Attendees: Attendees: Gail, Jenifer, and Marysol
Blessed is the [woman] man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is in the Lord. For [she] he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit. Jeremiah 17:7–8 NKJV
Father, we ask You to visit these women with grace in their seasons of transitions. We pray that the barren landscape of trial will become fertile soil for new growth. Gracious God, revive their spirit and restore their laughter. May they find You in their pain and trust You in their waiting. Holy One who redeems all things, meet them powerfully as they journey through a “Land Between” [Manion, Jeff, The Land Between: Finding God in Difficult Transitions]. We pray that You free them from a spirit of fear.
We come before You today, Lord, on behalf of the country of Honduras. The government is seeking to establish genuine democratic rule but is hampered by a culture of crime, by institutional violence with the military and vigilante death squads closely linked, and also by a corrupt judicial system that protects the privileged and is open to “influence”. Leadership training is now the vital need to supply the growing number of congregations We ask that the trainers give biblical knowledge and be models for spiritual ministry.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
