Day 25 | 30 Days of Prayer | Malaysia
Today we pray for the Attendees Arrival
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. Acts 2:42-43
Dear Heavenly Father,
Feeling welcomed is so very important for our attendees. They will be coming to the retreat from varied backgrounds and places of service, as well as length of time they’ve been overseas. Some will be shy and wondering why they chose to come! Please help that first smile of greeting ease any nervousness they might be feeling and help connect them with new friends. Please teach the volunteers how to be present and care for these precious women attendees and may they love them with Your sweet love.
With the retreat, you are setting a banquet of love for each of our guests. We look forward to seeing how You will use the teaching and fellowship, wonderful meals and special prayer and pampering times to encourage each one.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Challenges for Prayer
The many human rights abuses that occurred during the conflict have not been righted. Justice has not been administered for the bereaved of the 13,000 killed during the conflict – many of them extra-judicially. Not one person has been prosecuted, and the Maoist leadership – now holding Nepal’s reigns of power – would suffer greatly were their excesses and evil deeds brought to light. Unless justice is done and seen to be done, violence will continue to be justified as a means to a political end. Pray for justice and righteousness to be upheld in this country where they have for so long been withheld.
