***** Shaw Mudge Prayer Mail for Tuesday, 20 January 2015
This is our public prayer mail for Tuesday January 20, 2015, Fabian of Rome. Lydia continues immersed in ministry in Honduras. I have been preparing for my trip to Belize as well as working on courses this week. The time frame for the next trip has been set for most of the second half of February and arriving back in early March.
1) For preparations for the on-the-ground mission trip to Belize. Prayers for fruitfulness on that venture.
2) For the continuing everyday fruitful mission work with Belize.
3) For the completion of the Spanish Prayer Book in a timely manner.
4) For God's provision for all our needs both here and abroad,
5) For the sale of our dwelling in Wynantskill. There were quite a few people looking at it this week, some with quite an interest.

In Jesus' Name, Shaw+, and on behalf of Julie+ and Lydia
***** Jeanne Gizara, Saturday, January 17, 2015, Mudge Scripture Prayer
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3: 14-19)
Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we bow our knees before You as we lift up Father Shaw Mudge, Mother Julie Mudge and Lydia Mudge. May they be strengthened with power through the Holy Spirit; may Jesus Christ dwell in their hearts through faith; may they be rooted and grounded in love; may they have strength to comprehend with profound certainty the breadth, length, height and depth of Christ’s love that surpasses knowledge; and may they be filled with all the fullness of God.
Thank You for all the blessings that You have bestowed upon the Mudge family. We pray for blessings for Lydia as she continues her time in Honduras. And for Father Shaw as he gets ready for this trip to Belize in February, and for Mother Julie as she works for You as a hospital chaplain in Connecticut.
We pray for provision for the Mudge family and ask especially that their home in Wynantskill sell soon for a good price. And we pray for the day to day mission work and the completion of the Spanish prayer book.
Thank You for everything. Amen.
