Today we pray for…

Retreat attendees: Debbie and Bonnie

There is now NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:1-2).

I’m almost positive everyone knows this verse – however, I’m almost equally as sure that many of us (and the attendees) live with an ever-present sense of guilt, shame and not being/doing “enough.”  Jesus, we ask that as we “confess our sins, He is faithful and just and WILL forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (I John 1:9).  May we hear, “I forgive you,” and may we ACCEPT that forgiveness, and walk then in freedom and obedience by the power of the Spirit.  Holy Spirit, during this retreat, would you cleanse each of the ladies and free them to clearly reflect You, live in truth and abundance for Your name’s sake.

We pray for mental, spiritual, and physical protection for every lady as they return home, and ask that they do so more fully in love with You.

One would be forgiven to think the word Bangladesh is Bengali for disaster due to the floods and cyclones that seem to plague this small but crowded country. 170 million people make this one of the densest areas of the world, almost 4 times that of India. If that wasn’t enough, poverty is endemic the government makes the top 10 list for corruption. We ask that a gospel movement among rural tribes and communities would continue to grow. We pray also for a small but growing turning to the Lord by those with a Muslim background. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
