Today we pray for…

Attendees: Angie and Shari

It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep (Psalm 127:2).

So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his (Hebrews 4:9-10).

Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts. (Hebrews 4:7c).

There are always more things to do and people to care for than hours/energy in a day. Father, we pray that these ladies invite You into their chaos, schedules, and relationships on a daily basis. Even if in spurts, may your Word and thanksgiving be a part of their day. Guard them from having critical spirits. Give them ears to hear Your voice and experience the intimacy of your presence. May they learn to enter into Your REST (emotional, spiritual, and physical). Empower them to walk in obedience in step with your Spirit. May they feel revived at the retreat, and maybe come away with some ideas of how to embrace being Your daughter even if it isn’t an “act” to check off a list (such as devotions). In Jesus’ name, Amen.
