Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Adoration: Christ Jesus, I join you in your saving work . . .
Isaiah 30:19-26 & Matthew 9:35 – 10:8
Intercession: Christ Jesus, help N_______ to join you in your saving work.
When I join Jesus’ team of harvest hands going off into the fields of the world, what am I to do? I am not in charge of ‘snatching souls from the gate of hell’; this is Jesus’ role. Rather, Jesus tasked his disciples –and you and me today –with proclaiming the good news, that the kingdom of heaven has come near. “Cure the sick [in heart and spirit], raise the dead [to abundant life], cleanse the lepers [any who have been dis-connected from society due to mental or other dis-ease] and cast out demons.” This is what I am to do in the fields of society. Christ Jesus, I join you in your saving work. Help N._______ to join you in your saving work.
And when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left, your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” (Isaiah 30)
