Monday Morning Grace

A Collect for Grace

O Lord, our heavenly Father, almighty and everlasting God,
who hast safely brought us to the beginning of this day:
Defend us in the same with thy mighty power; and grant that
this day we fall into no sin, neither run into any kind of
danger; but that we, being ordered by thy governance, may
do always what is righteous in thy sight; through Jesus Christ
our Lord. Amen.

Will you all please hold in prayer Erin, from the RG blog Construction Time Again?

She is in a bad position with a potential marriage splitup, 2 year old son, and unemployed.

thanks and blessings.

Mrs. M said...

Prayers for guidance and/or contentment, please.

There's an opening where I'm temping, I think I'd really enjoy it, but I don't know whether they've already made a decision (or whether they'd take me). Since I'm not starting seminary this fall, I'd love to have something stable.

(And I'll certainly lift up Erin.)

Rainbow Pastor said...

Erin and mrs m are lifted up in prayer.

I'm feeling in a more settled place today, but that may be because I'm at a dead run with all I have to do and the momentum won't let me waver...

Thank you for the prayers for Matt and for me as well.

Urgent prayers for Viola, the sister of a Kenyan friend of mine.

Her sister is travelling from Kenya to the Sudan for a job. She has a friend in the Sudan who paid for her travel and says she has a job for her. The family does not know this person and is worried that it may be a human traffiking situation, but they were unable to persuade the young women not to go.

My Kenyan friend here in the US is obviously worried about her sister.

Please pray for Viola's safe travel and that there is in fact a real job waiting for her in Sudan.
