praying for missions {week 20}

Isaiah 50:4
The Lord God has given me
    the tongue of those who are taught,
that I may know how to sustain with a word
    him who is weary.
Morning by morning he awakens;
    he awakens my ear    to hear as those who are taught.
Pray that we can take personal prayer retreats in order to get our direction from God. We will never feel like we have the time to do this - it's going to take discipline!
