Overview - Register Here
The LORD is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works. The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he also hears their cry and saves them. (Psalm 145:17-19)
It would be amazing enough for God to reveal to us only how good and righteous He is. But He doesn’t stop there. He wants His people to know He is near.
It’s important that we make time to get away and pray. But even then, the emphasis cannot be on us. It must be on the Lord, His faithfulness, His goodness, and His promise He is near to all who call on Him. When we call on Jesus, we are confessing two things at once: I need you and you are enough.
The women’s prayer retreat is a time when you can get away, a time when you can get away to be with other sisters, to be one-on-one with the Father, and let Him replenish and encourage you. He wants to remind you just how loved you are in Christ. And He wants you to know He is not far away, but He is near.
Do whatever it takes to clear your calendar and get there.
