________________________ DAY 7 – TRANSITIONS________________________

Blessed is the [woman] man who trusts in the Lord,  and whose hope is in the Lord. For [she] he shall be like a tree planted  by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear  when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious  in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit.

Jeremiah 17:7–8 NKJV

Today we pray for attendees: Betsy, Caitlin, Joyce, and Marigold

Father, we ask You to visit these women with grace in their seasons of transitions. We pray that the barren landscape of trial will become fertile soil for new growth. Gracious God, revive their spirit and restore their laughter. May they find You in their pain and trust You in their waiting. Holy One who redeems all things, meet them powerfully as they journey through a “Land Between” [Manion, Jeff, The Land Between: Finding God in Difficult Transitions]. We pray that You free them from a spirit of fear.

Thank you, Lord, that the Church in Kazakhstan is young, alive, and growing strong!  We praise You for the growth, particularly among the young people. We ask that this numerical growth continue and that Your Church may mature quickly. We pray that there be preaching of sound doctrine, holy living, and a global work vision. We thank you that the Kazakh New Testament is now complete and we ask that the Old Testament be done soon. May You guide the wide and wise distribution of all biblical materials.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
