Dear Praying Friends,

Rachel and I appreciate your willingness to receive this reminder to pray each Wednesday for our prodigals and for revival. Prayer is a form of trust. Interestingly, John Piper in talking about the topic of meekness says, “Meekness begins when we put our trust in God.” The meek do not trust in themselves but in their great God.

In the third beatitude, Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5). These words echo the Psalmist, which says, “The meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity” (Psalm 37:11).
