To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ; TO THE INTENT THAT NOW THE MANIFOLD WISDOM OF GOD MIGHT BE MADE KNOWN BY THE CHURCH TO THE PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES, (Ephesians 3:8-10)
Lord Jesus Christ, it seems like all the knowledge transfer is going the other direction: the church is being informed and fed by the world and principalities and powers instead of the world and principalities and powers being informed and fed by the church.
Holy Spirit, please help us earnestly contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. (Jude 3b)
Father, you are able to keep us from stumbling and bring us faultless into the presence of your glory with great joy. You along are wise and we pray that your glory and majesty, dominion and power will be shown forth among us in this diocese, both now and forever. Amen. (Jude 24-25)
A word received: You are in my care.

Remember, someone once said,
“If a blow a fuse, you will be in the dark…”
Isaiah 2:5 writes,
“O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of the Lord.”
