Could You Not Tarry? Jane VanOsdol
Kneel: A Prayer Journey Christin Snavely
Hannah’s Prayer: Praying the Desire of Your Heart Mary Riggenbach
“Could You Not Tarry?” One of the things God has been teaching Jane over the past year is that when we hurry, it makes God scurry. Being effective in prayer and growing in a relationship with God takes time. In other words, we need to learn how to sit at the feet of Jesus. In the seminar entitled “Could You Not Tarry?” Jane VanOsdol examines what it means to sit at Jesus’ feet by examining the lives of three people: Mary, the sister of Martha and Lazarus; Anna the prophetess; and Jesus Himself. Filled with encouragement and practical tips, you’ll be empowered to find your own place at Jesus’ feet!
Kneel: A Prayer Journey "Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker! "
In a world full of distraction, noise, temptation, and media overload, it is a rare and powerful thing for Daughters of the Most High, to have an entire session at a conference to simply be still. That's what we are inviting you to do in "Kneel: A Prayer Journey." In this session, you will be given an opportunity to quiet your heart... and pray (to listen, to intercede, to confess). It's going to be beautiful. You'll be surprised at how quickly the time will go, and blessed by the peace and fulfillment the Holy Spirit will bring through spending this time in prayer.
This prayer room will be open for you following the conclusion of the conference. Also, we will be prepared with a few female leaders who would love to personally pray with you at any time, should you like to pray with someone. "Kneel: A Prayer Journey" outlines will be printed and available for you with a beautiful guided-prayer, centering around God's Word.
Hannah’s Prayer: Praying the Desire of Your Heart The more Mary reads Hannah’s story, the more she loves her and find herself relating to her. We will examine Hannah’s life and focus on her prayer life. We see in 1 Samuel her desperate prayer for the deepest desire of her heart. We also see her prayer of dedication to the Lord. We will learn together from those prayers. We also will be encouraged through scripture to commit our heart’s desires to the Lord through His gift of prayer.

Mary Riggenbach A native to the Michiana area, Mary resides in Niles with her best friend and husband of 10 years. They have three boys who fill their home with much activity, which requires them to be in constant dependency on the Lord. They have had a recent “sweet” addition of a daughter to their family! Mary has said many times over the past years that the life that the Lord has allowed her to live is not the life she had ever planned for herself. It has been a picture of His overwhelming love and grace, filled with blessings beyond what she deserves. Mary has seen first hand how prayer has changed every aspect of her life.
