________________________ DAY 24 – VOLUNTEERS_______________________

The Lord God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Zephaniah 3:17

Today I/we pray for volunteers: Debbie and Rachel (colors); Karisa, Melanie, and Tami (hair); Kim (fitness), Allison, Carrie, and Paula (massage).

Abba, would you affirm each woman’s unique beauty. Give them strength to combat the lies of Satan, accept your delight in them, and rest in your love. Help them be disciplined and creative as they care for their bodies and work at being healthy and fit while dealing with stress and transition.

Father, as volunteers interact with the women through offering color-analysis and make-up, our desire is to affirm their God-given gift of femininity and create a place of warmth, beauty, and laughter. Let the hair cuts be an obvious “great hair day” and may they feel beautiful. Fitness is a part of being healthy, may volunteers be able to offer some great tips to encourage the ladies. As some attendees receive massages, let your Spirit loosen the hardness that they may be holding onto. May the volunteers be your hands, and feel with Your heart.

Lord, very few of the Balkan countries escaped the atrocities of the 1990’s and Montenegro was no exception. This small country between Serbia and the Adriatic Sea is mostly Orthodox with about 12% Muslim. Evangelicals number less than 500 in a population of 650,000. I/we pray that evangelicals would be a light of hope and forgiveness in a land that is short on both.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
