14 Mar Our Prayer Team
By Prayer Team Coordinator, Arwen McGilvra –
No ministry or individual can stand for long without prayer. It’s integral to our missions program, our sponsorship program, and the daily responsibility of raising the children in our home. One of the powerful things about prayer is that God hears and answers your prayers from afar. Praying for our home in Guatemala doesn’t require you to be physically present. Our prayer team is an important extension of our ministry.
Every month when I get the list of requests from Guatemala, I am reminded how big of a task it is to raise 40+ children. It’s even a big task to keep them all in my prayers. I know our wonderful Special Mothers start their shift by praying for the kids. Many miles away we can “take a shift” too, and lift these precious children and their needs to the Lord.
Join with us this month in praying for:
- Continue lifting Lester up, that his character would be like that of Jesus. For the Lord to take away the pain and struggles in his heart and fill him with peace, love, happiness and harmony.
- For Brayan that God would grant him peace of mind. That he would know that the Lord can handle any concerns that he has. Pray that his trust in the Lord would grow.
- For Luis Muchuch that his case will be resolved soon and that God would be with him where ever he goes from here.
- For the children in our home who are eligible for adoption* that God provides a family where they can feel the love, warm, and peace.
- For the teenagers in our home, adolescence is a difficult stage, prayer for them and the Special Mothers as they need more attention, discipline, love and patience. That the Lord would bless all the Special Mothers with the skills needed in order to raise our teenagers.
- For Abraham, and Mario that God’s hand of healing would be upon them, for Abraham’s skin condition to be healed, and Mario to reach normal growth marks for his age.
- We thank the Lord for the miracles he has done in Josue’s life to turn his health around.
- For our Special Mothers to be filled with love and patience as they care for our children. Also for a special blessing of protection upon their health and well-being.
We trust in a God who is bigger than the brokenness, and who can heal all of our wounds and theirs, who can provide for our needs and theirs. Put this list somewhere you will see it often and pray BIG.
