Foster Care Prayer Vigil Begins Sunday

by Dan Cruver Published May 15, 2009

prayer-vigilMay 17-24 is National Foster Care Prayer Vigil week. FamilyLife’s Hope for Orphans,Focus on the Family, and Shaohannah’s Hope have partnered together to encourage Christians to make prayer for children in foster care a priority during the week of May 17th. 

These prayer vigils do not need to be formal gatherings, though they can be. A prayer vigil can take on many forms. It can be a formal, church-wide event, part of your regular Bible study or Community Group, or an informal gathering with your family after dinner. They simply need to be a time and place where Christians can come together to pray for our nation’s most vulnerable children, and the adults who work with and love them. Anyone can do one of these prayer vigils, and they can happen anywhere, even in the privacy of your own home.

If you are interested in having a prayer vigil with your family after dinner sometime next week, please register your vigil as soon as possible. Many children in foster care feel that they don’t have a prayer . . . let’s change that. If you have any questions, let me know in the comment section.

    my sister had an informal night at our house to bless us and our two foster children. our three bio kids, along with several family members, and church family got to pray for these two four year old twins, for God’s continued provision in their lives, and for our family to be the extension of HIS grace in their lives. it was such a gift to all of us
