This week's church prayer is for:

"For you will go out with joy, And be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands..." Isaiah 55:12 (NASB)
When starting out on a venture for the Lord sometimes it begins with excitement. We've heard from Him and we are excited about the new direction He is taking us. There may even be signs along the way that we are on the right path. He prepares the way, He makes our paths straight. There are confirmations--God "coincidences"--that make it seem like everything will be smooth sailing. While on this path we need to take time out to pray in our hide-away prayer place. Little coves where we can seek the Lord, pray, worship, enjoy His presence and receive continued direction.
Sometimes the road will get rough. The path isn't as smooth and we may begin to doubt the path we are on. We may wonder if we missed it somewhere and where that was. But it doesn't necessarily mean we did. We need to stay alert and in tune with Him. Sometimes we can learn from those who have been on this path before us. We need to continue to worship Him, it will get us through the rough times. We don't need to be looking for an easy way out, but for the right and true path. God has a hedge of angels protecting us when we are in the place He wants us to be. We don't need to worry, we just need to stay close to Him, and listen.
