Today we pray for…

Attendees: Janice and Bonnie

We pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen each of these ladies with power through his Spirit in their inner being, so that Christ may dwell in their hearts through faith. … May they have the power … to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ …  Do so in a way that is immeasurably more than all they could ask or imagine according to His power that is at work within each of them!  Ephesians 3:14–20 (paraphrased)

These ladies are answering His call. One attendee said “Pray for a renewed spirit; I told my husband a few months ago, ‘I’m tired and sometimes I feel like I don’t want to do this anymore. But I know I’m where God needs/wants me to be.’” The basics of life take more time to do than Stateside. Missing the ease and familiarity of one’s passport culture can add emotional fatigue. The sheer amount of work these ladies are trying to accomplish and needs they are trying to meet, while caring for themselves and their families is overwhelming. Father God, we pray for abundant, deep, renewing answer to the above prayer for each lady at the retreat. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
