Isaiah 41:10 – So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

 

Today we pray for Patricia, a retreat volunteer and Myrna and Linda retreat attendees.

 

Father, travel days, although sometimes exciting, can also create stress on many different levels. We pray today for both the volunteers and the attendees who will be coming from all over North America. We ask that you would give them safety and keep them alert on the roads, and for those who are flying, may they make their flights and connections without any difficulties or delays. Help them to sense your presence and care for them as they make their way to the retreat. We’re thankful that you are bringing together an amazing “orchestra” of ladies to serve and be served during this time you’ve planned for us. We lean on you to uphold us with your righteous right hand.

 

In Jesus’ name,

Amen
