January 28th – 30 2022
Hyatt Regency & Resort Hotel 100 Heron Blvd, Cambridge, MD 21613

2022 Annual Winter Prayer Retreat (WPR) 

Get ready to “Unlock Your Blessings” in 2022, as you take time away right at the top of the year for an unforgettable Prayer Retreat, remember that Jesus says in Mathew 16:19, “And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.” We pray that you will get access to the keys to unlock your blessings in the New Year and that whatever you decree for yourself will be established in your life and in all that concerns you. The 2022 WPR will be in-person, at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Resort in Cambridge, Maryland. We are very excited to welcome for the very first time to the retreat, our Guest Minister, Pastor Peter Balogun, a man known for powerful ministrations, accompanied with tangible signs and wonders. He is the Senior Pastor of the Citizens Church For All Nations Abuja, Nigeria. We are also delighted to welcome Minister Freke Umoh, a gifted and anointed Psalmist.

The New Year is a perfect time to pause and to get God’s perspective for the year, it’s an opportunity for you to reflect and reset yourself for the year ahead. So, make plans to attend and to spend this time in God’s presence along with other brothers and sisters in Christ – it’s a retreat for the whole family!

There will be prayer, praise & worship sessions, and many opportunities for one-on-one ministrations, and personal time with God. Take a moment to register, we are confident that as you set this time apart for solitude, reflection, corporate prayer and worship, that God will meet and surpass your expectations!

I have three prayer points. First my husband and I are believing in God for our 2nd child. The lord knows our struggle with this matter. We are praying that before the end of 2022 we give birth to a healthy happy baby. My 2nd point is my husband is working towards a new career. Lord I pray that he gets a new job. I pray he gets the salary he desires and a work load that still allows him to have time for his family. My last prayer point is for my son. Lord I pray that you guide his steps, you watch over him and keep him safe. Lord may he always walk in your light May you guide him through life being a kind, humble, smart child. May you guide him to be the leader I know he is. In Jesus name I pray Amen.
