I invite you to join me in the opportunity of empowering global women serving God in Cape Town and other nearby countries by lifting them up to the One who is Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

We will begin each day with a verse on which to meditate. Then, throughout the 30 days, we’ll pray for every attendee, volunteer, and staff by name, lifting up requests common to women in this area of the world, and finally, praying for each of the countries the attendees represent.

There is no greater gift you can give these women that will restore their souls and impact the Kingdom than sincere prayers on their behalf.
Praying with you,

Debbie Suits

Author, 30 Days of Prayer


Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37–39


Father, may Bethany, Danya, and Lorrie experience Your Spirit’s direction, strength, unity, and grace as they prepare for the retreat, lead the volunteer team and work out the logistics of the retreat.

May the volunteer team “look out” for each other, be a real source of encouragement, and model unity and joy to the attendees. Lord, we pray that the volunteers will be intentional in taking time to slow down and connect deeply with You. We ask that You give them healthy margins—spiritually, physically, and emotionally—as they prepare for the retreat to give of themselves in ways they never imagined.

We commit the retreat to You, Father. Please help each woman who is coming to the retreat with the refreshment they need.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
