Philemon 1:21-22 – Confident of your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I ask. And one thing more: Prepare a guest room for me, because I hope to be restored to you in answer to your prayers.

We pray today for retreat attendees Beverly and Lindsey.

Dear Heavenly Father,

The Furlough Retreat Volunteers have come from all over North America to care for women who serve you around the world. For months, they have prayed for this retreat and the attendees. Their greatest desire is to bring you honor and glory by loving, pampering, listening to and carefully holding the attendees’ stories in their hearts and prayers. Please strengthen the volunteer team in their service to you and the attendees, please encourage their hearts when they can’t see what you are doing or how you are using them, and, please keep Yourself the focus of their ministry. Please keep them healthy and strong, please give them good nights’ sleep, please keep their relationships with team members and those they serve healthy and pleasing to you. Please help their communication to be without gossip and full of loving words and encouragement. Please use their hands and feet to be the tools to bring your love to the attendees.

In Jesus name,
