity to testify to your glory and grace, even as they travel to their mission field. Please prepare the people they are focused on – pave the way for the Holy Spirit to soften hearts, open hearts, and cause eyes to see.
Lord – you are a God of the details of our lives. If you care about the sparrow, you care about the luggage. This luggage is special because it contains tool of the ministry – gifts for children to teach them about the greatest gift – the gift of life through the Savior Jesus Christ. It also contains their clothes. Though John the Baptist had rough wool clothes and was effective; I ask that Jim, Cathy, Brian, and Karen have the opportunity to wear the clothes they chose and not have to worry about purchasing new clothes or imitate John the Baptist. I ask that the luggage make it through the trip, without separation, and intact.
We are counting on You to make this trip a glorious event for those who need to hear and for those who feet are beautiful because they bring the good news.
