prayer – worship – sabbaticals
Sabbatical Stays at My Father’s House
Good Lord willing we believe My Father’s House will be reopening soon on the beautiful East Atlantic coast of Florida. This is a time for you to be alone with the Lord, free from distractions.
Take encouraging and refreshing walks with the Lord along the extraordinary coastline that He has created for you. We encourage you to bring your modest casual cool clothing, your Bible, a journal or note pad, and a couple good ink pens — and most importantly your heart and ears wide open to your Holy Father God.
Get ready to hear His voice and experience His love for you!
You are also welcome to join Pastors & Psalmists Gary and Rhonda Petzoldt of Lilyband for times of worship and prayer.
Not only is the Holy Father offering you a spiritual renewal — He is offering you a rejuvenation for your body! If you would like, we offer our guests fresh organic juicing to help renew, heal and revive your body for His service during your stay…Psalm 103. The meals are either prepared here in our kitchen at the house, or brought in from the local health food store deli, or we can cater depending on the size of the group.
Or you can prepare your own healthy meals from the already supplied kitchen or a have a healthy fast and just enjoy the peaceful solitude with the Lord!
Our menu is organic, pure, non-GMO, and all natural foods with various fresh organic fruits, organic veggies, organic salads, organic meats and pure fish or shrimp. We also have wonderful organic non-decaf coffees and teas if you like.
Other special diet requests may be made well in advance by calling and speaking with us or our assistant.
Guest Guidelines – Holy Environment
This is a wonderful opportunity for you to do as Yeshua did to go away and be alone with the Holy Father.
Your time spent here with God is very valuable. To help benefit your time in the most effective way we have a few Biblical My Father’s House guidelines that are necessary — and we believe when you keep these it will greatly enhance your stay.
There is no need to bring any media resources as we already have a good trust worthy library of resources available for you to use if Holy Spirit leads you that way. It may be much more beneficial for you to just get in the Holy Word and prayer, and to be still and listen to His voice by the Holy Spirit.
You can bring a laptop if needed as we do have internet wifi. However, we strongly encourage you to only use the internet as a Bible study tool and not for social media, Facebook or unnecessary business. Don’t miss your focal point of being here — a precious appointed time with Holy Father and Jesus. Don’t let anyone nor anything distract you from Him.
There is grace for the laptop or mobile phone if you really do need to use it. We certainly understand you may need to attend lightly to business or lovingly to your spouse and family while you’re here.
Simply put — please highly value your time and the protected holy environment here with the Father who loves you so very much and wants your full attention.
New age practices of any kind — such as yoga, are strictly forbidden in the homes on any Ministry grounds and our beach front.
No smoking or vaping inside homes or on grounds. No alcoholic beverages of any kind and no pets.
Modest Apparel Guidelines
An important requirement is that at all times modest apparel is to be worn while staying here, even though your Sabbatical is located on the beach, we are still obeying the Word of God by setting an example of Christlike modest apparel for men, women and children.
If shorts, skirts or pants are worn please make sure they are below the knee and loose fitting. We do request that no skin-tight jeans or spandex exercise pants is worn, and if they are please use a long flowing top to cover them to the knees. Thank you.
This is Sabbatical time with Jesus — not a flesh show and worldly Florida beach vacation. Therefore, please do not wear swimsuits for your beach and sun time. We do understand you will want to spend time in the sun (Son) with the Father while you are here — moderate amounts of sunshine is encouraged and is very healthy. You will enjoy your stay all the more in honoring these helpful Sabbatical guidelines.
Why Modesty Is Important
Biblical modesty honors and protects one another as Brother’s and Sister’s in Christ. Having Christlike modesty in a prayer and worship environment is very needed so that we are not a distraction in drawing unneeded attention to one’s self.
When we keep these commands of His Word we are assuring that we do not give an open door to the enemy or the fleshly (carnal) thinking that could cause wrong thoughts leading to sin. Thank you.
1Tim 2:9-10 9. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with modesty and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10) But which becomes women professing godliness with good works.
