April 23: The Azmera ROMANIA Haven Retreat (online with Velvet Ashes) starts today! Pray that as God has gone before this time, that those who step into the space will know His presence and feel the welcome of the Holy Spirit as they choose to set aside time from their days to enter a place of rest, refreshment and renewal.
Pray for the women attending, especially those who had hoped to be in Romania this weekend, that in the midst of this unrest worldwide, they would be able to find a place of rest and peace in their own homes, as they set apart this time to spend online with others, and alone with their Savior. Pray that God would protect each physical area that the women are - from distraction, from feeling a negative uncomfortableness, and from feeling less-than. Ask that the Holy Spirit be heavy in each room where the women are making this retreat their own.
Pray for the Romania Connection Crew and Azmera team/staff as they connect with one another and with the women in their groups, that there would be unity of heart and mind. Ask that they would be able to step away from any personal agenda and be given a deep longing to see the Holy Spirit move and work in power with freedom and authority. Pray they would be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading and trust Him to give what they need as the need arises.
