Today we pray for…

Attendees: Tiffany and Gretchen

 

For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers

(Philippians 1:14-16).

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

Team dynamics can be tricky though we know You want us to live and work in love and unity. At the furlough retreat, there may be some who have ministry teams that are dysfunctional or lacking key members. You know with which disagreements or broken relationships the attendees may be struggling. We ask for reconciliation where needed, for Your godly wisdom to deal with divisions or differing perspectives, and for harmony and peace if teams seem to resemble a war zone more than a ministry team. Please bring humility, compassion, true friendship, and unity to each team represented at the furlough retreat. As the women enjoy the tranquility of The Charter of Beaver Creek, may You teach them how to live well with their teammates.

In Chad Islam has increased in the last three decades and animist peoples are turning to Islam. However, there is an increasing number of Muslims desiring to know more of Christ.  We pray for continued development of resources that are culturally relevant. We pray for Christians, who typically are trained to minister to animist peoples, to be well-equipped to sensitively and effectively share the gospel with Muslims.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
