At Thrive, one of our foundational values is prayer. We care deeply about the prayers of our global community, and we love to celebrate answered prayers with the Thrive family. This Prayer and Praise Wall is a place for you to share your prayer requests and notes of thanksgiving with other women serving around the world, as we recognize the incredible nature of God’s relationship with us, and His care for us as His children.
Please be aware the Prayers and Praises on this page, once approved for posting, will be publicly visible. You have the option to post using your name or anonymously. Please also be conscious of the safety and security of women serving overseas in some regions, and refrain from using another person’s name or including potentially sensitive details without that person’s permission.
I absolutely love prayer. I want every different part of the body to pray for me. Isn't it amazing that we have all different giftings? We are made so differently! I have always asked for a deeper revelation of His love for me and to me. I know that when He is revealed, so am I because of my union with Him. I want a deeper revelation of my identity as His bride. I want to learn how to play. I want childlike abandon to fully engage with each person that is in front of me. I would love the gift to be able to talk to people in other languages. I want my words to weighted and not fall to the ground because they are speaking from the Kingdom. I want to walk out of complete freedom. I want deeper revelation of how deep and wide and long is His Love. Himself. I just want to KNOW HIM. not with knowledge but in relationship.
Praying for everyone who is currently out-of-work or facing significant cutbacks in hours. For everyone wondering when they will be able to get back to work, how to support their family or put food on the table. Lord would you make your presence abundantly known as the Great Provider. Please replace fear with Your perfect provision.
Knowing we are unable to leave our country, with the email that said "this is the last chance", left me new emotions as I began to realize the situation of not being able to go home for emergencies. I need to keep thoughts about that - out of my mind, and live one day at a time. As I am recovering from a brain injury (AVM brain bleed in 2015), and as I get older (54), I'm more emotional about my family in the States. :)
In the past, in times of great hardship, people have come together to hold each other up. And now, despite stay-at-home orders and people being physically isolated from community, I am encouraged to see that same outpouring of love and community support in abundance. When Boston was devastated by the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, we came together—"Boston Strong." In this global pandemic, communities are coming together across oceans to support each other worldwide, and it is a powerful reminder of how strong the Father's love for us is and of His calling to "love your neighbor as yourself." Praise God, there are no borders to His love.
