Lord, send your messengers to speak in the wilderness areas of my life. Have them come into all those parts of my life that are still untamed.

Holy Spirit, bring me, bring all of us to repentance and the certain knowledge that the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying: "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the LORD; Make his paths straight.' " (Matthew 3:3)
LORD, help me to hear that voice. Make your ways straight before me. Thank you.
A word received: Give thanks for my provision. Pray for eyes to see it.

He who has begun a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6)
Father God, we thank You for the good start to the semester in Belize and we are confident that You will continue to be with Father Shaw as he teaches, creates new courses, and gets ready for his trip to Belize at the end of October. Help him, Lord, to give the students just what they need so that they can do your work. We pray for much fruit in Belize and also in Tanzania. May there be a flurry of activity there all leading to greater knowledge of You and ways to spread your kingdom.
Be with all of the Mudge family, Lord. Be with Mother Julie as she pursues her CPE studies and assists her husband with his mission work. Be with Lydia as she continues her own on-line college studies and with Hannah and her work in the Albany Diocese and with Ruth in Chicago. And be with the older generation as well. May they all be well with a minimum of emergencies that bring the wrong kind of excitement.
We trust in You Lord. Amen.
