You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. - Psalm 139:13 (NIV)
At two weeks old, my daughter, Rebecca, had open-heart surgery to repair a rare congenital defect. For the next two months, she fought for her life. Every day was a struggle. During that time, I learned to rely on God for both my strength and my daughter’s health.
Today I will ask God to be my strength.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
