Today we pray for…

Attendees: Cindy, Betsy, and Jeanne


Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest”

(Mark 6:31).


Dear Heavenly Father,

Women around the world are stretched thin. Striving to meet the demands of the roles of workers, friends, wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, and neighbors stretches women out of capacity and comfort zones. The attendees find this to be even more real while living cross-culturally and doing life in another language.

We humbly ask that the retreat may be a time of deep rest and renewal for the global women who may be coming tired and in need of rest. For those who feel burnt out or on the edge of their capacity, please let the retreat be an oasis of peace and quiet for their souls. Please help the volunteer team offer the gift of quiet and gracious hospitality and provide a restful setting.

Thank You that You invite us to come away with You and get some rest. You know our deepest needs and daily You meet them.

Mexico is more than just border towns and has an interior rich in history and in great need of dedicated global workers. There still remain many areas where evangelical work is in its infancy or non-existent. We pray for more laborers to head into the remote areas of Mexico as well as the unreached urban centers. We pray that they will persevere in the face of increasing crime and intimidation.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
