Below is what I shared with my Kenyan Ministry Group page on WhatsApp this morning:

Wait on the Lord, and He shall save thee.
Prayer (to God)

“Now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require from you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and love Him, and to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,
“Coincidentally,” I have been awake in the wee hours of the morning here in the USA, talking to the Lord about waiting on Him. Perhaps I can sleep now.
