Ft. Jackson retreat

Today I'm leaving to go to Ft. Jackson Army base in Columbia, SC for a prayer retreat for the wives of men who are going to be deployed around the world in the coming months. Would you join me in praying that the Lord will speak in a way that He never has to these women? The impact these women could have globally is mind blowing and I pray the Lord will renew them as they prepare for their journeys.

Father God I pray that everyone who will hear your messages at the prayer retreat will believe, adhere to and trust in Jesus as the Christ and that all the women You have called to attend will be there and receive the Word You have for them. Let it be known and understood by all that it is in the name and through the power and authority of Jesus Christ that this retreat is successful.

Lord fill the speakers and control them by Your Holy Spirit. Lord may everyone there know that they have been with Jesus and give Him all the praise and glory for every word that the speakers deliver. Father, in the name of Jesus, I thank You that You have seen the enemy's threats and have granted everyone involved in the planning, Your bond servants, full freedom to declare Your message fearlessly. I thank You Father, that when we pray this weekend, the place in which we are assembled will be shaken, and will be filled with the Holy Spirit, and Your daughters will continue to speak Your Word with freedom, boldness and courage.

Thank You Father that the ladies who will be speaking are of good and attested character and repute, full of Your Spirit and wisdom. Lord I pray that the ladies who hear will not be able to resist the message You have prepared for them and the call You are placing on each of their lives. Grant safety to all of us who will be traveling and begin - even now - to soften harden hearts and make ready the way of Your word! I love you Lord and I thank you for this opportunity to serve You. I ask all of these things in the strong and mighty name that is the only name worthy of glory and honor, Your Son, Jesus. Amen.
