Ask our Father to encourage those who are weary and hard pressed in their roles and responsibilities. Many have tasks that seem unrelated to planting churches and making disciples, yet they are important and time-consuming, such as – renewing visas, meeting officials who have authority, booking flights, fulfilling government requirements, being interviewed by sometimes unsympathetic officials. These all add to the stress of living in a foreign land and take time and strength. Ask for wisdom, patience and a relaxed attitude for members, as they face these and similar issues often on a regular basis.
