May the God of hope fill us (the attendees and volunteers) with joy and fill us up with peace, so that our believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit will brim over with hope (Romans 15:13).

Thank you for Nancy, Carla, and Mary’s passion for prayer. Give them keen sensitivity and responsiveness to your Spirit in how/what to pray. Protect them, in Jesus’ name, from any interference. (They will meet with women one on one for 45 minutes). We praise you for Vada and Karen, our hairstylists, and Elaine, Paula, and Amanda our massage therapists! Please grant them strength, endurance, and divine appointments.

May the volunteer team “look out” for each other, being a real source of encouragement; as they model unity to the attendees. Lord, we pray that the volunteers will be intentional in taking time to slow down and connect deeply with You, asking that You give them healthy margins (spiritually, physically, and emotionally) before they leave to give of themselves in ways they never imagined. We cover them in the powerful name of Jesus.

Just the name Amsterdam conveys for many an example of secularism gone wild. The irony is that the Netherlands has a rich history in religious freedom and overseas ministry. This tradition of freedom has led to an acceptance of any lifestyle and a “tolerance” to all things except towards the absolutes that mark Biblical Christianity. There is a great need for an effective means in communicating the gospel in an environment impacted by secularization, New Age, the occult, eastern cults, and a growing Islamic presence. We pray especially for creative and persistent outreach to the Dutch youth and that the Holy Spirit would break through the walls of indifference and apathy.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
