Topic: Life-giving connections
Today we pray for Attendees: Stacy, Anne, Archana, and Jill
“Moses’ arms soon became so tired he could no longer hold them up. So Aaron and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side of Moses, holding up his hands. So his hands held steady until sunset. As a result, Joshua overwhelmed the army of Amalek in battle.” (Exodus 17:12)
Fighting spiritual battles can be exhausting, and lonely. Lord, we ask that each of the ladies find a place to sit (or lay) and rest (they’ll be in a gorgeous setting). We ask for your favor in giving us beautiful weather. May they feel their arms being held up by their sisters in Christ, ( in prayer, the Word, listening, laughing, crying together) so that they can be victorious in their battles. Give them renewed perspective, love, hope and faith, along with significant life giving connections with someone while at the retreat.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Regional Prayer Focus Nation: Albania
Challenges for Prayer
a) Scripture translation. There are three complete translations of the Bible in Albanian; one literal, one paraphrased and one Catholic. The NT was recently retranslated into modern Albanian in a collaborative project of Orthodox, Catholics and Protestants; a new OT translation is underway in the same project. Pray for accuracy, timely completion and for widespread use of the Scriptures.
b) Religious literature from many faiths flooded the country upon the fall of Communism. EHC blanketed the country with Christian literature twice. Christian books are published by Vernon, Karte e Pende and Shigjeta as well as by several missions, but there are very few Christian bookstores. Pray for translation of useful Christian books and literature and for their impact.
