Pray for Missionaries Passage:
Proverbs 16:1-9, “To humans belong the plans of the heart, but from the LORD comes the proper answer of the tongue. All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the LORD. Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. The LORD works out everything to its proper end— even the wicked for a day of disaster. The LORD detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished. Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the LORD evil is avoided. When the LORD takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them. Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.  In their heart’s humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.”
 
I love a good plan, don’t you?  In fact, I am often resistant to any changes in my plans.  I’ve learned, though, many times my plan is not God’s plan.  He refines and tweaks my plan until it becomes His plan.
 
Think about times you’ve made plans for going on a mission trip, starting a new ministry, or reaching out to people in your community.  Did your plans go exactly as you thought they would?  When you make plans, you are viewing the end result through human eyes.  Even if you pray and ask God to give you direction, rarely does your plan turn out exactly as you envision.  It often takes His intervention to make your plan turn into something that glorifies Him.
 
It’s not bad to have a plan.  God gave us minds so we could plan and make the best use of our time.  Pray and ask God to help you let go of plans that don’t match up with His.
 
Prayer focus, Sub-Saharan African Peoples: Workers in South Africa give thanks to God that the publication of a newer version of the Zulu Bible in modern language has just been made available.  Pray this newer and more understandable version of the Bible would soon be available widely and relatively inexpensive so more Zulu speakers would be able to clearly understand the truth of God’s Word.
