Psalm 40:5 – Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.

 

Today, please pray for retreat attendees Sharon, Paula and Narcidel as well as retreat staff April (Thrive), Peg and Georgann (volunteers).

 

Lord, we genuinely marvel at your goodness and the way you have provided for us when we have had needs, or longed to hear from you. Today we thank you for providing a retreat setting with such breathtaking surroundings and comfortable accommodations for us to enjoy during our time together. We’re grateful for the staff that will serve us – thank you for their heart of service. We pray that the retreat attendees will experience restful sleep, safety and an environment that is ripe for hearing from you during their time of retreat. We entrust these things to you with a heart of thanksgiving!

 

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen

About the author

As a former missionary and current pastor's wife, Jill thrives when she is able to come alongside missionaries. Her ministry with PD Ministries and Thrive allows Jill to use her organizational and leadership skills as well as her flair for beauty to encourage missionary women. Jill loves to get away with her husband to mountain top retreats and to visit her far-away grandchildren. Her adventurous spirit has taken her para sailing, scuba diving, she has eaten strange foods like scorpions and crickets, and traversed the Amazon's Chanchamayo River. Her creativity shows itself in her pottery and her spirit is renewed by reading, keeping a quiet heart, and coming alongside others as a teacher, coach, mentor and friend. She says, " I get ecstatic watching God speak in specific situations and issues through His Word and resolve challenges in a way that makes it clear HE's at work! It is exciting to watch His Word literally come alive in the midst of very real concerns."
