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. Give them strength to combat the lies of Satan, accept your delight in them, and rest in your love.  Help them be disciplined and creative as they care for their bodies, work at being healthy and fit while dealing with stress and transition. Help them show this same value to their daughters, as they live in a Muslim culture.

Father, we want to lift up Lisa and Cheryl as they interact with the women through offering color-analysis and make-up. Our desire is to affirm their God-given gift of femininity and create a place of warmth, beauty and laughter.

We also commit to you Lorrie, Christina, and Leigh and ask for favor in the hotel staff’s eyes as they work through many logistics. Grant them strength, grace, and wisdom as they work to develop a unified team of volunteers. Filter every word that is uttered and we pray for Your protection of each attendee and volunteer.

Most of the volunteer staff are on their way to Antalya today. We pray for traveling mercies and that all their luggage make it through with no glitches in customs. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
