Since ive gotten to Brasil Ive been working through Concepts Of Mission devotional by Glory E. Dharmaraj Ph.D. and I wanted to share the prayer from page 20. This morning, to me at least is very comforting and telling of how we feel (or maybe its just me) as missionaries in the 21 century
God of mission, you have promised that you will always be with us. Though we are filled with fear, uncertainty or anxiety at times, your assurance, comfort and guidance strengthens us when we step out for mission. Thank you. Now we pray that you would open our hearts and minds to the new things you create and the unexpected ways in which your Holy Spirit operates. Help us to greet with joy your new ways and the new experience you provide. Amen.
