Psalm 127:1 – Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.


Today, please pray for retreat attendees Cathy and Sharol, and Vada, one of the retreat volunteers


Father, the volunteer team is given a great deal of training as they come together before the retreat begins. Our prayer today is that you, through your Holy Spirit, would guide the training time to provide to each one a rich understanding of the ministry, of their commitment to each other, and details of how you desire to “build your house” during the retreat. We pray that each volunteer would quickly grasp the vision for serving the attendees and each other, and that you would be blessed as a result.


For the attendees we ask that you create in them tender hearts that will receptive to your voice. Whether they participate in the activities or need time alone, we pray that you would create the environment each one needs to be able to hear  your voice clearly and unmistakably. May they be able to respond with a sense of deep thankfulness that they have heard from you.


In Jesus’ name,
