Today we pray for the Prayer Team 

Attendees: Susan, Gina and Penny

He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many. 2 Corinthians 1: 10-12

Dear Heavenly Father,

You love and care for us so well, even rescuing us from cares that sometimes threaten to overtake us. Thank you for the gift of prayer and the prayer team who will meet with our attendees to pray with them.

Please help our retreat attendees live well no matter what challenges they are facing. While we can guess at some of the burdens they may carry, You know exactly what might be discouraging them. Please use the retreat to be an oasis of rest, renewal and rejuvenation for their souls. Please meet them exactly where they are and lead them to where You want them to be. Please help our prayer team to know how best to pray with them.

In Jesus name, Amen

Regional Prayer Focus Nation: Timor Leste

Challenges for Prayer

Foreign missions. Many NGOs assist with Timor’s great needs, but instability yields constant disruptions and evacuations. Significant missions include Christian Vision, Transformation Alliance, YWAM, WEC and Church of the Nazarene. Pray for:

  1. a) Effective strategies that assist with physical needs, counselling and reconciliation. The government’s current emphasis on human development, especially education, opens a door for professionals in these fields to serve. YWAM, JUVEPE and AME opened nursery and/or primary schools; a Filipino school offers language and computer classes. MAF gives aviation support for remote areas. Tentmakers have opportunity to work with the government as lawyers or as educators in universities and national schools.
