Awake, my soul! … I will awaken the dawn.

Psalm 57:8

My husband and I did an early morning prayer hike on this gorgeous early spring morning, awakening the dawn, feeling very small, pleading with God over this Central Asian city where we’ve lived for many years…asking Him to come and heal the fledgling church, to rescue those in such darkness, and to flow through those who are His here.
