Planning. For some of us, making plans is a joy. For others, it’s a burden. Regardless, as we read the Bible, and especially the Proverbs, we sense a tension that exists concerning our plans. There is a certain wisdom in preparing in advance. And yet, we’re reminded that it is always the Lord who establishes our steps.
So, as we make plans—plans for new resources, updated classes, budgets and administrative plans for 2021, and much more—we pray that the Lord would go before us and establish our steps. Would you pray with us?
- For our faculty: Pray for insight and clarity as they continue developing content and ideas, writing, teaching, counseling, and planning upcoming projects. Pray for time to be refreshed in the Lord and look to the future, especially as the demands of the moment are often pressing.
- For the 2021 National Conference: Even as the 2020 National Conference comes to fruition, plans and preparations are underway for next year. Pray for our events team as they navigate the new landscape of conferences in our world today.
- For our 2021 plans: Throughout the fall, we brainstorm and draft plans for the upcoming year. Budgets are compiled, speaking events are booked, classes are scheduled, and much more. Pray for wisdom in our planning and faith to trust that it is the Lord who will direct our steps in the year ahead.
