Day 20–Conference veterans
Eph. 6:8–With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.
We lift up the conference veterans to you. We pray they would leave the conference with more than they expected. We pray you meet them spiritually, mentally, emotionally and meet any physical needs they may have. We ask for you to continue to direct their writing paths. Help them to recognize your plan for them. Give them the next step. Help them to know what to focus on. Set up divine appointments for them with publishing professionals they are to cross paths with.
Also lead them to newcomers who feel lost in the crowd and who need an encouraging word. Speak to their hearts in that moment and give them compassion. Help them to remember what it’s like to be new and unknown.
We ask for you to be known through their actions and through their words, both at the conference, and in their future writing endeavors. Direct them to those in dire need of mentorship and place in them the heart to do so. Bless their time and multiply their productivity and ability to juggle home life, church activities and writing. Grant them very clear direction for their careers. May they always write as worship. May they receive and give encouragement to and from newcomers to the conference.
Help them to be led by your spirit to pray for things and people on your heart. Keep them alert to what you are doing at the conference and in the hearts of those around them at any given time. Help them to join your plan in prayer and thanksgiving. Bless each of them.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
