All Staff Prayer.
Every Monday morning we get together as a staff and pray--sometimes about things in our own lives, sometimes we read a devotional, and sometimes we pray over requests in our congregation. Today, we had the opportunity to pray over requests from Rwandan pastors that were brought back with the mission team who just returned from two weeks there. It was incredibly humbling to read prayers for shelter, new glasses, and medical help for tooth pain (among other things). It's so easy to forget how richly blessed we are, and today I'm grateful for that reminder. I have a home, glasses on my head, and the ability to go to a dentist (though I often avoid it). Thanks be to God!
