“Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace. Matthew 6:6 MSG
I wanted to sit down and write about all the wonderful people we saw this week and all the challenges some are facing but I find I can’t keep my mind focused. I keep straying to all the emails I’ve received this week and the wonderful people that took the time to write them. So I think that this week I will pray for all the ministries new friends and hopefully get my focus back on the streets again next week. I do have one request though. We met with one of the families we see on a weekly basis and while visiting with them we heard gunshots very close to their home. I jumped when I heard the shots but the kids just stood there and said ‘oh don’t worry we hear gunshots all the time’. Please pray for the protection of these young children that have to live in the midst of the warzone we call a city.
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:10-12 NIV
