It's easy for our minds to wander...

Whenever we're given a task, it's not only the task that we're dealing with. There is also the fact that we have our lives going on as well with our struggles, weaknesses, relationships, etc. An example of this would be mission work. A group of teens and adults from my church went out to Ohio for a mission trip, and we were given a list of the personal prayer requests that each of the members had. One thing that stuck out to me was the common request of praying for ridding distractions. That's very important, though! If we aren't in the right mindset --if we're just doing the work to get the job done-- as servants, we aren't doing our jobs right. As followers of Christ, with everything we do, "whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus" (Colossians 3:17). If we're doing all things for Christ, we ought to do them wholeheartedly, right?

It's easy to be caught up in the world with everything we need to deal with in daily life: work, friends, family, paying bills, doctor's appointments, car repairs, whatever the case may be. Rather than worrying, trust in God. It's certainly easier said than done. I know, for me, worrying is a big issue that I have to deal with. Who better to give your life to, though, that knows all things and wants what's best for you?

Pray for the missionaries in your life. If you don't know any, pray for them in general: both short-term and long-term. They're making so much change in people's lives through the work that God allows them to do. They're also battling things that are behind the scenes as well. Pray for their strength. Pray for them to keep on track. Pray for them to be wholehearted in their work and keep with the Lord. The Word of God is very important in any Christian's life.
"Your word is a lamp for my feet, and a light on my path" (Psalm 119:105).
God bless!
