Day 1 | 30 Days of Prayer | Dubai
I invite you to join me in the opportunity of empowering global women serving God in the Middle East and other nearby countries by lifting them up (about 3-5 minutes a day) to the One who is “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
We will begin each day with a verse on which to meditate. Then, throughout the 30 days, we’ll pray for every attendee and staff by name, lifting up requests common to women in this area of the world, and finally, praying for each of the 25 countries the attendees represent.
There is no greater gift you can give these women that will restore their souls and impact the Kingdom than sincere prayers on their behalf.
Praying with you,
Author, 30 Days of Prayer
_______________ DAY 1- ADOPTION/HOMESCHOOL_______________
May these women trust in the Lord with all their hearts and lean not unto their own understanding; in all their ways acknowledge Him and He will make their paths straight.
Today we pray for attendees: Amber, Jessica, Amy, Kaela, Katie, and Kimberly
Adoption is a beautiful, complex thing. Lord, we pray for insight, grace, love, perseverance, and emotional energy as the women and their husbands embrace a new member into the family (sometimes in addition to their biological children). We pray for healing of wounds, emotional attachment, a deep sense of being loved for these children, and unity in their families. May each become Your child.
Many of the attendees homeschool their children. (Lord, instill these students with a love of learning that will fill the gaps that may occur in the curriculum.) Juggling multiple ages, various learning styles, and sometimes learning disabilities—while having the cultural (and ministry) need to be hospitable and available—is a daunting task. Balance between family and ministry roles is a continual area of tension. Father, grant them an abundance of grace, humor, wisdom, perseverance, and strength.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
