Wednesday is for Prayer
May God be gracious to us and bless us,
and make his face to shine upon us, Selah
That your way may be known on earth,
your saving power among the nations.
If you are reading the Psalms through in a month,
the morning reading for the 13th day of the month is Psalm 67.
It is fuel to keep the passion hot in the soul of a church planter.
The psalmist prays
- that God’s blessing and grace would be so evident in his life, …
- that God’s brightness would be so intimate and personal in experience …
- that others who do not believe would be forced to acknowledge the ways of God and the knowledge of salvation would be known among the nations.
It is great passage for the church planter to hold on to.
Lord, would you do this in the life and ministry of all my former students? Would you bless them with such a sense of your presence that your grace is unmistakable to all who know them? Would you bless them in your lovingkindness so that all who come in contact with them know that you, the sovereign Lord, is among them? Would you do all this, for your glory, Lord, that your saving power would be extended to the nations. Amen.”
