“The Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23
Give thanks to God for all the good things He gives to us. Give thanks for the fruit that He fills our lives
with and ask God to show this in abundance.
Pray that we, as leaders, will show fruit in our lives to the girls. Pray for fruit in their lives that each girl in our companies will grow in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and selfcontrol.
“If any of you lack wisdom you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault and it will be given to you.” James 1:5
We as leaders in our GB Companies, whether as Captain, Officers, Sub-Officers or Associates need wisdom from God to do this important work. Ask God for wisdom in every circumstance, for every bit of badge work we do for every conversation with girls or other leaders. Pray also for the staff at Headquarters as they guide us.
Thank God that He provides the essential wisdom for the work we do week by week.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3: 5 – 6
This is a verse we should all know of by heart. It tells us to trust with ALL our heart. God is the priority in our lives. If we trust totally we will not depend on ourselves. God will lead us along the paths of life. Thanks to God for how he can lead us with love and care. Pray that the girls regardless of their age can follow God through the ups and downs of their life.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Thank our Heavenly Father for all the strength and courage He gives us to work for Him, whether it be in
GB or in any other sphere of Christian work. Teach the girls that no matter what they are doing or what they are going through, God will help them and be with them wherever they are, just as He was with Joshua.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1
Thank God for how He is our light and leads us, how He saves us from death. Give thanks to God for how when he leads us we have no one to fear. Give thanks to God for being on our side so we are in no danger. Pray for the girls and their families that they will see the light and receive the strength that we see in this verse.
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”
What a verse with so much encouragement. Give thanks that no matter what we are going through, water, rivers or fire – God will be with us as He has promised. We pass through many waters, the girls go through
waters as they cope with society. Pray that God will be very real to each girl in GBNI and be with them as they
walk through hard times in their lives.
“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
Thank God for this verse and for this promise. God promises to supply everything we need. For all leaders, girls, GBNI staff, for all who hold office in GBNI – God is giving each one of us everything we need. We will never miss out on anything.
God knows what is best for each one of us and provides it in large amounts. Give thanks to God for working in our lives.
