Today we pray for…

Attendees: Tina, Nicole, and Rachel

Are you tired?  Worn out?  Burned out?  Come to me.  Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.  I’ll show you how to take a real rest.  Learn the unforced rhythms of grace (Matthew 11:28 The Message).

Many of the women are returning Stateside after intense experiences overseas in ministry.  Holy Spirit, please lead these ladies to rest, renewed vision and purpose, and saturate them in your grace.  Encourage them during the retreat with hopeful encounters of others who have found healing and are currently living life by “the unforced rhythms of grace”.

The church in Russia has suffered the most severe and sustained persecution of any nation in recent history.  Thank you, Lord, for Your protection and for enabling Your Church to survive, grow, and triumph in the end.  Father, we now pray for the church’s flexibility, adaptability, and cultural relevance.  There is a need for practical holiness and integrity in daily life.  Unity is needed among the various Christian groups.  Lord, raise up more godly leaders and sound preaching of the Bible.  We commit to You, Lord, the long-term global workers and ask for their issue of visas, local acceptance, wise deployment, and protection from violence.  Thank you.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
