Today we pray…
How can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Romans 10:15)
We ask a special blessing on Emily, Faith, Kathy, Carla, Debbie, and Carolyn as they come to do pedicures—which are truly like spiritual foot washings—with color! We ask that they connect well with the women and are able to listen attentively while massaging and carefully painting toenails. Bless every encounter and be pleased with Your servants.
Father, as Kaylie and Elaine interact with the women by doing their make-up, our desire is to affirm their God-given gift of femininity and create a place of warmth, beauty, and laughter. We praise You for Kaylee, Becca, Karen, our hairstylists, and Cindy, Erica, Mary Ellen, and Jeanie our massage therapists! Please grant them strength, endurance, and divine appointments. We pray that the team will be highly sensitive and obedient to the Spirit’s promptings.
We lift up Bolivia to You today, Lord. They are just beginning to experience democracy and freedom. These benefits are only now reaching the Amerindian majority that has long been mired in poverty, exploited, and politically marginalized. We pray for courage and moral integrity for the national leaders as they grapple with the economic inequalities and social ills of society, including the cocaine ‘industry’. (About 50% of the world’s cocaine is grown in Bolivia.) We pray that the Bolivian Christians may live holy, exemplary lives. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
