Today we pray for Nations Around the World 

Attendees: Kemi and Margaret

These I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” Isaiah 56:7

Dear Heavenly Father,

When we look around our hurting world, it is easy to feel hopeless. Yet, we are not a people without Hope. We thank you for giving us hope by building Your Church and calling all people to Yourself.  We pray for the nations around the world, asking that the church You are building will be strong and faithful. We pray for justice and mercy in the governments and societies so issues of poverty and exploitation, and needs for education, housing, and employment will be met.

As the retreat attendees return to their homes and areas of service, please empower them to do Your Work with the resources You give them. May their hearts be full of courage and good cheer as they serve You in communities that are desperate for You. Thank you for their service. How beautiful are the feet of those who bring Good News!

In Jesus name, Amen
