40 Days of Prayer

All of us who are members of SIL, Summer Institute of Linguistics, together with the members of Wycliffe Bible Translators, are starting 40 days of prayer, for our organizations and for the work they do.  Each week is a different theme, starting with this week’s question “What are we thankful for?” We are offering thanks for who God is and what he is doing.  We are thankful for the father heart of God.  We are thankful for what God has done through SIL.  We are thankful that God is at work in his world.  We strive to offer thanks to God together with others in our organizational group.  In our case, that would be Chaz and I spending some time together in thankfulness.  It will also be my touching base with my Translator’s Notes team members.  It will be Chaz touching base with the other consultants he works alongside, and the translation teams in Colombia and Guatemala.

Today we read in the book of Exodus and these verses stood out to me:

“Who among the gods is like you, LORD?  Who is like you —majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?

“You stretch out your right hand, and the earth swallows your enemies.  In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed.  In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling….

“…You will bring them in and plant them on the mountain of your inheritance —the place, LORD, you made for your dwelling, the sanctuary, LORD, your hands established.”  from Exodus 15

May you be encouraged today as you practice being thankful for who God is, has been, and will be to you.  Be thankful for how he is working in your life and in the world around you.  Think about how YOU can be a part of his work, right there in your corner of the world.
