The Lord God is with you, he is mighty to save.  He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17).


Inner beauty is down played in many of the countries where these ladies are serving.  Abba, would you affirm their unique beauty. Help them be disciplined and creative as they care for their bodies, be healthy and fit while dealing with stress and transition.


Father, we want to lift up Debbie and her helper as they interact with the women through offering color-analysis and make-up, affirming the women’s unique qualities. Our desire is to affirm their God-given gift of femininity and create a place of warmth and laughter.


Malaysia is a country of roughly 30 million people, located on the peninsula jutting south from mainland Thailand and the north part of the island of Borneo.  The official religion is Islam claiming over 60% of the population and growing in aggressively seeking to apply sharia law on a national level and state level.  The church is steadily growing in number and in wisdom in how to minister in an Islamic nation. We pray that the networking between churches and groups would continue to grow.  We also ask that conservative Islam would be checked in its push for total control over the lives of Malaysians and the huge Chinese and Indian populations.


In Jesus’ name, Amen.
