Lauren Johnson is on her two week missionary journey with Overland Missions.
Let us keep her in our prayers:
We bless you, O God, and we praise your name,
you anointed your own Son with the Holy Spirit
to preach good news to the poor,
to heal the broken-hearted,
and to comfort the sorrowful.
Look kindly on your servant Lauren whom we send forth as
a messenger of salvation and peace.
Guide her steps, and with the power of your grace
Strengthen her in spirit.
Make her words the echo of Christ’s voice,
so those who hear her may be drawn to his Gospel.
Through her may your Holy Spirit touch the hearts of all she meets.
We ask this through Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the same Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
O God, our heavenly Father, whose glory fills the whole creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go: Preserve those who travel & in particular Lauren & her missionary group; surround
them with your loving care; protect them from every danger; and bring them in safety to their journey's end; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
