Heavenly Father, thank you that here in Cairns we are not working in isolation but that we are partners together with so many others. Thank you for the many who pray, give, and encourage the work here at JCU. Thank you also that there are many other staff workers across the state who work hard for the growth of the gospel at different uni’s. May we encourage each other and share our wisdom as we meet together for the QLD staff meeting. Please give us the ability to make the most of it though it will have to be online this time. Please help Dave and Andrew as they teach us next week, may they be faithful to your word and stir us up to think hard about how the gospel shapes our lives and ministries. May the new staff joining us this year feel welcome and have good opportunities to connect and prepare for the year ahead.
