Are you looking to enrich a healthy relationship, revitalize a tired one, or rescue one gone awry? Do you yearn to reconnect and grow closer to your spouse? We all want a lifetime of love, support and faith, but sometimes we need a little help. The Bloom in Marriage Retreat Weekend is designed to help couples grow in their faith, learn new tools to strengthen their marriage, inspire hope and rekindle the spark. Relationships under fire may even begin the journey of healing.

Our theme for this weekend:

Pray Big! God can do so much more!

This year’s speakers: Rick & Cindy Mercer

Rick was a former CPA and poultry farmer who was living a life of fast parties, alcohol, drugs and lust. Unknown to Rick, his wife Cindy was being called to pray and fast for her husband rather than walk away from the marriage. Over a seven year period, Cindy prayed persistently, refusing to give up on the promises of God found in Hebrews 7:25, "Wherefore, He is able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them." And God worked a miracle in their life! You will be encouraged as you journey through their story. They will take you from a marriage once destined to be destroyed and then share how they found purpose in their pain. The Mercer's greatest passion is sharing the power of prayer which is the main ingredient for enriching marriages and relationships. They will share with you how to gain victory and break the bond that Satan has on our families.

Rick serves as the Ministerial Secretary for the Oklahoma conference and Cindy serves as Prayer Ministries Director. She is a Registered Nurse and the author of Pray Big....God can do so much more!

Rick and Cindy find tremendous joy in sharing with others what God has and continues to do in their life today. They are actively involved in a variety of ministries which include prayer, addiction counseling, marriage restoration, men, women and youth.
