Attendees: Keisa and Chey
We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us (Romans 5:4-5).
We invite You, Holy Spirit to continue to flow unhindered in and through each lady present. Help them to embrace the paradoxes of life with you. Where there is darkness, bring light; confusion, clarity; fear, calm; anger, peace; resentment, forgiveness; wounds, healing; exhaustion, rest; weakness, strength; strongholds, freedom; lethargies, energy. Grant them faith when they are to live with both the negative and positive, or what can be long periods of time in the negative. Free them from being slaves to “comfort”. Reveal yourself to them and enable them to live with a clearer eternal perspective. May You fill them with a renewed sense of hope, faith, being deeply known and loved, and a new vision as they return home.
One would be forgiven to think the word Bangladesh is Bengali for disaster due to the floods and cyclones that seem to plague this small, but crowded country. 170 million people make this one of the densest areas of the world, almost four times that of India. If that wasn’t enough poverty is endemic the government makes the top 10 list for corruption. Pray that a gospel movement among rural tribes and communities would continue to grow. Pray also for a small but growing turning to the Lord by those with a Muslim background.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
