Christmas Prayer

Well, today is the day after Christmas.  It's a day when we start cleaning up the Christmas papers and, leftovers, and we start hearing music other than the Christmas carols on the radio.  It is also a day when we start focusing on the year to come.  That is what my prayer today is about.  My prayer today is this:
"Lord, thank you for all the many blessings you have poured out to Mercy Uganda, for the gifts You have given through friends, family, donors, and sponsors, both those we know and those we have never met. Lord I pray that as we prepare for 2012 You will prepare our hearts for what you have planned for us. That you, Lord, will bless the work of our hands, that You will enlarge our boundaries, that You will provide all that we need for this ministry, and for the lives we seek to minister to in Your name.  Lord, as we prepare for 2012 and consider how to face the mountain that is our Faith 500 Vision, that You will provide the land and the resources for the orphanage and the school.  Thank you Lord, that You go before us, that You have already prepared the way before us. Help us to step out in faith, and to trust You, obediently seeking and doing Your will.  Thank You Father.  In Jesus' name.  Amen

  1. Amen and AMEN...

    And Father I add that those of us helping, in such small ways the vision you have given to Larua and Mark, that we would be faithful to You in our giving. We thank you for the bounty we have from You and help us to see that we only have it because of You, not of ourselves, or our own doing, but from YOU, the Giver of all things. May we be faithful with our giving to Mercy Uganda to help your little ones who have so little. We don't know why You have give us so much and them so little, but it isn't our place to question the intent of the Creator of the Universe. May we have no rest until we give as you lead us. In the matchless name of Jesus, Your Son, our Savior and Redeemer, The Prince of Peace. Amen.
