Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name.  Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle (Psalm 103:1-3).


We want to lift up Janice, Caityln, Tricia, and Bonnie to You, Lord. We ask that your comfort be felt in tangible ways when they experience loneliness, depression, loss and grief. So often while serving overseas one has to grieve losses long-distance. These losses can be death, news of divorce, or they can be more intangible, as in loss of good medical care, being able to communicate well (foreign language), not “fitting” in, having their kids at home through high school (needing to send them to boarding school) etc.  Lord, we ask You to be their anchor in the middle of their emotions, and pray for your loving arms to hold them. May they each meet someone at the retreat with whom they can share their heart with and feel heard.


In Jesus’ name, Amen.
