Prayer Calendar Reflection: June 2013
The Prayer Calendar promotes mutuality in mission. It includes testimonies of people who are in mission with people. Affirming this, Missionary Jerri Savuto nurse at Maua Methodist Hospital in Kenya says:
I met a 9-year-old boy that weighed 20 pounds, was unconscious and near death. When I touched his shoulder his eyes opened, he smiled and I saw Jesus. I knew he hadn’t been alone in this suffering but with Jesus. Mission is mutual. You can’t give without receiving but usually what we give is tangible and what we receive is not. I went into mission to help heal, teach, understand and love and I came home healed, taught, understood and loved.
Excerpt from Prayer Calendar 2013, week June 23.
Take a moment and reflect:
- What is God prompting you to do today?
- In what ways have you been touched when you have tried to reach and touch others with God’s love?
- What partnerships can you seek in mission?
