Today we pray for…

Attendees: Belinda and Carolyn

You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light (I Peter 2:9).

Lord Jesus, we want to lift up these ladies and ask that You deliver them from any evil plan of the Devil to rob them of life, to steal away their uniqueness and giftedness, to compromise the path You’ve called them to walk, or to destroy the person You created them to be. We ask that the fruit of the Spirit grow in them daily.  May they find their identity in You, view themselves as Your instruments, and know that they are complete in You.  May their commitment to being who You created them to be enable them to grow daily in confidence and Holy Spirit boldness.  We ask that while they are on furlough You will orchestrate special times with friends that value them for who they are and not for what they do (i.e. being “the global worker”). Lord, we pray that while at the retreat, they are affirmed, feeling free to be just “ordinary women” without the mantel of “global worker”.

We also want to praise You for the dramatic growth in the number of evangelical churches in the Philippines in the last 30 years and for their increased spiritual unity.  We are also excited about the 300,000-plus Filipino intercessors who have committed themselves to pray for the nation.  As Filipino Evangelicals have multiplied, so, too, have the challenges.  We pray for the spiritual health of the Church.  We ask that there be solid discipleship for the new believers and pray against complacency. We praise You that training and discipling new leaders is a priority. We thank you also that they have become a significant sending church.  Thank you, Lord, for the work you are accomplishing in the world.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
