May the God of HOPE fill these ladies with all JOY and PEACE as they trust in Him, so that they may overflow with HOPE by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).

We ask that Ellen, Kathy and Rebecca experience new hope, joy and peace.

Lord, we want to lift up to You the women dealing with various illnesses. Chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, cancer, migraines, stomach issues, malaria, parasites and allergies are not uncommon on the field. Not to be underestimated, is the menopause period that can cause havoc physically and emotionally. Please lead those facing medical challenges to wise resources. Enable them to maintain balance and joy while living day-to-day. Please be there in the discouraging, painful times when it seems like it is too much to deal with. We ask that You give them comfort, grace, and supportive family and friends. Free them to give themselves permission to rest. For those who are mourning a new diagnosis confronting a family member or friend, we ask for Your comfort. This is particularly hard when their children are not doing well. There are times when it seems the sicknesses never end; the trials are one after another. Give them grace, faith and Your spirit of perseverance in the middle of it all. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
