Keep Pushing, Pressing, Persevering!


How are you doing? Can you believe we have entered the last third of 2011? I don’t know about you but it seems like this year is flying by.

Thank you for putting an extra prayer push towards Iraq. Your prayer arrives at a strategic time as the nation pushes into transition.

On a more personal note, a couple years ago I did a wow devotional on perseverance. The idea was that the word “severe” is also tucked inside of that word. And isn’t it the truth that right on the heels of the first mile, when you feel the strain, the second mile arrives to stare you in the face.

You might find yourself in a season of perseverance right now. Let me encourage you with two pieces of reality: God is for you, & perseverance is always met with a reward.

I’ve written a prayer of blessing for you: “May the Lord meet you and strengthen you. May you feel the light of His face and the realness of His empowering grace. May joy overtake you on the journey and break through as the sun pierces the clouds on a gloomy day. I speak peace to you and the reality of His Presence over you, around you, in you and through you. Take courage. Persevere. Victory awaits you. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Okay, don’t forget to uphold Iraq. Let’s use the prayer below to lift our voice as one.

In His love and mine,
Kathleen Dillard
