He who sacrifices thank offerings honors me, and he prepares the way so that I may show him the salvation of God.
Our Father in heaven,
We thank You that the testing of our faith develops perseverance, which leads to maturity and completion, not lacking anything. How could we not lack anything unless we have the mind of Christ? How can we not lack anything unless we are filled with Your Spirit?
We pray for the Christians in the schools of the Mississippi Delta, who are being tested. Pour out upon them a spirit of thanksgiving, that they may see Your salvation.
As they walk each day in You, direct their footsteps. As they talk to non-Christians, teach them to say the right word at the right time. To make an apt answer is a joy to a man, and a word spoken at the right moment, how good it is! Amen.
James 1:2-4, Proverbs 15:23
