Father, please help us by your Holy Spirit to do those works of righteousness which are acceptable to you.
Father, let your word of peace through Jesus Christ be preached throughout this diocese.
Father, thank you for anointing Jesus with the Holy Spirit and with power so that all who are oppressed with disease or by the devil will be set free by him.
He shall cry to me, "You are my Father, my God, and the rock of my salvation." (Psalm 89:26)
Jesus, we join you in crying out to our Father: "You are my Father, my God, and the rock of my salvation."
A word received: Open your heart to me. I am waiting.
A word received: You are in my care. I will prune you and make you fruitful.

***** Jeanne Gizara, Friday, January 10, 2014, Mudge Scripture Prayer
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. (Colossians 1: 9-12)
Father God, as Paul prayed for the Colossians, we intercessors pray for Father Shaw Mudge. May Father Shaw be filled with the knowledge of your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of You, fully pleasing to You, and bearing fruit in every good work he does for the Diocese of Belize and always increasing in knowledge of You. May Father Shaw be strengthened with all power, according to your glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy. We give thanks to You, Father, that you have qualified Father Shaw to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.
May all of Father Shaw’s work bring glory to You, Lord. Guide him in all meetings and in all plans to improve the ordination process in the Diocese of Belize. May your Holy Spirit guide and supply all the needs of Father Shaw and his faculty, family, finances, plans, programs, diocesan programs and parish visits. Amen.
