Today we pray for…
Attendees: Sadie and Cameron
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
We pray today for the attendees, for the circumstances they are facing, whatever they might be. Enable them to be confident in Your truth, expectantly waiting to see how You will redeem any difficult situation. Revive their trust, faith, and love in You. May the retreat be a safe sanctuary where they can share their heart with others.
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 heart’s yearnings. They matter to You. “Thou hast…put my tears in thy bottle…” (Psalm 56:8).
The small country of Belize, bordering Mexico and Guatemala, has seen the growth of the church to 20% of the population. The challenge is that there’s a plethora of evangelical groups that don’t always work well together. Pray that groups will grow in their desire to coordinate outreach and discipleship.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
