“In the morning, O Lord, Thou wilt hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to Thee and eagerly watch.” Psalm 5:3
Today is National Day of Prayer. It’s one day where the people of America are mobilized to pray for each other, our nation, and the world. What an incredibly powerful moment for God- an opportunity to open doors and transform lives.
We wanted to share with you a little insight into how we incorporate prayer into our everyday lives here at Water Missions International. As a Christian Engineering Ministry, prayer is a foundational component of who we are and how we function. Each morning, we begin our day in what we call a “huddle.” This is where we share our victories from the day before, our priorities for the day ahead, and, most importantly, where we devote time to prayer. And not only do we do this in our Charleston headquarters, but each of our nine country programs participates in a prayer/worship time every morning. It is the fabric of our organization.
“Blessed are You, O Lord, for You have heard the voice of my prayers. You are my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in You, and I am helped.” Psalm 28:6
It’s so important to take every major decision, conflict, worry and praise to the Lord. Because we believe in the power of prayer, we also pray over our safe water systems, both at the headquarters before they ship and in the field. And prayer is part of our ministry around the world; an opportunity to share the love of Jesus Christ with others.
The fruit that comes from devotion in prayer is so sweet. We have seen a multitude of blessings from time spent in prayer, and will continue to Praise God for “every good and perfect gift from above” (James 1:17).
“Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving.” Colossians 4:2
We ask you to join us in prayer, both today and every day. Every week we send out weekly “Prayer Ripples” newsletters sharing our prayer requests and praise reports from all across the world. To receive these weekly e-newsletters, sign up by emailing email@example.com.
