10DOP – Day 1: Matthew & Lisa

January 11, 2014

For our first day of prayer, we ask that you pray for US!  It sounds selfish, but it is oh-so-necessary.  A life of full time ministry, plus three kiddos, makes for an easy way of asking for prayer.

Today, please pray for our own spiritual renewal each day, with time in prayer and God’s Word.  Please pray that we have time together to keep our marriage strong.  Pray for us as parents – whew, this stage has such mountains and valleys!!!  Finally, pray that the training we’re receiving in this stage of life will cement us as useful tools for the Lord in a foreign land!

For fun, here is a photo history of our TEN years together (we first met February 21, 2004).
