ACFW Conference Prayer for those unable to attend conference
Jeremiah 29:11–For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.
Father God, Gently soothe us who cannot go to the conference so we aren’t too disappointed. Help us rejoice with those who are there. Remind us each day to pray for those who attend and serve. Let us take advantage of any opportunity we have to learn. Urge us to use the time you give us to write. Thank you for the gift you give us of ACFW. We love you, Father. Amen.

I wish that I could be there
to give your words true voice;
my absence seems to me unfair
but this is God’s own choice.
I am not meant to cross the lands;
cancer has quite seen to this,
nor to meet, and touch your hands;
what treasures I shall miss!
But know that you are known to me
although we’ll never meet,
and in remote society,
your friendship’s still as sweet.
I will go first, and will tell true
to God, the love I have for you.
Thank you, Andrew, for these words of encouragement. Health and finances keep me from attending, and your words express the feelings I have also experienced.
Blessings to you.
