Benediction

May the Lord disturb and trouble you,
May the Lord set an impossible task before you,
And dare you to meet it.
May the Lord give you strength to do your best;
And then - but only then -
May the Lord grant you peace.
Amen

Numbers and Isaiah juxtaposed at an intersection of God's blessing.

To pray for an impossible task - and the power to overcome it.

To pray for peace only to come after engaging with the best of what we have to offer - exceptional.

This is a prayer of invigorating faith, compassion, strength and demanding passion for seeing God at work.

I am praying for you and your ministry.
