The fourth Tuesday of September is National Woman Road Warrior Day. Did you know that women now make up half of all business travel? I learned that information when I searched online at http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com If you want to honor a woman road warrior, you can use the hashtag #WomanRoadWarriorDay to post on social media.
Most people will think in terms of women who work for a company or corporation that sends them around their home state, the country, or the world.
I think of women road warriors for the Lord. As evangelists or missionaries, they travel to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. Women who pack their bags, books, and CDs also come to mind. They are Christian authors, speakers, singers, and writing or speaking coaches. I include them in the women road warrior statistics.
This past weekend I attended the fabulous Sisterhood Retreat at the farm of Babbie Mason. Talk about a woman road warrior. After the retreat, she gathered her sound equipment in one bag and already had her clothes in another to travel out of state an hour later. She flew to North Carolina to surprise and bless a friend on her birthday.
Please join me in celebrating National Woman Road Warrior Day on Tuesday, September 26, 2016. Recognize and thank God for the woman road warrior you know who sacrifices time and energy to serve others. Pray for her too. She needs your prayers for traveling mercies, traveling grace, and stamina. Pray also for her health and for her to be sensitive to God’s leading.
Psalm 119:133: “Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me.”
Prayer: Dear God, I pray for _________, a woman road warrior for you. Take good care of her and protect her from the evil one. Amen.
