Monday Meditation

But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. Jer. 29:7 (NRSV) Have you ever been sent to a place where you did not want to go? Have you found yourself in an unpleasant environment or situation? Even in these moments and places God calls us to pray. Our prayers should go beyond our desire to change our situation, but should include the welfare and improvement of where we are right now. Pray fervently for the location and the individuals that dwell within it. As we meditate on the verse of the week, remember wherever you find yourself, seek peace and goodness for you and all those around you. Trust God to deliver you in His timing. In the meantime, pray where you’re planted and watch God move. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon
