Azmera STATESIDE Haven Retreat 2020 | Prayer Calendar (September 28)
Monday, September 28:
B - Pray for her visa application to be approved, so that she can return to Malawi with the borders recently reopening, with limitations. Pray that as she trusts God to provide all things within His timing, there will be joy in the waiting and faith that He is sovereign and good in all things, in all situations. Pray that she would hear reports of ministry in Malawi that would encourage her heart and remind her that God is so much bigger than all of these earthly things.
K - Pray her family’s visas would be renewed so they can return to Asia. Pray that as they are here in the States they would use their time wisely with a good balance of fun, rest and ministry. Pray for the time they spend with their family, that they would see God at work and be encouraged that He is moving all things for salvation and His glory.
M - Pray for her to know fullness of joy in life and ministry, in the time she spends serving others and the time she spends with family. Ask that God would continue to bless the work of her hands, that her heart would continue to be softened towards Him and to what He is working in her life and heart. Pray that she would come before Him with joy and thanksgiving for who He is, what He has done, and what He is continuing to work in her life.
N - Pray for her family as they are here in the States, transitioning and adjusting the flow of things here. Pray for her son as they help him transition and prepare for a different rhythm of life here with getting a driver’s license and going to school; ask that he would find good friends who will encourage him and give him grace as he transitions.
L- Pray for wisdom, knowledge and discernment as she seeks the Lord’s leading in what her next steps need to be - returning overseas, and if so where and with what organization. Ask that she would give herself space and time to sit with God and allow Him to speak truth and guidance over her, and that she would not second-guess His leading but would walk in perfect peace and confidence as He shows her what is next.
C - Pray for her to know that the next steps are in ministry opportunities she has in the community where she lives, that she would be aware and alert to what God is doing and how she can use the gifts He has given her. Ask that He would go before her and bless the time she has with her friend as they travel to the Retreat, and for the stops they will make along the way; pray for protection and safety as they travel and for their friendship to be an encouragement to one another and to those they encounter.
That’s it! This is a wrap on the Stateside Haven Retreat. As always we extend our deepest gratitude to you for the time you have given to pray for the women involved in this retreat. We believe prayer makes all the difference and we love that you choose to join Azmera’s ministry in this way. May you be blessed this week as you spend time with Jesus; may you know the divine intervention of God in the things you are praying for in your own life; may you see His hand at work and know that He is the God of miracles and the God who will always make a way; may you be blessed with the fullness of joy, with the delight of a God who loves you so much, and with the promise of hope.
