Romans 1: 9-11 God, whom I serve in my spirit in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness how constantly I remember you in my prayers at all times; and I pray that now at last by God’s will the way may be opened for me to come to you. I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong.

Today we pray for retreat attendees, Janice and Molly, and retreat volunteer, Jaime.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Our speaker, Peg Forrest, is so eager to share with the retreat attendees and volunteers the messages she believes you have given her. We ask that you anoint her so the words of her mouth will be pleasing to you and only your Truth will be spoken and heard during her times of teaching. Please strengthen Peg and keep her healthy in every way. Encourage her heart and give her courage and boldness, compassion and understanding. Please carry her through these days and help her to receive your comfort for any cares she may be holding in her heart.

Please teach each attendee and volunteer what you are wanting her to learn through Peg’s messages and help them to know how to apply those lessons to their lives in practical ways. May each woman leave the retreat changed because of the spiritual gifts you will give them through Peg.

In Jesus name,

Amen
