Dear Lord Jesus, precious Savior,
My sister in Christ begins the deepest part of her journey and I pray in your name that during these times she puts her trust in you. There will be times of doubt. There will be times she looks at decisions and wonders if they were of her, or of you.
Your Holy Spirit will provide her with everything she needs, equip her for the journey.
In these days of preparation, cover her with your angels, surround her and her family with the love, peace, and grace that only You can provide. For it is in Your name we lift up those who come to learn more about You and Your love be it participant or team member.
Lord of all, I ask you to bring compassion and understanding through the gate and let it rain down over those who are a part of this blessed gathering. May those leading shine Your light so that even the darkest are bright.
We who are sinful in nature raise our voices to praise You who reign in glory. Christ, our Lord, our God, our Redeemer, our Savior hear us as we sing
…And I hear the voice of many angels sing,
“Worthy is the Lamb”
And I hear the cry of every longing heart,
“Worthy is the Lamb”… (I Will Rise, Chris Tomlin)
And, for you, my sister…keep this in your heart. We who pray steadfastly for your journey offer ourselves for the glory of God the Father in this upcoming weekend. Fix your eyes on Christ and you will not misstep.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
With all that is in me, I pray to the Lord God for you.
