This afternoon we video-conferenced with our staff members in Brazil. Our office fasts and prays for our staff members on the 1st and 15th of each month.
God we come to you and thank you that you bring hope into the darkness. Be with us now, today and always.
We are thankful for your work and provision at the Esther Project. Continue to guide the staff and women as they work to find rhythms as a community together. Lord, hear our prayer.
Be with our staff as they invite various community members into the Esther Project on Fridays. We wait with anticipation for the new ways the women will be able to express themselves. We wait with anticipation for the new relationships that will be built. Lord, hear our prayer.
For the ladies who visit the Esther Project. That they are able to call this place their own. Lord, hear our prayer.
Guide and give the ladies discernment in their spiritual walk. Lord, hear our prayer.
For the ongoing relationships the staff have with children and young adults who are living on the streets. Lord, hear our prayer.
For the young woman the staff knows. Be with her and her health. Comfort her in her sickness. Lord, hear our prayer.
For our newest North American staff member. Give her protection in the favela. Guide her in finding her place in community. Provide a church home for her. And continue to teach her in language study. Lord, hear our prayer.
For our Brazilian partners. Continue to provide for them in support both relationally and financially. Lord, hear our prayer.
For the Nichols family. That you guide them in how to order their days. For grace during the insanity of living. And for your continued presence in their lives. Lord, hear our prayer.
