“The Lord loves such pleadings because there is a measure of faith in them. When the person in trouble cries, ‘Lord, deliver me’ he is looking away from himself. You see, he is driven out of himself because of the despair in his life. He cannot find hope or help on earth; therefore, he looks toward heaven…. God can spy out even a small trace of faith, and He can and will accept prayer for the sake of that little faith.

                                                                                  – Charles Spurgeon

 

“For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beast of the field are mine…. Offer up to God thanksgiving…and call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.” (Psalm 50:10-11, 14a, 15)

 

 

 

Missions Prayer Requests:

 

Please pray for our upcoming mission trips in 2020:
Please pray for protection from the Corona virus for our missionaries in China.

Please pray for our missionary partner, Tampa Seafarers Center, Steve Finnesy.

 

  • A specific prayer request is to pray for the crew members on board the ships.  For the most part during this time they are not granted shore leave which means there are many crew members who have been stuck on their ships for months at a time without any break to get off the ship and relax, shop for necessities or just to see a different face.  Pray these seafarers will be comforted by the Lord and that these restrictions will be able to be lifted soon.
  • doors and opportunities to invest in the lives of those who don’t yet know Christ. Pray that we will walk in His Spirit and see the opportunities that He gives us.
  • With a son at college in California, a daughter taking a gap year in Colorado, and the other three of us together in Mexico City (currently on stateside assignment), we are learning like never before to trust in the Lord.  Please ask God to give us great wisdom as we parent teenage and young adult children in this new stage of life.  Pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to work in our children’s lives and that they would follow after Christ.
