Bread for the Journey

We want to wish all the Canadians a Happy July long weekend celebrating Canada Day, and our American friends a happy July the 4th weekend.

We live in privileged countries, were we are able to still worship in freedom. That is something we can never take for granted, and I am so grateful that I live in Canada. I want to pray a prayer for you all as you celebrate this long weekend. No matter what you are doing, splashing at the beaches, lounging in the warm sun, BBQing with family or friends, or maybe you are the one that is working, waiting for your turn to be off a weekend. Perhaps you are facing difficult circumstances in your life, you are not forgotten, nor are you alone.
What ever the day holds for you this is my prayer........

May the Lord our God, sustain you and strengthen you.
May you remain faithful to God so His unfailing faithfulness to you upholds you.
May His love for you, draw you closer to His heart, every day.
May the Lord be with you, go before you, to equip you,
for the work He has called you to do to fulfill His purpose in your life.
God's richest blessings be yours, now and always.

  3. Thank you. I think Bread for the Journey is wonderful. A great way to start the day. Praying the same for you.

  4. I have been doing a lot of reading on my Mennonite history and the goodness of our God has really been a theme for me lately. I am more thankful than ever that I live in a land where I can do what I want, when I want and nobody will persecute me or take what is mine. But, I have also been reminded of the joys of a simple life. I pray that your family is also blessed this summer.

  5. Thank you for this prayer blessing. This has touched me deeply, and has given me comfort for another day.
    God bless you.
    Truly, Jean

  6. I had a wonderful time meeting you at the conference. Thank you for the wonderful prayer and I am so proud to share in our Mennonite Heritage. It is so much more than food, but a wonderful faith in our loving God.
