May the God of hope fill us with joy and fill us up with peace, so that our believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit will brim over with hope (Romans 15:13).

 

Father, thank you for the great team of volunteers that You have directed to come to Bali.    Thank you for Linda and Mary Ellen‘s passion for prayer. Give them keen sensitivity and responsiveness to your Spirit in how/what to pray. Protect them in Jesus’ name, from any interference. (They will meet women one on one for 45 minutes). We pray that we have a hairstylist and massage therapist, and that you grant them strength, endurance and divine appointments.

 

May the team “look out” for each other, being a real source of encouragement; as they model unity to the attendees.  Lord, we pray that the volunteers will be intentional in taking time to slow down and connect deeply with You, asking that You give them healthy margins (spiritually, physically and emotionally) before they leave to give of themselves in ways they never imagined in Bali.

 

India has long been one of the most fascinating countries in the world. Second only to China in population, it dominates south Asia and the Indian Ocean. Though its constitution allows religious freedom, Hindu extremists have been waging a war of hate against Muslims and Christians in the past decade. Yet the Holy Spirit continues to raise Indian Christians who have had a tremendous impact on the social and religious fabric of this country. We pray that this flowering of Christian leadership would continue to grow as well as church movements that are underway.

 

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Dear Debbie,
    I copied and pasted some of your prayers so that I might be able to learn how to pray for my friends. I hope you don’t mind! I love the way you articulate the needs in such beautiful language. I know the Lord looks at my motivation and not the words I use, but somehow I think He must be getting bored with the same words I use over and over again!
    Blessings,
    Amy
