Opening Prayer: For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. (Psalm 62:1-2, ESV)

Scripture: Psalm 62:1-12

Journal: What do the words God alone stir up within you? Why?

Reflection: When religion has said its last word, there is little that we need other than God Himself. The evil habit of seeking God - and effectively prevents us from finding God in full revelation. In the and lies our great woe. If we omit the and we shall soon find God, and in Him we shall find that for which we have all our lives been secretly longing. - The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer

Prayer for the church, for others, for myself

After years of leading Young Life Spain and Young Life Western Europe, Jim and Barbara McNamee are now developing new areas as part of the regional staff. They are working to start new ministries in the five countries of Western Europe, including Luxembourg, Andorra, and Italy. Their primary focus at this time is starting a new YL area in the Basque Country of Spain. Pray today for 10 high school students to sign up for the USA program in July 2018.

The goals of Kentucky Mountain Mission (KMM) and Youth Haven Bible Camp are two-fold: to reach the children and adults of southeastern Kentucky with the gospel of Jesus Christ and to train/disciple those that receive Christ for Christian leadership in their churches and communities. Pray today for scheduling of college recruitment visits and God's provision of counselors for next summer.

Closing Prayer: For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is in him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I will not be shaken. On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. (Psalm 62:5-7, ESV)
