Prayer and Discernment

“The one thing I ask of the Lord- the thing I seek most- is to live in the presence of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in His beauty. ”

Teach me how to live, O Lord. Lead me along the right path. I am confident I will see your goodness.” (Psalm 27).

There are many decisions to be made in the development and growing of a missionary training school. Making the wrong choice can be very costly in terms of time, resources and even lives. The right choices may be costly in the same ways yet yield amazing fruit in the advance of the Kingdom.

We are experiencing the absolute necessity of Joshua’s direction to the children of Israel. “Stay close to the Ark of God’s Presence because we have not been this way before.” (Joshua 3:3-4)

So this week we are spending hours in worship, prayer and discernment. Discernment, discernment, discernment.
What is God saying about strategy, about personnel, about curriculum, about resources, about new initiatives?

At the end of our time of discernment we only ask that we may hear Him clearly and that we may have the grace to follow Him faithfully no matter where He leads.

So we wait patiently and confidently for the voice of the Lord.
