Day 21 | 30 Days of Prayer | Thailand
Attendees: Marian, Christy, Erika, and Becky
If anyone thirsts, let him COME to me and DRINK. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water (John 7:38).
We are all created with thirst. Only You can truly quench our core. Help us to live dependent upon and interactively with You while engaging in relationships and seeking to be involved in meaningful work. We pray that You will help these ladies identify when they are trying to fill their thirst with things that are substitutes for you.
Being a new mom can feel overwhelming. Add to that having multiple kids, learning a new culture/language, complicated grocery shopping, homeschooling, and perhaps a husband who travels, or works long hours, all without the support system she would have had in the States. Lord Jesus, lead each one to moments of creative rest where she senses your presence. Trying to be supermom, wife, and global woman can drive one into the ground. We pray the opposite will occur, that it drives her to intimate encounters with You. Reach out to each woman in recognizable ways in her possible “dark night of the soul”, renew and deepen her faith, joy, and hope. Create in each one a spirit of thankfulness. Gift these ladies with much laughter during the retreat.
We pray for traveling mercies as the ladies are in route to the hotel. Bring them on time so that they enjoy the entirety of the retreat. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
