Scriptures for prayer retreat

Thoughts from verses given to me for the retreat by an intercessor:

John 17:1,9,11,12,15

my emphasis being on verses:

11 – protect/keep strong – to guard from loss or injury by keeping the eye upon
12 – protected them in your name – to watch, to be on guard
– lost – to destroy fully, to perish or lose
17,18 – Sanctify them – ‘walking in holiness’ is the theme of the retreat: The holy God is calling his people to be holy: adorned as a bride for the heavenly wedding banquet of the glorified Christ. (Revelation 21:1-5)

Luke 22: 31,32
As Jesus is praying for me, so my pastoral role as bishop is to strengthen God’s people. This is similar emphasis as Jesus’ prayer for the disciples and for us! -‘those who will believe in me (Jesus) through their word’ in John 17:20.

1 Timothy 2:1-8
The great challenge to be a person of prayer because God desires the salvation of all people in Christ. May it be so!
