Ghana IFRI just learned of an urgent prayer request regarding our upcoming International Family Retreat in Ghana – yesterday a violent storm hit Cape Coast destroying homes and property. Roofs were blown off and there is a lot of water damage. Cape Coast is where we are planning to have our International Family Retreat. I have personally been to Ghana and I know the needs among special needs families are great - this retreat would bring so much to them including the gospel of Christ. With the retreat only two weeks away, please pray the city will recover quickly and we will be able to bring the love and hope of Jesus to these precious people.

Please pray earnestly for Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his family that the Lords will be done on earth as it is in heaven. That no weapon formed against him or his family will prosper. Pray the LORD will cause his enemies who rise against him to be defeated before him. They shall come out against him one way and flee before him seven ways.Pray that he holds fast to the Lord God in love, and he will deliver him;he will protect him, because he knows his name.When he calls to the Lord, he will answer him; he will be with him in trouble; He will rescue him and honor him with long life he will satisfy him and show him his salvation. Pray for his protection the righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all In Jesus Name Amen

First let us give the Lord thanks for the abundance of all things.Please pray that the Lord would deliver his people from evil men; That the Lord would preserve his people from violent men, who plan evil things in their heart and stir up wars continually. Pray against the spirit of anti Christ,false witness,terrorism hatred and violence. Please pray and intercede without ceasing that God's will be done in the lives of the world's leaders and for our leaders to seek God and listen to Him. Pray that they would be surrounded by godly counsel and, that our leadership would personally know God and the salvation found through faith in Jesus Christ alone. That we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. God can turn the hearts of kings. Earnestly pray that the people of America and its leaders will humble themselves and seek the Lords face and turn from their wicked ways. Pray that the Lord would hear from heaven and forgive our countries sins and heal our land. God Bless America Pray that the Lord would grant peace in America, that we may lie down and no one will make us afraid. That the Lord would remove wild beasts from the land, and that the sword will not pass through our country and that President Trump along with our leaders be filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord, and with justice and might to declare the sins of Gods people. Please pray for revival and that the Lord would pour out his spirit on his servants, throughout the world both men and women. Pray for the peace of Israel. Gods will be done on earth as it is in heaven.In Jesus Name, Amen.

I pray that the dear people of Ghana will gain comfort in this promise, and that Joni's awesome family retreat ministry can proceed on schedule. To God be the glory. Isaiah 41:10 "...fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
