Today we pray …

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6–7).

Father, You have given us a heart of love for our children. Many of the women who have attended the retreat say that sending their kids off to college in the US is one of the hardest sacrifices they make in being cross-cultural workers. It is a time of difficult transitions for the entire family. These young adults are re-entering their passport country but not necessarily one that they are at ease in (as they have spent the majority of their lives in their parent’s country of service). Parenting these young adults long-distance is a real challenge. Lord, we ask for Your comfort when anxieties overwhelm them. Guard their minds with Your truth and may they have Your strength to reject lies that Satan would use to paralyze them. We ask for consistent and honest communication. Please provide healthy relationships and an intimate holistic journey in Jesus for each of these young adults. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
