"Wait"

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 62:1-8

Journal: How are you waiting on God these days? What does that look like? What is it doing within you? How might God be waiting on you?

Reflection: He works in tranquility and tranquility seldom goes in partnership with speed. God breaks few records but he always arrives in the end. One of the best things we can do for our souls is to wait and one of the worst things is to force the issue. God lets the plant grow at its own pace. (The Fruits of the Spirit by Evelyn Underhill)

Prayer for the church, for others, for myself

Global Partner Focus: Europe

Bobby and Teresa LaDage are working with Redeemer City to City (the church planting arm of Redeemer Church in NYC) envisioning, equipping, and mentoring church planters and their wives in order to see gospel-centered churches reach the major cities of Eastern and Central Europe. They are also now serving as European Regional Leaders for United World Mission. Now settled in Birmingham, England, pray for the LaDages as they seek permanent visas for the United Kingdom while in the U.S. later this summer.

The Thornston Educational Fund is an organization whose mission is to initiate and develop relationships with certain educational institutions that serve the needs of underprivileged individuals and families in Asia. Pray today for the organization's work and for the people who are served.

Closing Prayer: For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. (Psalm 62:5-8, ESV)
