Morning Meditation Psalm: Psalm 1
Song: “Knowing You”

Women of the Church

“Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.” (Titus 2:3-5)

Pray for….

- Effective fellowship among the women of the church
- Strengthening of biblical roles and values for women
- Encouragement and empowerment for wives and mothers
- Gifting and equipping of single women for their calling
- Grace and faith for single moms and for those who may struggle in their season of singleness
- Help for women burdened by infertility
- Women to rejoice in trials and persevere in affliction
- Young ladies to speak grace and promote unity
- Older women to train younger women in the Lord
- Church filled with women who hate gossip, idleness, jealousy, and strife but who study God’s Word daily, bear the church’s burdens through prayer, and encourage the saints in steadfast faith.
