SOS (Save our Souls)
Almighty God, Who has given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech Thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will. Bless our land with honorable ministry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion, from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people, the multitude brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endow with Thy spirit of wisdom those whom in Thy name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that through obedience to Thy law, we may show forth Thy praise among the nations of the earth. In time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in Thee to fail; all of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Even Thomas Jefferson knew that no man, no political party, no media pundit, and no tech giant could bring the healing and blessing that King Jesus affords to our nation! When we individually repent, following the way of Jesus wholeheartedly and persuasively invite family, friends, and foes to do the same, we will see a return of the Lord’s favor to the extent that we succeed. Yes, by all means, we should rightly do what we can to influence leaders and laws, but such acts by themselves are idols, unworthy of our hope in them. However, helping others identify the Lord’s voice in their day-to-day lives exalts the one true King’s Way that develops peace and success.
SOP (Shouts of Praise)
Taking a cue from our update of two weeks ago titled Garments of Praise, we choose this week to rejoice in the goodness of God. His faithfulness never ends. His mercies renew every morning! With great joy, we brag on His magnificent provision this week. Our dear ministry partners, He used you to prepare our return to Cote d’Ivoire and expand witness there. Thank you for giving generously and faithfully in 2020. December donations for this ministry pushed our operating account cash balance to a sufficient level. We are humbled yet amazed. We are mindful that the gifts came despite COVID-19 shutdowns, fixed incomes of modest means, and because others similarly choose to honor the Lord more than their earthly comfort. May He bless His righteous!
