Today we pray for…

Attendee: Donna

May she open her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness be on her tongue (Proverbs 31:26).

Father, we pray that the older women age with grace. Many are “empty nesters” who are seeking Your direction as to in whom/what to invest.  Direct their paths, may they soak in the reality of being your daughter. As they pour into younger ladies (or are on a team where younger ladies have joined), may it be with a youthful spirit, joy, adventure, and openness to new ideas. Lead them to invite the ladies to learn from their rich experiences. We ask that the younger women be willing to listen and learn.  Bless them with laughter, forgiveness, and grace when they clash.

Many of the attendees are in route to Fortaleza.  We ask for safety, health, and travel mercies. Father, may they be fully present at the retreat, allowing the caregivers to be with their kids, and letting go of their “to do list”.  Guard them from distractions. Bring every woman you desire to the retreat – we ask that they arrive on time and are able to stay the entire time. As the retreat starts tomorrow, cover the volunteers with your peace and give them confidence You will lead them. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
