Pray for the Hair Stylists and Massage Therapists - Anna, Sandra, Janie and Robin as they work with their hands to bring refreshment over the bodies of the women they will be serving; ask for the spaces they are working in to be set apart as holy and protected and that their physical acts be seen as tangible love and worship.
Pray for the pedicure and prayer team - Karla, Barb and Beth, as they love on the women through tangible acts of service, that each pair of feet they minister to will feel loved and beautiful. Pray for the conversations and prayer that take place in this room to be filled with the goodness of God, to be encouraging and for hope to be given where it is needed the most.
MA - Pray that the time she has away from ministry and life to attend this Haven Retreat would be lifegiving and refreshing. As she comes to this place to be restored, pray that her heart would be softened towards the things God wants to speak to her, that her ears would be open to what He has to say, and her hands would be open to receive what He longs to give to her. Pray that she would find a deep sense of connection and know afresh how much God loves her and delights in her.
C - She is longing for deeper friendships with women who can relate to her lifestyle - working mom, engaged in missions and family focus. Pray that she would make connections at this retreat that would be lifelong friendships. Ask that she would be willing to be open and vulnerable as the Spirit leads, and trust Him to provide the friendships her heart is longing for. Pray that she would have encounters with Jesus during this time away from home that would shift her perspective and draw her into a deeper faith than she’s known.
J - As she and her husband approach retirement age, pray they would allow God to lead them and give them the wisdom they desire in transitioning well in both Thailand and the US. Ask for provision, guidance and peace as they look ahead to a different pace of life. Pray they would keep their eyes fixed on Jesus and trust Him to continue to use them in new areas of life.
T - Pray for her as she desires to be the wife and mother God has called her to be. Pray for her marriage, that she and her husband would not only work well together, but would learn a new rhythm of communication and intimacy; ask that they would show grace and kindness towards one another, and that there would be opportunities to relax, have fun and laugh together. Pray that God would give them wisdom as parents, as they raise their children in a different culture.
