Isaiah 58:11 -The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

 

Today, please pray for Soundra and Anissa, retreat attendees, and retreat volunteer, Miriam.

 

Dear Father, we pray today for the retreat’s Counseling Team and consider it a blessing from your hand that you have provided professional, trained individuals who can provide help and guidance for the needs of the attendees. We ask for team unity for the counselors as they come together prior to the retreat from different parts of the country. Please provide your wisdom and insight as they prepare to listen and discern the attendees’ needs. May they have your heart and eyes as they listen.

 

For the attendees, we ask that you give boldness for those who need counsel. Please help them to reach out and seek help as an avenue for the process of healing and restoration. Father, may they experience your satisfying refreshment through “divine appointments” if they find themselves in “a sun-scorched land”.

 

We lay these requests at your feet and trust in your provision.

 

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen

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."
