Today we pray for…

Attendees: Amy M., Fiona, Liane, Melissa, and Stephanie

 

Create in these ladies a pure heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within them. Restore to them the joy of your salvation and grant them a willing spirit to sustain them. Psalm 51:1 (paraphrased)

 

The global worker community can feel small. Many teams are comprised of various nationalities (thus different ways of processing, communicating, and problem solving), backgrounds, giftedness, with a variety of ministry focuses. Singles, married, veteran, and newcomers make for some interesting interactions. Lord, for those who are feeling isolated (emotionally and/or physically), please help these women give themselves grace and extend grace to others. While at the retreat, give each attendee something unique that confirms You know and care for them.

Father, we lift up Mozambique to You. It is one of the world’s poorest nations. Intense suffering has created spiritual hunger and we thank you for the congregations of indigenous Christians that have mushroomed over all the country. Illiteracy, lack of Scripture, legalism, syncretism, and lack of understanding of Biblical repentance, faith, and new birth is widespread. Yet we thank You God that the desire for teaching and help, wisely and tactfully given, is immense. Lord, please direct and bless the teaching of the various seminaries and Bible colleges, as well as the informal training. May outreach be done in the northern part of the country where there are many unreached peoples. We pray for perseverance in learning Portuguese and local languages, health, safety, and fruitfulness for Your workers.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
