Day 4 | 30 Days of Prayer | Colorado
Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” (Matthew 8:20)
Thank you for providing a place to come away with you in Colorado for our retreat location. You have given us the perfect place to come away and be with You! Thank You for giving us a retreat setting that will be safe and comfortable for us to enjoy during our time together. We’re grateful for the staff that will serve us and their desire to serve well. May we bless them as they care for us!
May our rest be deep and may our guests find they can really relax in our beautiful retreat setting. May each of us be attentive to You, listening for You, listening to You as we explore the grounds and take in Your beauty.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Attendee Country of Service Prayer Focus Nation: China
Challenges for Prayer:
China remains officially atheist, and Communist Party members number well over 70 million. But the Christian population has eclipsed this number (it is also far outstripped by Chinese Buddhists). Increasing numbers of Party members are believers. Pray that the atheism promoted for so long – and now so assiduously propagated in the education system – will finally be revealed as hollow and deceptive lies. Pray also that all followers of Christ working in state structures might walk faultlessly and be a redemptive force within the government.
