Today we pray for the Remaining Logistics

Volunteers: Rebecca, Carla, Nada, Debbie and Peggy

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Psalm 127:1

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for the opportunity to serve You. You alone are worthy, and we worship You. As the retreat attendees and volunteer team members make arrangements for their time away from home and family and life’s demands, we pray for an awareness of Your provision for the things that tend to weigh most heavily in our thoughts and in our hearts, those things that can distract us from worshipping and serving You well.

There are so many details to care for and decisions to make when Thrive hosts a retreat. Please help the Thrive team care for all the remaining logistics for the retreat. May each item that needs action be properly cared for in Your time and in Your ways.

Please help each Thrive staff member, volunteer or retreat attendee to see You and follow You well as we commit our ways and plans to you.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Regional Prayer Focus Nation: Laos

Challenges for Prayer

The unreached.

Much of Laos remains unevangelized. The remarkable growth of the church is still dwarfed by the size of the task remaining. Most peoples remain unreached, and the gospel has not easily crossed ethnic barriers. Buddhism and tribal religions are often blended together and prevail throughout; compare 5,000 temples to the 250 church buildings. Pray for the gospel light to shine throughout Laos and to draw many to Christ.
