2 Corinthians 1: 10-12 He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.

Please pray today for Marlene and Christine, retreat attendees.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank you for the many ways you love and care for us, even rescuing us from cares that sometimes threaten to overtake us. Thank you for the gift of prayer and that we can pray for one another. Today we ask you to help our retreat attendees live life well no matter what challenges they are facing. Some may have children who struggle with their faith, health issues or schooling needs. Others may be concerned for aging parents or mourn the distance that separates them from family and friends. While we can guess what burdens they may carry, you know exactly what might be discouraging them. Please use the retreat to be an oasis of rest, renewal and rejuvenation for their souls. Please meet them exactly where they are and lead them to where you want them to be.

In Jesus name,
