The Year of the LORD’s Favor

1 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,

2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,

3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of his splendor.

4 They will rebuild the ancient ruins
and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
that have been devastated for generations.

This is the verse that we are using for the Mission Adventures program this spring and summer. The theme is Re:Act and we are talking to the students about how we are to react to what God has already done for us. The prayer focus will be for the poor, the prisoner,  the broken hearted and the captive. Tomorrow I am headed to Ensenada, Mexico via Winnipeg and Seattle to teach and facilitate a Mission Adventures week for high school students focused on this theme and these prayer focuses. I want to be one who does Justice, one who brings awareness and one who is used in any way to see the poor, oppressed, slave and prisoner freed.

Please keep me in your prayers these next two weeks that I am gone, my family and I would greatly appreciate it. I will try to post regularily, but we will have to see how much time and internet connection I have. Thanks for reading and for coming back each Friday for more, it means a lot to me.
