Today we pray…


Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods (Psalm 95: 1-3).


Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the many ways You have blessed the 2016 Thrive furlough retreat. You have encouraged the hearts of women who serve You around the world. Women who desired to be Your hands to love the attendees saw You work in and through them to do more than they could have imagined. You provided wonderful, Biblical teaching; worship that led the women into Your presence; small group times that helped the women process what they were hearing and build special relationships; and counseling, prayer, and pampering opportunities that gave practical ways for the women to be loved. Thank You for those who sponsored the global women, for those who gave so the volunteers could serve, and for those who faithfully prayed. We celebrate You, Dear God, for all You have done!

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
