The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. (Isaiah 58:11)

Father God, You are the Healer. Many women are suffering with chronic illnesses and pain – ranging from cancer, migraines, back issues, anxiety attacks, malaria, Dengue fever and chronic fatigue syndrome. Not feeling well is demotivating, yet often a reality. Help these ladies to give themselves grace (and their teammates’ understanding), while relying on the truth that “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9). Several also have children who are ill and the medical care is scarce. Give wisdom to call a medical plane in for evacuation when necessary. Lord, only You know how to lead them and grant them peace. We ask that the above verse be a reality in their lives as only You can make happen.
We recognize, Father, that no matter what continent you live on or what your station in life is, infertility and miscarriage are very painful. Lord, we ask that You comfort the women who live with this reality day in and day out. Please give them grace and strength to deal with the complicated medical terminology in a different language, learn first-hand how different cultures grieve (not usually our way) and deal with unintentional hurtful, thoughtless comments of others. Abba Father, please remind them today that You really care about them. You know their secret thoughts and feel their hearts’ yearnings. They matter to You. “Thou hast…put my tears in thy bottle…” (Psalm 56:8).
