prayer requests

I had been planning to write specific prayer requests for the trip and my dear, sweet, amazing hubby, sent the following as an email to some friends and family! He is just thoughtful like that! Oh how I will miss him.

We would certainly covet your prayers for this trip.


Emily leaves on Wednesday (June 9) for Ethiopia, returning Friday,
June 18. Writing to ask you to join me in prayer for her time in the
country we have grown to love.

- For the team of Julie, Kristin and Julie; for harmony,
encouragement, sweet fellowship and for grace to abound (Eph 1:15-23)
- That God would further reveal His heart for the poor,needy and
orphaned in Ethiopia and what our family's response should be (James
1:27, Matt 25:40)
- For safety as they travel 8 hours outside the capital of Addis Ababa
(in the region the boys are from), to visit humanitarian projects with
reps from A Glimmer of Hope (see (Isaiah 58:6-8)
- For divine appointments as she meets with friends there, helping
arrange the logistics for the dental mission trip we will all be going
on in October
- Comfort for her mother's heart as she leaves 7 of us behind (and
maybe a little bit for me for Abe to sleep!) Ps 121
- That God would be glorified in all things (Ezekial 26:22-23)

Thank you.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Oh my gosh!! I didn't realize you were leaving already! I so need to catch up with you. Call me when you get home! Love you, praying for you!

Emily, I will be praying for you often. I know that God will use you as His instrument while you are there. Wish I was going with you to pick up our little girl. Our time will come. Allow God to use you, refresh you and inspire you while you are there. He will take care of those you leave behind for 9 days...

Oh Emily! What a blessing to read Moody's prayer as it gives me great insight to his heart. No wonder he and Brett are still best friends after all these years and the miles that separate them!
Know that you can count on my prayers during this trip. Thank you for your faithful example of what it looks like to be used as an instrument for His glory!
Love & Blessings from Hong Kong,

Heather said...

Oh Emily! That Moody is a precious one! I will print that out and post it so I can pray specifically for the things he asked!
Have so much fun! I am so excited for you, as I know how your heart longs for that country.
Love on some Gladney babies too!! (I know you will!) Maybe one of them is ours! <3
