Volunteer Counselors: Patty, Jessica, Dawn, and Nadine

How blessed is God! And what a blessing he is! He’s the Father of our Master, Jesus Christ, and takes us to the high places of blessing in him. Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son (Ephesians 1:3-6 The Message).

Father, may each woman feel the gaze of your love on her, You being the lifter of her guilt, shame, and failures, and realize this time is Your gift to her. Through Jesus, may she fully receive You.

Lord, today we want to ask for Your special blessing for our volunteer counselors, prepare their hearts and lives for the task awaiting them. May You lead them to connect quickly and deeply with the women; empower their listening, understanding, compassion, touch, and words. We pray that the women feel “safe” with them and are able to share their real issues quickly. We ask for wisdom, discernment, and insight for the counselors, and that they be highly sensitive and responsive to the leading of the Spirit. May the women feel heard and loved; leave with hope, some healing, new insights, and resources. Let each encounter be glorifying to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
