August 2021 Prayer Letter
“I” TROUBLERecently we felt we were having some trouble seeing well so we made an appointment with the optometrist to have our eyes checked. Following his exam we were given a new prescription and subsequently got new glasses. We needed a few adjustments for a perfect fit and voila, crystal clear vision. 20/20 and even able to clearly read the finest print once again. It’s amazing what corrective vision can do.
…One thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. (Jn. 9:25)
All too often we have trouble seeing clearly in another area as well… We have “I” trouble. Our vision needs checked, re-prescribed, corrected, and adjusted to really see clearly. Talking in a spiritual sense, we have “I” trouble. We’re reminded of a Sunday School statement years ago, “we often pray amiss”… I tell God what I want, when I think it should happen, how I want it done, and so on. Even though many times our prayers really do seem noble.
I have I trouble, I need to go to the Great Physician (God), get His prescription (His word), receive corrective lenses (to see with the mind of the Lord), and be adjusted to see and do clearly!
As we align ourselves with the mind and will of the Lord, our vision will change and we will see all things in His way, through His eyes, and in His time.
Here’s the best place to start; from the direct teaching of Jesus. Note the collective value and the omission of “I”…
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. (Mt. 6:9-13)
Voila; reread the fine print, it’s amazing what corrective vision can do. We can have crystal clear spiritual sight when we see through the eyes of Christ.
Watch for some exciting new video content from KWO! We have acquired some new audio and video equipment and software that we hope to have up and running very soon. There will be some early previews on Facebook and a soon to be announced YouTube channel. As always, you can click on the Facebook icon on our website at www.kwoutreach.org., watch for some new updates here too. Please keep this new vision of media ministry in prayer during project development and broadcast launch. International travel remains complicated so we view this effort as a greater extension of our outreach for Jesus Christ that can cross these boundaries more effectively.
Please keep us in prayer also as we travel West once again. There are stops planned in between, however, our primary destination is Wyoming and Utah. Pray for health, safety, divine appointments, and most of all the salvation of souls.
Thank you to all who contributed to Lydia’s Grace for distribution/witnessing tracts, supplies, and materials. We are packaging bibles, hygiene bags, and handmade dishcloths to distribute across the country as we travel West. Pray that many souls are touched, encouraged, and receptive to the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout our travels.
Lydia’s Grace is an approved subsidiary of Keystone World Outreach that focuses on sharing the love of Jesus to women in need through the distribution of feminine care products.
