Today we pray for…

Attendees: Judy and Julie 

For though we (they) live in the world, we (they do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we (they) fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. May they use their powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, intentionally fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. May they use their tools at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity (II Corinthians 10 :3-5, The Message). 

We pray that the ladies will find the retreat to be a sanctuary of rest from this warfare. We ask that You guide, protect, and convict them where sin is trying to take root. Strengthen them in battle when Satan attempts to gain a foothold in their hearts. Through Your Spirit, make them sensitive to enemy encroachment; may they run to You to be their stronghold and refuge in time of trouble. May the cry of their heart be cleanse me from secret faults (Psalm 19:12). Deliver them from every evil work and preserve them for Your heavenly kingdom. Give them strength to combat the lies that infiltrate their thoughts, and replace them with Your truth. Many of the women live in areas where witchcraft is prevalent. We pray for protection on each woman and their families, along with the strength to fight. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
