Finally, please be in daily prayer and ask all your priests and loved ones to be in daily prayer for the following:

  • The war which we expect will intensify on the committee, the speakers, and the attendees of the conference.
  • The enemy attempting to distract you or foil your plans or give us technical difficulties, delays in shipments or delays in flights, etc.
  • For God's angels to surround the conference and that His Holy Spirit fills the place and opens hearts, and allows for honesty, openness and vulnerability
  • For the families of all attendees, that those days are very peaceful and smooth for them, while their men are at the conference
  • That the men leave, touched, changed, hopeful, and determined with a new plan
  • And for the local chapters that we hope to start afterwards 

See you soon!
