Today we pray for…

Speaker: Debbie Suits


God, whom I serve in my spirit in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness how constantly I remember you in my prayers at all times; and I pray that now at last by God’s will the way may be opened for me to come to you. I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong (Romans 1: 9-11).


Dear Heavenly Father,

Our speaker, Debbie Suits, is eager to share with the attendees and volunteers the messages she believes You have given her. We ask that You anoint her so the words of her mouth will be pleasing to You. May only Your truth will be spoken and heard during her times of teaching. Please strengthen Debbie and keep her healthy in every way. Encourage her heart and give her courage and boldness, compassion and understanding. Please carry her through these days and help her to receive Your comfort for any cares she may be holding in her heart.

Please teach each attendee and volunteer what You are wanting her to learn through Debbie’s messages and help them to know how to apply those lessons to their lives in practical ways. May each woman leave the retreat changed because of the spiritual gifts You will give them through Debbie.

One of the world’s economic superpowers, Japan faces social challenges that can seem insurmountable. Materialism runs deep and many young people are seeking to fill their lives with the latest electronic gadgetry. In a culture that deeply values uniformity, choosing to follow Jesus and become his disciple is a courageous decision. We pray for the churches of Japan, usually no more than 50, and their commitment to outreach and spiritual growth.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
