Watch #1 - Thursday 10:00am to 2:00pm – Team TravelingOur Deeper Still Team spends the day packing up our cars, driving to the location. The enemy likes to try to discourage this healing and tries to make traveling up or just being able to attend the retreat, difficult.
Watch #2 - Thursday 2:00pm to 8:00pm – Team Preparation - Set Up- Prayer MarchAfter arriving, our team starts setting up the guest rooms and getting things prepared so they feel welcomed and cared for. We need a lot of strength, energy, grace and organization. We spend the night preparing ourselves for the retreat. We do a prayer around the grounds. We also pray through the location and over each bed. As a team we need to be bound together in love, unity, faith and purpose. We also need protection and health throughout the retreat.

Watch # 4 – Friday 7:00pm to 10:30pm – Our participants share their storiesFor many, this is the first time anyone has asked to hear their story and the first time they have had the courage to be vulnerable about their hidden secrets and shame. For this time, we break into smaller more intimate groups. Our team members lead out by sharing their stories first, then we allow the participants all the time they need to share their own stories. We need stamina and strength and supernatural energy as this usually takes several hours for everyone to finish. This is a big step towards freedom. As one participant said before, "I have never even told my story to myself".
Watch # 5 – Saturday 9:40am to 12:00pm – We do a teaching on the Perfect Plan and Isaiah 53Through the teaching of the Perfect Plan, we want to heighten the participants' understanding about the sacredness of every human life and help them see the truths about themselves and their aborted babies. The Perfect Sacrifice covers the sufficiency of the cross and what the suffering, stripes, and blood of Jesus did for us. We also lead them through a prayer time of forgiveness and breaking shame. They need to fully step into forgiveness during the exercises/ prayers- forgiveness for self, for others and all who were involved in and surrounding their abortion experience. We especially ask prayer for attentive spirits and for a fresh revelation of what the Lord Jesus Christ did for them on the Cross-He paid it all- in full.
Watch # 6 – Saturday 12:45pm to 2:45pm – Grieving and Reconciliation/ Restoration of Mother's and Father's heartsDuring this time, we walk the participants through a tangible way to grieve for their aborted child(ren) and to experience reconciliation with these children knowing they will see them again one day in heaven. We also have a time of personal prayer with them, using a symbolic mother and father mantle. This is to reaffirm their “office” and call of Mothering and Fathering in the world. This section is particularly emotional as their hearts connect with this healing.
Watch # 7 – Saturday 2:45pm to 6:00pm – Tearing down Strongholds/ Breaking Unholy AttachmentsDuring this time, we minister individually with the participants. We take them through prayers to bring down spiritual strongholds that still hold them captive. We also offer a prayer time for spiritual encouragement. This one-on-one time gives each participant very personal attention. These hours are physically, emotionally and spiritually taxing, so we ask for strength, stamina and alertness for the team and the participants. We need keen discernment and His wisdom and revelation as we walk through these times of prayer with the participants.
Watch # 8 – Saturday 7:30am to 10:00pm - Celebrating Freedom /Crying out for RestorationBy Saturday evening, the participants have shed off so much weight that they are ready to celebrate. They not only have a new found freedom but they now have a new level of faith to ask the Lord to restore all that the locust has eaten. Just 24 hours earlier, they could never have imaged this night, but they worship Him from a heart that He has freed from condemnation and shame and it is a beautiful evening dedicated to bringing Him the worship He deserves and the enemy tried to rob from them, and Him! for so many years.
Watch # 9 – Sunday 8:30am to 11:00am – The Memorial ServiceThis memorial service is more beautiful than we can describe, but through it our participants can make a final exchange. They receive a garland of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a mantle of praise for the spirit of heaviness. In addition, they can finally memorialize and honor the children with whom they have now been spiritually reconciled. There is a beautiful time of sharing what the Lord has shown them with regard to their children. These are truly Holy moments. Abba Father showers His sons and daughters with His love so tenderly and beautifully. We then close with a brunch together before everyone heads back home.
Watch # 10 – Rear Guard starting Sunday Afternoon until the following SundayThis is a vulnerable time for both participants and for the team after a victorious weekend with Jesus. We need defensive prayers on our behalf and for our families for protection and CONTINUED victory. Please ask the Lord to bring us to your mind throughout the week, and as He does, just lift a prayer of protection for all of us and our families. Thank you!
