Today we pray for…

Attendees: Pamela, Jayme, Jess, Sarah, and Susan


He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3).


Dear Heavenly Father,

There isn’t a woman on earth who has not been lonely or had to deal with grief; these emotions are part of life on this earth. however, our attendees set themselves up to be lonely when they left the US to serve you overseas. They had to say premature good-byes and have witnessed and experienced many types of grief as they’ve come alongside hurting people around the world.

You know their grief and You capture their tears. You are always present and nothing can separate You from these women. They are Your beloved and you care for each one when they are lonely and grieving.

Please use the retreat to wrap Your comfort around the deep places of their hurting hearts. May they realize in new ways how beloved they are to You.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
