All pictures taken from a solo-day hike in the wilderness for my day of vision and prayer.
View of ranch in distance middle-right.
Everyone on our team spends at least one day a year in prayer, solitude, and silence before the Lord.
It’s a time of exploration.
It’s a time of seeking.
It’s a time of prayer and discernment.
What does the Lord want from me this year?
In what areas do I need growth and the support of my community?
And it’s a time of refreshment.
Resting in the presence of the Lord.
My prayer in the desert and for this year of ministry…
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8
