Today we pray for…

Volunteer Prayer Team: Mary, Suey, and Nancy


He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many

(2 Corinthians 1: 10-1).


Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank you for the many ways You love and care for us, even rescuing us from cares that sometimes threaten to overtake us. Thank you for the gift of prayer and the prayer team who will meet with our attendees to pray with them.

Today we ask You to help our attendees live life well no matter what challenges they are facing. Some may have children who struggle with their faith, health issues, or schooling needs. Others may be concerned for aging parents or mourn the distance that separates them from family and friends. While we can guess what burdens they may carry, You know exactly what might be discouraging them. Please use the retreat to be an oasis of rest, renewal, and rejuvenation for their souls. Please meet them exactly where they are and lead them to where You want them to be. Please help our prayer team to know how best to unite with them in prayer.

The Southeast Asian country of Laos is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. With a population of almost 8 million people, mostly Buddhist, the wide diversity of people groups makes for a significant challenge in evangelizing the country. Using media to reach the various groups is one of the more effective methods in reaching this nation. We pray for effective use of the multitude of media venues in presenting the gospel in Laos.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
