Refuge for Women - June 2013 Prayer Report

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs in the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.  Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”  (Matthew 5:1-12 – The Beatitudes)

Pray with us now:  Heavenly Father, we plead the blood of Jesus over this time of prayer and ask only your Holy Spirit would come close and prosper.  Lord, we stand in awe of all that you are doing in and through this ministry to heal, redeem and set free these women, your daughters!  Almighty God we ask for an extra measure of your agape love as we know that on our own, we can’t love the unlovable, but with your power living in us, we can!  Thank you Jesus for the teaching of the beatitudes; may we each strive to live a life that exemplifies them.  Thank you for stirring our hearts to pray and battle on behalf of this ministry and the guests we serve!  We speak healing, peace and a deep intimate relationship over each of the guests, in Jesus name.  Praise you for the women you are preparing to send us right now!  We ask your continued protection over this ministry and a holy wall of fire to surround it!  We humbly come before you with hearts overflowing at the miracles you perform every day – thank you for opening our eyes to see them!  Father God we pray all these things in your son Jesus Christ’s holy name, Amen!
