Belated prayer request

I am late again with the latest prayer update that Bob sent out this week...

Hi Friends,

A couple of prayer requests....

1. In partnership with Intercessors for America and Community Prayer Watch, here in Northern Virginia, there is a pastors retreat this Saturday, Oct 15. Bob will be helping to cast the vision for awakening and transforming revival here in the community and the DC area. There is already a good sense of unity with focus on Jesus and His Kingdom. Please pray for humility, repentance, and power from the Holy Spirit to fill the body of Christ and to rest on us to demonstrate, communicate, and share God's love and freedom for us in Jesus. The meeting will be from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

2. Pray for the next step for the Royce crew regarding permanent housing here in the area. We are currently and temporarily residing in a vacation home near Middleburg, Virginia.

There are good and exciting things happening here...thanks for walking with us.
Much love,
Bob and Scarlett Royce

P.S. And the update on request #1 is that the retreat went very well. Bob was so encouraged by all the men he met and spoke with today. They discussed what repentance is needed in the group and this area. Unity was a theme. We believe God is at work and we are excited to be here for this time. Several men said they believe a breakthrough is coming!

Lancaster, PA

We have been in Pennsylvania since Friday. We came to visit some of our Canadian friends who were here for a family reunion. What a treat to get to spend time with Natasha and see her sweet family for some too-short moments over the weekend.

Since then we have been enjoying this gorgeous stone house and the horse farm where it is located, as well as the surrounding Amish country. There was even a platter of homemade cookies from our hosts when we arrived. What a special touch!

Many blessings!
