Today we pray for…

Attendees: Jodi, Gretchen, Amy, and Monica


And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people (Ephesians 6:18).


Dear Heavenly Father,

No matter who we are or where we live and work, we are broken people. We carry in our hearts regret for things done or undone, said or not said. The women coming to the retreat are no different and their hearts need Your encouragement, healing, and hope. If there are struggles with their devotional times, if they are wrestling with suffering and pain that seems unfair, if they’ve seen too much, lived too hard, cried into the night, please use this retreat to wrap them in Your love, care, and comfort. Please help them to lay their burdens, their hurts, and their disappointments at Your feet. Please remind those who’ve forgotten the blessings You’ve showered on them. Please cause thanksgiving to bubble in their spirits as they lift Your name in worshipful praise, listen to godly teaching, and enjoy being loved and pampered by the volunteers. We ask that You will help them to meet You right where they are and experience all You have to give them during these special retreat days.

Jamaica has a great Christian heritage and many of the leadership positions are held by national leaders.  It has one of the highest number of churches per square mile.  However, most Jamaican Christians rarely attend church or live out their faith in their daily lives.  We pray for integrity and true faith for Christians in Jamaica.  We pray for renewal and reformation.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
