Thoughts on Today's Verse...

While fasting is not widely practiced in many churches today, it was clearly something that was a part of the early church experience. Whether sponsored by our congregations or not, let's make sure that we prepare for major events with a time of prayer and fasting, asking for God's leading, power, and guidance as we embark on his work in the world.

My Prayer...

O Lord, I know you love all people. Please bless those who are in cultures other than their own, seeking to lovingly share your Gospel with those who are lost. Bless their efforts with success, protect them from the evil one, and lead them in the direction they need to go. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
